Re: Tax Form 720 Asset declaration

I'd just like to leave you with a few thoughts to consider regarding pensions . . . Under things to report: "Article 42 ter.3.b): ...

Re: Health Care in Spain

He said we should receive a letter from Granada within two weeks (so in Spanish time that is anytime between now and Christmas) which we should take to our local medical centre for them to process the cards (so the fun will start again)! Once everything was in order, the letter was signed about a w...

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

Britain has dispatched a task force of top civil servants to Cyprus to advise the stricken island on how to pull its banking system back from the brink of collapse.
Surely this could have done via txt/SMS: "give the bankers a shed-load of money" (37 characters) :P

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

what makes me laugh is you've got the UK & other countries trying to do away with cash so they can control & record all transactions & the Cypriots are stating that it'll be illegal to use anything other than cash. :lol: By gradually reducing cash transactions over the years - they now can control ...

Re: Tax Form 720 Asset declaration

Parilla: I'm not convinced that Spanish nationals are ignoring this legislation as much as that it is very unlikely to apply to them. I don't know many people who have lived all their life in the UK that have any assets or rights outside the UK. Although this 720 declaration came out of general mone...

Re: Tax Form 720 Asset declaration

How is it logical to assume that declaration of those assets now, means they must have been aquired with black money, or must be regarded as income, and are therefore automatically subject to tax and penalties ? If you declare them now , there's no problem. But if you don't - and they find out abou...

Wicksey wrote:you can be charged 150% of the 'tax due' as a penalty ... but what if there isn't any tax due on your assets?
badly worded, but that idea comes from the taxman's reasoning that such assets have come from unearned income, hence:
a high tax rate
plus a penalty for late payment of tax
plus a fine

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

0.2% is 200 on 100k. :think: UK income tax began at a levy of less than 1% on incomes over £60 (£5k as of 2013), and increased up to a maximum of 10% on incomes of over £200 (17k today). Remember: tax rates can go up as well as . . . . . er, actually they only seem to go up :) 0.2% is 2 billion on ...

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

14.32 Meanwhile rumours have surfaced about a Spanish deposit tax of 0.2pc, despite reassurances the Cypriot situation is unique. Well it IS unique: it's a unique idea in Cyprus and unique in Cyprus up to now :lol: . I suppose it will be unique in Spain soon as well. And then it could always be uni...

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

Depositors with more than €100,000 in Cypriot banks – Russian or not – will undoubtedly have done all they can to remove it by now.

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

Spain, it would appear, has changed constitutional rules to enable a so-called 'moderate' levy on deposits - as under previous Spanish law this was prohibited. For now, they claim the 'levy' will be "not much higher than 0%" and is mainly aimed at regions in Spain that have "made no effort to collec...

Re: 10% raid on banks in an EU country

When even politicians find an idea too distasteful it's a sign that that the banksters have sunk too far. In the scheme of things they are somewhere below the level of whale-sh1t.
