Re: Coronavirus

Does anyone remember a film called 'It Happened Tomorrow' about a man who could read the next day's newspaper before it was published? Mark Wilding read the articles 'a few days ago' but the article in the second link was only published yesterday, the same day I posted it. The labour reform bill was...

Re: Coronavirus

How is it proposed that these people arriving in the UK get from the aeroplane to their place of self isolation? Will they all be taken by ambulance? No, probably not. They will pass through customs and other public areas of the airport then maybe take a taxi, train or bus etc and then once they hav...

I wish the Spanish government would watch this video along with everyone else before it is removed by the You Tube Thought Police because it dares to contradict the mainstream narrative:

If you are registered on the INSS web site and it will tell you to the day how much longer you have to work together with an estimate of how much your pension will be.

Re: CAR ITV - Whats going on??

Yes, that's what I thought. It also probably gives you the opportunity to change the time/date if you wish. If you have given an email address they will also send a confirmation by email showing the four digit reference number that they call a 'localizador'.

Are you sure it is an actual appointment not just the offer of an appointment that you need to confirm or change if you wish?

If you type 'Veiasa' into Google Play Store it should be the first result. It's full name is 'Veiasa ITV Andalucía'. You register your vehicle registration number and date of first registration or chassis number on the app and it will show full details as held by DGT including the date of expiry of ...

Perhaps we should all read this published by Oxford University Press in 2011: https://academic.oup.com/annweh/article/56/1/102/166254 It may take some time! It particularly applies in Spain given the onset of summer temperatures particularly in the 'Frying pan of Andalucía'. It may do more harm to t...

I made the appointment via the ITV Android app which is working correctly. There seems to be some issues with the web site when accessing it from a PC.

Re: CAR ITV - Whats going on??

I can confirm that the new ITV will be valid from the date of its expiry not the date of the test. There are some rules to follow when you are at the testing station. 1.- Put the documentation underneath the windscreen wiper. 2.- A mask (without valves) must be worn at all times during the process. ...

Re: CAR ITV - Whats going on??

It is good that they are allowing plenty of time to get the outstanding tests done but, apparently, the test will only be valid for the appropriate period fom the previous date of expiry rather than from the date of the test. I shall find out for sure this week, assuming the car passes. Even if it d...

You get what you pay for as always. I recently had to replace one of the street lamps that illuminate my driveway. I bought the replacement from a well-established specialist lighting shop in the town. They had two which looked identical but one was half the price of the other. The cheaper one was m...

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

I think you may be neglecting to click on 'Generar Declaracion' (or 'Generate preliminary tax return' in English) in the extreme bottom right hand corner of the form. This generates the PDF. The file you export is not a PDF it is the formula which you will import next year and can only be 'opened' b...
