Re: Money transfer company

Have used HiFX for years now and no problem. Provided you transfer £4000 it's free.Obviously if you transfer more you get a better rate. It's usually in our Spanish bank the same day or the next.

Re: Renewing expired ITV

Sorry for the delay in replying and many thanks for the replies! Yes I did find using the last 6 digits worked. However I have chickened out and asked the local garage to arrange the appointment and take it for us, which they have done for next week. Fingers crossed!

Renewing expired ITV

Our Spanish car is in the community garage and comprehensively insured. Due to unforeseen circumstances the ITV due in June has lapsed. I have tried to book this before we return to Spain in November rather than wait until we get there. I have entered the registration number and the original registr...

Re: Community Debtors

Does it make any difference if the apartment/house is registered as a company as opposed to an individual? If so, is it easier to sue a company?

Re: Non resident tax and bank account

Hi alexander1, "TAXES 2013 (RENTA) 257,16 EUROS"............unless you have a very big villa with high catastral valor I would have queried this amount. Pull up the form and have a go at putting your figures in, you will need your IBI bill from last year. In fact you could just use your f...

Re: Non resident tax and bank account

I think the 'terrifying' refers to the form 210 not paperwork generally but that is a 'terrifying' amount to pay for something that is relatively easy to do yourself. Have you looked at the FAQ. You should not be scared to do it yourself and, remember, if your lawyer messes it up you are the one re...

Re: UK non-resident driving Spanish plated car

If it has had an ITV then you must also carry the ITV report that was issued when it was last tested. The stamp on the Ficha Technica and the windscreen sticker is not sufficient. Sid Ye Gods :!: We only bought the car in November (last one was stolen from our underground garage) so we have not got...

Re: UK non-resident driving Spanish plated car

Thanks Enrique - yes we own the car.
Thanks dxf.
Do we need to have the insurance policy or would a copy of payment via DD from the bank be acceptable?

Re: FIRST AID KITS IN CARS

Sorry to bring this up again but as I can't find a definitive answer as to what should be in a first aid kit in the car and having asked at various petrol stations (none of which had first aid kits) I wonder if anyone can give me up to date information. Legally do we have to carry one? Many thanks i...
