Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

I transferred with Revolut today, rate over 1:15 and didn't cost a penny or a cent, definitely the best option. I'm with Paddy on that.

UK Rental Income, tax query.

Hi When we move over as residents in May we will be renting out a property in the UK as extra income. Where do i pay the tax on that and if it is in Spain what is the rate on rental income, I've been told its 40% on rental income but our tax advisor in Spain doesn't seem to be replying to our emails...

The virus is not winning this on it's own, it's being helped along by the ones not practicing, hands, face and space this is where the damage is being done. The covidiots!

Re: live Channel 4 on NOW TV and Fire Stick

I've had Firestick's since they first came out but don't know much about them. I have noticed though that the storage is being used up fairly quickly. Does sideloading an app (whatever that is) save on space?

SIM Card Internet

I have a local village guy supplying our internet via a little dish thing outside connected to a double aerial modem inside but not great. In our street movistar can't supply internet down a cable and last time i used them for a year or so, i had an extortionate fee for a 3G plug in modem which had ...

Re: T.I.E

You need to see a tax advisor ASAP. If you are here permanently from next year it means that you will be tax resident from January 1st 2021. The tax system here is completely different from both the UK and Ireland. What that means is practically you will be taxed in very different way from what you...

Re: T.I.E

It would seem an extreme measure to get full residencia here if you're only intending to be here for a long holiday of 5 months which won't meet residency rules. Unless Jogger you are going to stay here longer term? I've read a lot of newspaper articles about the fact that after 31 Dec non-resident...

Re: T.I.E

jogger - you must be aware that you will have to change your routine if you are resident? You will have to spend at least 183 days a year in Spain to maintain your residency, and of course change to declaring all your income when you do your resident's tax return in 2022 for the year 2021. Yes Pete...

My wife is waiting for her TIE card, she's done the fingerprint thing already, how long does it usually take betwe...
