Re: Spanish income tax for 2017

Thought that was the case but just checking in case I missed something. My pensions are paid into my Spanish bank so don't need to apply an exchange rate.

Spanish income tax for 2017

Are there any changes to allowances, rates etc for the 2017 tax year?
I know my income for 2017 will be less than that for 2016 due to the exchange rate.
I'm in the process of preparing my budget for 2018.

Re: Re registering camper van

Make sure you have the certificate of conformity from the manufacturer ... if you havent got it already this will be an additional small cost. If you cant get one, and from 1989 you may find it diffiult, then you will probably have to have a Ficha Tecnica done by a certified engineer here in spain ...

Re: Health Insurance Grace Period

Many policies are subject to policy limitations and increased premiums when you reach 65 or other ages. One that does not is Prevision Medica who do not seem to take age into account at all!

Re: Barcelona safe - yes or no?

Getting back to the original topic. I very much doubt if the recent political situation in Barcelona will affect it's safety for a tourist. However Barcelona has, for a long time, had problems with organised gangs of pickpockets particularly on the underground system. They are very well organised an...

Re: remembering passwords

I started programming on mainframe computers, an IBM 1401, in the early 1960s. Long before PCs had been invented. After a few years we got desktop terminals to connect to the mainframe. It was decided that each terminal had to have a password to connect to the mainframe. It was not uncommon to find ...

Re: Advice on electricity

Are you referring to an ICP in your fuse box? Do you have a smart meter? If you have a Smart meter then it has an inbuilt ICP which should have been uprated via a software update when you changed contracts. This also means that the ICP in your fuse box is redundant and can be removed. Cheers Gerry S...

Re: Spanish mobile use from USA

As far as I know the most economical way of using a phone is with the watsup app as calls are free as long as you stay within WIFI zones Depends on your mobile phone provider. I'm with Vodafone here in Spain. I can use my data connection, on my mobile phone, and Whatsapp doesn't use any of the data...

Re: Unplugging during thunderstorms?

For your router/ telephone cables buy a surge protector.
To protect the whole householder get a surge protector fitted to your house "fusebox".
Endessa now insist one is fitted on all new installations.
