Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

The details of the vaccinations appear on the Click Salud site within 24 hours and can be downloaded if you have a digital certificate.

Re: Paying car tax

You can only pay it to the town hall. The province you live in is irrelevant as it is the town that decided how much you will pay and you have to pay them. Whether you can pay online depends on whether the town hall allows you to do that.

I'm not aware anyone said it was paid to the Junta.

When I moved from Málaga province to Granada province, I went to the town hall to get a new Padron and they sorted out the car tax and a few other things as well.

Re: Renta 2020

The A.coM FAQ is excellent but does not actually tell you how to input the amounts. It was never intended to be a guide to actually making your declaration. I did write one years ago and it ran to about 20 pages as there are so many options unless you have a simple income profile. Add to that the a...

Re: Muddy water circulating in pool

I had this problem years ago when the road outside our house was a dirt track. The very fine dust that blew over into the pool was too fine for the sand filter to remove it. From then on we always vacuumed to waste. Sand filters are not very efficient when it comes to very fine particles. You can tr...

Re: No tourists until after summer

Re: Building options

We built a house in 2002 using Spanish builders - brilliant builders. Trying as hard as we could there was nothing to put on the snagging list. As for foundations, they were huge and contained a massive amount of steel. It took 6 cement lorries to fill them. Far better than in the UK. Smooth plaster...

Re: Pro Innate Immunity or Anti Vax - Adverse reactions, Etc

I looked at one recently. In the 1 in 10 section the top of the list was Heart Attack! When you look at the interactions with other drugs and medical conditions that preclude its use, you could not take anything! Sometimes if you have two different medical conditions the drugs for one make the other...

Re: Clave Pin

The main advantage of a [email protected] is that it is portable and doesn't need to be locked to a particular device, but it can be more complicated to use than a DC. Most sites now seem to accept both, but a [email protected] is not always acceptable unless you have had it authenticated in person, like you have to do wit...

Re: Covid Restrictions Andalucia

No. If a town has a municipal closure due to over 500 cases no one is allowed in or out. The lifting of the provincial borders does not change that.

Re: Pro Innate Immunity or Anti Vax - Adverse reactions, Etc

This is getting personal again. I appreciate that statistics are always a difficult subject but I will not tolerate any form of personal attacks, however minor.

Argue as much as you like but keep it objective, not personal.

Re: Calcium in kettles

Mineral water contains minerals - no surprise there! Minerals cause the cal formation which needs to be descaled. Distilled water or the sort you buy for your steam iron does not. That is the best of all to avoid cal but it has no taste. Best bet is to use the water you like and descale occasionally...

Re: Thousands of British expats in Spain remain “exposed and unprotected”

They should not worry about minor differences in the amounts declared for a specific income source. What they will be looking for is a whole source of income that was not declared. For example, if you take a lump sum from a pension fund or investment and don’t declare it, then that’s when you will g...

Most people who are happy to have the vaccine just make their own decision and certainly don’t cry Fake News. I made the decision to have it as, based on the evidence, if I got Covid I have about a 90% chance of it killing me based on other existing medical conditions etc. The chance of a problem wi...
