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...

Re: DELPASO Car Hire – A cautionary tale.

Oh, how familiar this sounds ! We were 'done' by Delpaso several years ago (I think I posted about it at the time). With us, it was a tiny scratch along the near side - the kind you get whe brushing past a hedge or similar. Like you, we collected at night under the floodlit canopy, so couldn't fully...

Re: Modelo 210 - Late Payment

A timely post, as I am about to finally make my 210 payment, late. I no longer have a digital certificate, but I'm hoping to make the payment online thro' my Spanish bank as in previous years.
I also need to pay my IBI for 2019 - does anyone know their bank details ?

Reputable gestor in the Archidona/Antequera area

We finally have a serious buyer for our casa :) & I urgently need a gestor who can swiftly (well, as is possible in Spain !) register a swimming pool.
All suggestions gratefully received

Paying Renta & IBI

Is it possible to make payments direct to either or both of these ? If so, does anyone know the bank details needed ? I have both bills to pay, but no funds in my Spanish bank account, so my step daughter has said she will make the payments. I'm not sure how that would work with regards to the Renta ?
