Re: Another driving licence question

maybe they have just reacted to your query by saying that you must have a licence rather than just a scruffy bit of paper from Trafico? I have never had a problem hiring in the UK with my Spanish licence, but would expect trouble if I did not produvce the plastic photo card.

Re: Padron definitive answer

If you are not resident I can see no point in being on the padron. You need it to register for health care (with S1 or whatever) or to change your visitor status to resident. Can’t think of anything else ( though some dealers ask for it when you buy a car).

This is why I loathe trying to do things like this: it makes me feel totally useless as others are obviously happy with using this system.

Re: Idiots' Guide to Renta?

I could not even see boxes, just a list of categories! We are not married so make individual returns, and the annuity that provides my private pension was not purchased with my taxed income, so ineligible it seems on the current interpretation.
Will have a cuppa and look again!!

Idiots' Guide to Renta?

Just got all my figures together to do my tax return for 2018, gone into the new "easier" Renta Web simulation, and am completely at sea already! Is there a guide in English as to what should be entered where? We have simple incomes - state pensions each, government pension for one, small ...

Re: Tiler recommendations/costs

Round here the going rate is circa €20 per sq m. Be careful with tile on tile...you may need to trim bottoms of doors, skirting tiles etc. It really does not take long to whip off the existing ones with a kango.

Re: Shopping around for contents insurance

My late ex-father-in-law, a contemporary of Harold Wilson, never had anything other than car insurance in his life. His theory was that any disaster was very unlikely to be major, that he always had or could lay his hands on some cash, and that over the years he had saved a fortune.

Just needs common sense really - if your foot can slip out of your footwear when you stamp on the brake, or use the clutch then it is a potential danger.

Re: Looking for a holiday home around Competa, Sedella and Salares

I think one's view of it will depend on whether you loved or loathed The Waltzer at fairs of old....if I was motorcycling it would terrify me, whereas the road up from Marbella to Ronda made me want to go out and buy a Triumph. Possibly could be used as training for a bad trip up the Bay of Biscay!

Re: Possible error on Modelo 100 tax return

It was explained to me that the only annuities that count for this special category are ones that have been bought with savings made using tax-paid mpney. An annuity bought with company contributions is not eligible. But then again if you surveyed 100 taxmen and 100 gestors how many different opinio...
