Re: Mobile Phone - Data Speed

Thanks Gerry. I was told the sims can connect to Yoigo or Orange depending on signal strength. However, just ran Speedtest Ookla - interesting.

Mobile Phone - Data Speed

We live in the campo and rely on mobile networks. We have three lines with Masmovil, all showing 4G connectivity. One line for the last month has very slow data. The other two are excellent. If I move the problem sim card to another device the problem moves with the sim. We have been sent a replacem...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

I think you still have to enter a number in the box 0075. You put an X in the box below (0076) if the "NIF" is for a different country.

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

To be clear on the information they are asking for it was described by my gestor as "Para completar la declaración estaba pendiente de que nos facilitaras en número del Documento Nacional de Identidad, o similar, del inquilino del piso de Inglaterra." No name or address. I have raised the issue with...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

I agree with you and raised the point with my UK letting agent. I am waiting to hear. Meanwhile the issue remains that without an entry in a box on the 2018 tax return it appears it cannot be completed. I was given this link https://www.invertia.com/es/noticias/impuestos/20190411/novedad-renta-2008-...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

I have now heard via other forums that it is a new requirement. Clearly it is applicable only to landlords/tenants in Spain but I suspect the elctronic La Renta needs a number in a box. Others with UK tenants have given NI numbers. Has your gestor submitted your return yet?

La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

I have been declaring UK rental income on my Spanish tax return for ten years. This year my Gestor has requested the number of the National Identity Document, or similar, of the tenant in England. Apparently this is a new requirement for La Renta 2018. Has anyone else with UK rental income to declar...

Re: Mozailla Firefox

Thanks for the advice. The Malware was all MindSparc. I ran Adwcleaner and Malwarebytes several times but after initially being able to remove the malware it always reappeared when I opened Chrome again. I then reset Chrome and all now appears well. Having said that I still have a preference for Fir...

Re: Mozailla Firefox

I'm running Widows 8.0.and Firefox is fine, no issues. If I use Chrome, Malwarebytes picks up 336 items of malware each time I open it even without visiting any sites. Any explanations? I was intending to use Chome for internet banking because it is said to be more secure than Firefox.

Re: Advice on choosing the correct Contracted Power

In our area of rural NW Galicia I see many ICP seals that have been broken and illegal ICP's fitted allowing the owners to draw more power than their contracted potencia. I have never heard of anyone being caught for this but I presume with the introduction of smart meters they will be. Whether a se...

Re: Advice on choosing the correct Contracted Power

We actually requested an upgrade to the 5.75kW from the previous 2.0kW. I do not believe that Endessa or others could change individuals Potencia Contrada independently.

Re: Advice on choosing the correct Contracted Power

I have now received my next bill and this states Potencia Contrada 5.75kW. The previous bill must have reflected a change from 2.0 kW to 5.75kW part way through through the last billing period to give the figure of a Potencia Contrada 4.948kW. I must now have the old ICP replaced so we can enjoy a w...

Re: Advice on choosing the correct Contracted Power

No, there is only one figure quoted which appears under the DATOS DEL CONTRACTO after Potencia Contrada on the first page of the bill. This is why I am a tad confused as I would have expected to see somewhere a figure of 4.6kW or 5.75kW. I am with gasNatural Fenosa. If you google maximetro you will ...

Re: Advice on choosing the correct Contracted Power

When we moved into our house the Potencia Contrada was 2.2kW. We had some work carried out and an electrician changed the ICP from 10A to 20A so our maximum power usage before tripping the ICP was 4.6kW. About a year ago a new smart meter was fitted and we decided it was time to “regularise” our sup...

Re: Kindle Paperwhite - Books Queuing. Modem Issue?

Thanks Enrique. I have played with the 3G modem with no joy. There is apparently a problem downloading books following the software upgrade that others are experiencing but I do not believe it is widespread. So yes, the pragmatic solution is to download to the PC and transfer to the Kindle. Thanks a...

Kindle Paperwhite - Books Queuing. Modem Issue?

We have a Kindle Touch and an early Kindle Paperwhite. Recently the Paperwhite had a software update and now will not download books – they just queue. No problem with the Kindle Touch. I contacted Amazon, they were very helpful and sent me a refurbished Paperwhite at no cost despite the original be...
