Re: Unknown Embargo on Bank Account

The bank staff will be unable to add to the information given on the documentation. Bank account embargos are usually initiated by AEAT on behalf of another entity. This is certainly the case with the Patronato. If you are able to access the link shown in your second post I assume you have a digital...

Re: VPN for BBC iPlayer

Why should a recommendation for Pure VPN be any more of a blatant advert than a recommendation for Smarty DNS? I use Pure VPN and have done for several years with consistently good service and instant responses to queries and I recently took up an offer of a five year subscription for $60 but perhap...

Re: Car sale complications

I was once stopped by the guardia when taking my vehicle for a test one day late. It had expired on the previous day, a Sunday. I had a printout of the appointment and a printout of a confirmation email. They said I was breaking the law by driving a vehicle with an expired ITV and the fact that I ha...

Re: Payment of 3% When a Non Resident's Property is Sold

Spanish lawyers rarely take responsibility for anything. It is the buyers who will incur the wrath of AEAT and be subjected to a considerable fine if the retention is not paid or if it is paid after the period allowed for payment. You will not be able to complete your own Capital Gains Tax return un...

Re: Car sale complications

The vehicle will have to be taken to an ITV centre on a trailer. Is it insured?

You can apply for a copy of the NIE certificate but you will need a power of attorney.

Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

Lerma town centre is a five or ten minute walk but there were no restaurants, just cafe/bars. However, remember, that this was more than twenty years ago so there may well be restaurants now especially as it seems to have become a favourite stopping off place for people travelling the length of the ...

Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

I always stayed at the Alisa. The first time was before the motorway was built and the main road went through the centre of the town and I was looking for somewhere with a secure covered car park because I had a soft-top loaded to the gunnels. From then on I always stayed there and it was even bette...

If you want to fly to Bournemouth from Málaga the choice is between Ryanair and Ryanair. I doubt even the most avid practitioner of petty one-upmanship would choose to fly to...

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

All this petty one-upmanship over not flying with Ryanair pretty much leaves me cold. The only thing I have against Michael O'Leary is the fact that he does not want the United Kingdom to leave the execrably dysfunctional and corrupt organization currently known as the European Union.
