Re: Property Register declaration

If there are 5,000 properties that need to be registered (probably a *huge* underestimate), and assuming 2 hrs per application, and assuming a 40-hour week for the single soul currently at that office, I make that 250 weeks of work. This seems to be true in our city to get the ποστοποιήτικο μεταγρά...

Re: Vehicle Import

...And the consulate as well as all Greek authorities want a certificate from your former home country, that you deregistered and don't have any address there anymore... De-register with whom? The UK government has no such register. How can you get a certificate showing that you have de-registered ...

Re: Vehicle Import

And you must deregister from the UK, so you won't be able to keep an UK address... As Warwick says, this should not be the case ... I understand we need to be quick; we will return in February and hope to resolve it via the Consulate. What will be required of us when we visit them? Oh yes, believe ...

Re: Vehicle Import

And you must deregister from the UK, so you won't be able to keep an UK address. As the process via the consulate is only possible for EU states you also need to be quick.

Re: Internet connection for visitors

If they have a mobile phone contract in another EU country it might be cheaper to get an additional monthly package and even a second SIM card.

I wonder how much water could be saved if leaks were fixed immediately :roll:

@ Clio - my laptop always assumes I'm in Germany while in Greece. But when I'm in Germany I suddenly get all notifications for Greek sites and even in Greek :P

Re: online bill pay

...My mother checked with the bank and they told her that I can't have the entoli sent from someone else's account... Then house is in her name so payments with entoli have to be done from her account/in her name. Only when using online banking you can pay from any account you want. At least that's...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

The new EU driving licences , issued in any EU country after 2013, should be accepted due to some new EU law but even with those the Greek state tells you to change them. Eh? Does that mean that my Greek licence which was renewed last in 2016 has to be renewed again before the due date in 2019? Hah...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

Yes, same happened to my husband last year and after searching the internet I found out that they changed the law in 2013. Before then driving licences from another EU country were accepted but since 2013 you need to get a driving licence from the country your staying when the stay exceeds 6 months ...

Re: IKA INFO FOR THE BUILDERS

. You cannot transfer without providing the IKA paperwork. Warwick That's what we thought too, but..... ( we're in Greece :mrgreen: , so no rule without exceptions) We do have permanent electricty for years now and still fight with IKA over the payment which wasn't made by the builder. Even after w...

Re: Electronic transactions’ lottery - Check if you've won!

I am still wondering how to check it.
As a married couple you make the tax report usually under the AFM of the husband and therefor have only a taxisnet account for that AFM.
So would I need a login also for the other AFM ?

Re: Has anyone actually imported a car on moving over

Yes, it's worth it :) BUT : to import that car with only a small fee you need a lot of paperwork from the Greek embassy first and you need to have a notice of departure from your country when coming here. If you need to stay registered at your home country for some reason it's usually better to forg...

Re: Internet Problems

I had the same problem for many weeks this year, the internet would go on and off. All lines were checked, the router reset...nothing helped. And then suddenly all was back to normally working. So my guess is, that OTE was working on the lines somewhere and either there were too few lines left to ha...

Re: new laws on tax (e1, e9, ENFIA) - advice?

Thanks Andrew, I understand the distinction of e1 and e9, and for landlord they are obviously linked. I have checked tax laws (I understand it's 11% and/or less for officially unemployed), plus with greek accountant about up-to-date. I have a lawyer guiding me about my own e1, since it is required ...

Re: Re-registering cars from anothe country in Crete

The red plates you have seen where surely not from imported cars - there are very few on the island. Families with at least 3(?) children were eligible for the net price (wihtout VAT) when buying a car and therefore have red plates. Warwick is right, with a self imported car you can't sell it for at...
