Re: Sold my car (Spanish registered left hand drive) as a Non Resident

Gerry, you are right, it only applies to scrapped vehicles, but not to resales.

Re: Sold my car (Spanish registered left hand drive) as a Non Resident

No, the owner of the car on Jan1 is liable for the whole years tax. No refunds.

Re: Spanish Will

The normal way is to have two wills. An English one for English assets and a Spanish will for Spanish assets.

He would also get a very large inheritance tax bill to pay.

Leaving it to your favourite charity might be a better idea.

Yes but loads of people just get it at the pharmacist for about €10 or so.

Re: equivalent of we buyanycar

To be fair the online buyers agree a price when they see the car and transfer the money while you wait and do all the paperwork etc. In the UK my daughter swapper her car with Cazoo. They delivered the new one in a big van and took the old one away. The s/h prices have gone crazy. Some less than one...

Re: Covid super variant

I don’t know why people criticise the jab for being less than 100% effective and that it requires boosters. Most of us have happily been having our annual ‘flu jab without comment. The ‘flu jab on average is only 40% effective, only lasts 6 months and requires an annual booster with a different form...

Re: equivalent of we buyanycar

Yes, I think that is one of their places. They are usually hits in car parks. I think there is one outside Makro near the airport. For a less than 5 year old car the prices have gone through the roof. Whether they actually pay out the original valuation, I don’t know.

Re: Covid super variant

I don’t remember seeing any claims that it was causing more severe symptoms, more that it was more likely to evade some of the protection that current vaccines give, resulting in more symptomatic infections.

At this stage no one really knows hence the panic.

Re: Visa Application Temporary Address

I understood that you can only get the S1 accepted AFTER you have become resident. Catch 22 and it seems crazy. Anyone else know about this? It may be different if you applied for residency before this year.

Re: UK Rental Income, tax query.

Not according to the latest guidance from Blevins Franks tax guide. Where did you get the 50%figure from?

If you are right, when did it change?

Re: Booster Jab

Please keep all these conspiracy theories and statistics in the New Religion thread.

People need to make up their own minds about whether to have the booster jab without negative views from the tiny minority views on this forum.

Re: Smudging Print

As far as I know, the only inks that don’t smudge when any water gets on them are the relatively rare waterproof inks. Compatible inks use the same ink as the OEM cartridges. The printer manufacturers don’t make ink, they just sell it at an outrageous price. I used to work for a company that manufac...

Re: Current Bottled Gas Prices

The actual wholesale price has gone up much more than that. The price of the standard orange bottles is subsidised by the government. The price of a non subsidised 35kg bombona is €76.90
