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 ...

We understood he was due to finish at the end of March but he was granted continual work to the end of April and from then on we would have to ...

Re: VODAPHONE MYSTERY

We have also been having problems sending texts to a UK EE phone from our Vodafone Greek phone. 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 ...

Could any body please give me a clue how to set up access into my account with DEH so I can view the current account statement.

Timber or Plastic Decking.

Does anybody have any experience of a contractor who can design and install exterior decking. We have an section of the garden that only looks good in the spring so we need to change it to decking and be able to make use of it all year round.

Recommendations much appreciated.

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. Be very careful and certainly keep it away from the euro as an inv...

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 ...

Re: Film On

Anything that uses the Filmon platform seems to be unavailable now. Could be right as I reinstalled watchallchannels again and it is now using a different platform but as of yesterday it was working fine with no problems. Probably will not watch UK TV this way again as now using uncapped satellite ...

Re: Film On

Filmon has been useless for months so we have been watching Brit TV on http://www.watchallchannels.com Found this some time ago and had no problems. Uses the Filmon platform and there are no adverts which is a great advantage as the adverts used to knock the programme off air and when you reconnect ...

Re: LIVE FACEBOOK Q & A

I discovered yesterday, through a conversation with a friend, that some (perhaps all?) accountants are registering their clients as non-tax resident in Greece by the simple expedient of stating that they are resident in Greece for less than 183 days per year. While we still have no idea what the ou...

Re: electricity without building permit

Our neighbours had a barn and put pigs in the barn for a few months and then got electric installed. A few weeks later the pigs went and slowly the barn changed into a house and hey presto! they have an illegal with electric supply fitted.

Who said they were Greek, you are right.
