Re: Realistic Driving Costs

I hope Ladyt25 you have residents permits as with Brexit possibly on the way you could get caught in the 90/180 day rule. This means you can only stay 90 days in any 180 day period in the EU if you do not have the necessary permit. I have heard of a few people who used to drive to Europe for the win...

Re: Cancelling bank direct debit

Yes I use the same bank and cancelled my direct debit with DEH last week. Go to the bank and pick one of the agents, not the cashiers and after a few forms and signings it was job done. Not at all Greek as it was so simple.

Re: Life Certificate

Kep offices have been told not to confirm details on requests for pensions etc for non Greeks. They pointed to a poster on the wall confirming this, so they told me, could not argue as it was in Greek. Possible Greek logic........... Try you accountant as they are normally very helpfull.

Re: Contact Details for a Taverna

I would not bother as a friend booked a table for this week but found it closed and a note saying it may open sometime in the future.
Do not hold your breath.

Re: Hearing aids

I also recently went down the investigation route for hearing aid supplies. What was quoted here was nearly double what I could get the same devices for in the UK. Found Boots very good and they may not be the very cheapest but having explained where I resided I was given enough spare parts to last ...

They do not arrive and having tried in the Vodafone shop to be told there is nothing wrong, we have sent complaints to both the Greek Vodafone help desk and also to the UK Vodafone help desk.. It appears ...

Re: Pensions

If it sounds too good to be true then it is and I would not go anywhere near it. Heard that many people been ripped off either by the new fund or the UK tax authorities taking their share of your pot when it leaves it current keeper.

Re: E1 tax submission - prove you're married??

Sorry GlennB but Kilkis is correct in what he has written as we have also checked with our accountant and he confirms we legally can be residents here and still be taxed in the UK. We can be here legally for health or extended tourist reasons and that is what we are happy to do. Should have got a be...

Re: New residency rules post Brexit - reciprocity in Greece

The problem which appears not to be mentioned is unique to Greece. We have been permanent residents here since 2007 but for tax purposes we pay tax in the UK as all money/pensions are generated from the UK. EU residents in the UK pay tax there so it is easy to prove how long they have been resident ...
