Re: Vaccine war with EU

If you believe those fake 'fact checkers' you will believe anything. The indoctrination is obviously working, at least for the time being. This would seem like the perfect opportunity for you to share your seemingly more reliable source of a 99% COVID-infection survival rate. Though if the link is ...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

While we still have mass-produced and legally distributed poisons like alcohol, tobacco, and sugar, any protests about the availability of vaccines that save 99.9+% of lives and prevent long term health damage just seem weak, to say the least. I thought that the survival rate of those having had Co...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Can you please show the source for the claim that it 'saves 99,5+% of lives'. Fair enough, there is no scientific way to know if someone who has a vaccine would have died without it. You can avoid the point I was making, but I just flipped the statistic, very roughly, of people who suffer seriously...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Despite what Boris and the Bash Street Cabinet are telling us on TV, this is what the NHS are sending to medical staff: From the start of the programme, the NHS has successfully had to adjust week-to-week vaccine delivery in the light of fluctuations in supply. As previously notified, pleasingly thi...

Re: Losing spanish sim

I was just coming to post about this after logging into the Mi Orange app and seeing a notification that they were going to start deactivating any numbers that hadn't been topped up in the 6 months. It used to be that I only had to send a message or something to keep it alive but it seems this chang...

Possibility of accessing IVTM online in Torrox

Hi, Is it possible to access (and pay) your IVTM online in Torrox? It's down as the fiscal residence for the car with the DGT since last year but this will be my first year paying it here. I used to do it all online elsewhere by logging into the townhall site, but the Torrox one doesn't seem to cove...

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

It's interesting how the low countries appear so often on those account closing lists, I wonder if it's exceptionally hard to get banking licences there or is the client base just so miniscule it isn't worth it (presumably all the posted diplomats etc retain UK addresses, so this doesn't concern the...

Re: Non-Resident 90 days in a rolling 180?

Just a thought, but the Telegraph and Mail are dire on this and it's probably because they don't want to let their readers know what they conned them into. I'd recommend Simon Calder who writes for the Independent. Here's his latest: Your arrival date in the Schengen Area – which covers most EU coun...

You need to complete the Modelo 030...basically tell the taxman about your change in circumstances..link below https://www.agenciatributaria.es/AEAT.internet/en_gb/Inicio/Ayuda/_comp_Consultas_informaticas/Categorias/Presentacion_de_declaraciones/Censos__NIF_y_domicilio_fiscal/Modelo_030/Presentaci...

Re: Changing from resident to non-resident tax declaration - what needs doing?

Just because you have spent more than 183 days away from Spain doesn't mean you lose your tax residence. Indeed it is possible to have tax residency in both UK and Spain. In which case you have to read the Double Taxation Agreement to see which country takes primacy in taxing you. A good point, tha...

Changing from resident to non-resident tax declaration - what needs doing?

Hi all, After working in Spain 5 years we've been stuck in the UK the last year because of Covid and ended up renting a house, getting jobs etc. We've been here well over 183 days and will need to do our 2020 declaration as non-residents (NR). As Spanish residents, we would do this before June 2021,...

Not for that site specifically, but sometimes the security certificates on websites throw a wobbly if your computer clock time is different to the site's server, so if you get "Invalid Server Certificate Error" try setting your British PC to Spanish time temporarily. This is nothing to do ...

Obtaining padron colectivo

Back in March I was on the town hall website and managed to get an individual padron certificate for myself, and a 'colectivo' one for everyone at the property. That latter option seems to have disappeared now - does anyone know if I'm missing something on the website (has it moved somewhere obscure...

Re: Padron deregistration after move

Yes, I did that in December and now find myself on the padron in two autonomous regions.
Torrox has a 'baja' option on the website but the other town hall does not, so presumably it's meant to work automatically up there.
