Re: La Caixa Fee?

Re: Made in China

Years ago, when I was living in the Philippines, I asked the maid if there was anything she would like bringing from UK. She really wanted an M & S jacket like one my Mum had when visiting, so I organised it. When it arrived from UK, I read the label - Made in the Philippines !

Re: Made in China

I'm pretty sure there are some unions - hubby used to be involved with a timeshare resort on the Costa, & I remember him complaining about the power they had over 'bosses'. A union representative was entitled by law to have x no. of paid days off to attend meetings, but most of them took extra jobs ...

Re: Coronavirus

A little bit of humour to lighten your day (posted by a friend on FB)


Just seen a guy in Tesco buying a load of Estrella beer, Chorizo, Manchego cheese & packets of Paella.

(wait for it.....)






I thought "Hispanic buying".

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

"My bank in the UK never tries to sell me anything." - you must have a very good bank, or times have changed ! When I worked as a cashier in a bank (admittedly years ago) it was sell, sell. sell ;-)

Non-res CGT - what can you use to offset this ?

I did do a search but all I found was for residents.

I have all the IVA invoices from the reform, which I understand can be used to reduce the gain, but what else can I claim ? The cost of electricity installation (a group scheme) ? fitting a kitchen ? Anything else ?

TIA

Re: Renta after sale

Thanks Beach, I think our CGT is quite low, so we will probably be going for a refund, but I will wait to do 2019 until I know for certain what is happening !

Renta after sale

Hooray – after nearly 6 long years, the casa is finally sold – completed this morning :thumbup: ! The lawyer is taking care of most of the paperwork, but I have a question about the Renta – I did 2018 in 2019, so I assume I need to do 2019 now, instead of waiting to near the year end ? I also assume...
