Re: Property transaction - help!

Thanks. Not desperate for sterling so will stick with euros. Next question - I have all my old tax returns here...but I seem to recall that I will need a piece of paper from Hacienda - a certificate of fiscal residency? Do I simply go to my local AEAT office armed with my old tax returns and request...

Euros it is then.
We've just agreed the deal and he's already paid a deposit to his lawyer.
The sale is unlikely to be completed this side of 31 Dec so fortunately I won't have to declare/pay until 2013.

Re: twitter button

Yup :thumbup: I too have steadfastly stuck my head in the sand re Twitter until very recently. However, used in the right way, it makes for an exceptional business promotion tool. If your competitors have a presence on Twitter, then you're missing out, like it or not. Tweets have to be short and so ...

Re: What to pay a labourer/builder

Depends on how skilled they are. If they're a labourer (peón), then I know of Spanish guys working for between 8 and 10 euros an hour right now. If they're a "proper" builder (albañil) then anything from 15E an hour upwards. It also depends on whether it's black money or legit :wink:

Java updates

Different issue to my DVD burning problem, but whilst uninstalling various programmes that I'd downloaded in order to attempt DVD burning - I notice that I have three Java (TM) 6 updates in my programme files (updates 3, 7 and 26). Do I need to have all three (are they inter-dependent?) or can I uni...

Nope, don't seem to be able to even do that!!! Not with these particular discs. (I can transfer music to CD discs) I even tried to format them, in case that were required, but they keep being spat out! It's like there's some incompatibility issue between the disc drive and the discs...do I need to &...
