Re: Non resident beneficiaries of a will

Residency manchester? Yes, I have vocally here opposed it in the past but my wife decided she needed her freedom so now she can have it, my lad's grown up and taken care of so my plan is to move permanently to Gran Canaria, put my savings there and live as a legal resident, I am currently in the pr...

Re: Non resident beneficiaries of a will

Good thread this, thanks, it has answered some of my yet unasked questions.
I have said for years that I will never become a Spanish resident, due to personal circumstances I have now revised my thoughts and decided to apply for citizenship, some of the comments here have been very helpful :-)

Re: Transferring money to Spain/Gran Canaria

Thanks for the input, this money would be the residue of a divorce, I have no issues with declaring the scource or paying the relevant taxes and will no longer have a U K base, I was just wondering if anyone here has done this or similar, I will of course get professional advice before acting !

Transferring money to Spain/Gran Canaria

Anyone have a brief answer to my simple question ? If one was to become fully resident in Gran Canaria and deposit €500.000 in a resident bank account here, severing ties with U K and living here as a resident and just drawing off the money to live are there any tax implications and if so what are t...

Re: Torrox pueblo property

Unfortunately the buses are infrequent and the return service from the costa stops arouund 20.30-21.00. To clarify, none of the Torrox areas are particularly bad places to live but having experienced 6 months there I would still say that one would need some form of motorised transport, even a scoote...

Re: Torrox pueblo property

The large parking lot is situated at the bottom of the village behind the police station and there is a steep hill to walk up if you live in the main part of the village, no good if you have to carry shopping ! The scrubland areas you speak of are all situated on the very outskirts of the village, a...

Re: Amateur radio ham
