Re: Comments and queries re FAQ for Non-resident income tax

I'm sure BeachComber will be along in a minute but in the meantime could she be referring to the "anagrama" that he referred to in his notes "Etiquetas (self-adhesive labels) will not be required as the bar code is generated by the program, however, the 'anagrama' is not reproduced. T...

What's a correador? Can't find any translation for the term and Google doesn't turn up anything useful.

Re: Pensioners prescriptions

Habitually means that you live in Spain more than you do in any other place. It's that simple. If you have a place in Spain and a place in the UK and spend the majority of your time in the UK then that is your habitual residence.

Many thanks Beachcomber.

I can't find a referencia on my IBI bill but there is an Identificativo (20 digits) or a Matricula (8 digits). Is it one of these?

The 210 form and their PDFs can be generated in Spanish or English. I've just been doing a trial completion and noticed that on the English version the alignment of the data that have been entered within the fields on the generated document is a bit off and the bar code actually obscures the place ...
