Re: Community bank account charges

I was sent an email from the president confirming CaixaBank's account management fee increase. He actually visited the branch to complain and request an exemption from the bank on the grounds that it is a property owners' community bank account. Apparently they weren't interested. We've had problems...

Community bank account charges

The president of our garage owners' community has just been in touch to advise that CaixaBank is from today going to raise the monthly account fee to 60 euros per month! I don't know what the fees were but as there are only three of us it is going to hurt and will more or less double our individual ...

Re: Easyjet

Same here, my October flights were cancelled and easyJet have removed XRY as a destination. I actually spotted this before the inevitable cancellation email arrived. So I've had to rebook with Ryanair and now wait 30 days or so for my next tranche of easyJet refunds - see above...

Re: Malaga Airport Arrivals from UK

Enrique, my flight to SVQ was at least 152 out of 189. Others may have checked in after me but the front of the plane looked full.

Re: Malaga Airport Arrivals from UK

I arrived at SVQ earlier in the week having printed and completed my form in advance. Was waved through passports without any inspection. Behind passports the completed forms were being collected and checked. Once my form was checked I was waived through - matter of seconds. Did not see any temperat...

Re: Easyjet

I have the answer to my question to Wicksey; confirmation of my refund request arrived a few minutes ago. Having just checked my booking, only the outbound sector is showing as cancelled. Presumably I'll need to rinse and repeat this time next week...

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

Thanks for your insights - I hadn't considered that angle. I thought a possible explanation might be that the currency matches the fiscal residence and as such, as you quite rightly point out, the source of funds would indeed be GBP prior to conversion and payment.

Wicksey, I've submitted my easyJet refund claim as per their instructions. Out of interest how long did you have to wait before receiving email confirmation?

Re: Easyjet

They've not actually cancelled my flights per se but they've been marked as 'Sold out' for a while now as with all flights to SVQ and XRY throughout July and August I've only received this missive so far: "We’re getting in touch regarding your upcoming trip. We really hope to be able to welcome you ...

Re: Easyjet

Wicksey, did you submit your claim via easyJet's "Covid-19 and disruption Help Hub"? I'll be requesting a refund next week so it would be helpful to know beforehand which process you used.

Re: Tax penalty

When you say submit are you specifically referring to the completion of the forms to generate the .pdf documents? These are the documents I take into my bank in Spain to make payment as I don't have a digital certificate and there appears to be no other way to pay.

Re: Tax penalty

I've always been somewhat confused by the June deadline for submitting IRNR Modelo 210. Like the OP I've not been able to return since the March lockdown so am in a similiar predicament. Although we technically own three properties in Spain only one is residential i.e. vivienda, the other two are a ...

Re: La Caixa Banking FEES

I don't bank with them but La Caixa offer a cuenta de pago básica (Basic Payment Account) at 3 euros per month. If your Spanish is not up to it then perhaps employ the services of a local gestoria to downgrade the account on your behalf. The bank might might refuse you point blank but perhaps less s...

But how are tourists / non-residents supposed to get around from 1st July onwards? I'm thinking specifically public transport (not taxis), for instance Renfe and bus companies are still quoting El Real Decreto 463/2020, de 14 de marzo COVID-19 restrictions with significantly reduced timetables and s...

Re: Cuenta de Pago Básica?

Sorry, Patricia - it's Santander's 123 Cuenta Zero account. You need to deposit at least 600 euros a month and have three different active direct debits per quarter to avoid the monthly 12 euro account fee. If you meet these criteria you might consider switching but who knows how long it will be bef...

Re: Cuenta de Pago Básica?

So no 12 euro fee this month - my dodge involves transferring in the minimum amount for a fee free account. I already meet another criteria for free banking by having at least three direct debits per quarter (internet, luz and water). I then repatriate a smaller amount to meet the minimum sterling f...
