Re: Tobacco

The Spanish Government announced hikes in the duty on tobacco and fuel the day after the European elections. It seems that polititions around the world are just as cynical in the way they treat the electorate as in the UK.

Transfer of vehicles at the Trafico Office

I have just bought a car here in Andalucia and rather than go the Gestoria route decided to try the transfer myself at the Trafico Office in Malaga. First I downloaded the form ”Notificacion de Transmission de Vehiculos” from the Trafico website. You get two duplicate forms side by side. These were ...

I will be a pensioner in another nine years and hear lots of rumours about what you can get and can't get pension wise, and also what you can get and can't get if you still lived in the UK when you first get your pension.
