Re: The Will of the People

Actually the EU in the form of the hated Commission were the ones who were the most supportive of Greece and always wanted to compromise. It was the Eurogroup, i.e. the finance ministers of the member states, especially Germany, who were vindictive. The ECB were also hard, because the Bundesbank al...

Re: Property Register declaration

...And of course, your accountant will charge for his time..... Andrew That does depend a bit on your relationship with your accountant and what exactly he needs to do. Mine tends to charge a fixed annual fee and only charges extra if there is some major extra work to do. I have only been charged e...

Re: Property Register declaration

Just to cheer everybody up. Apparently there is a charge for every property registered, which as Warwick pointed out will be any and all types of property. The amount will be determined based on the details submitted. And of course, your accountant will charge for his time.....

Re: Vodafone SMS

I'm told by family in the UK that they have a problem with Vodafone network there. Trying to find out more. Is this the cause or just coincidence?

Re: Vodafone SMS

Yes, mine is also a dual sim model, I will just have to use the giffgaff sim for the UK txts. You may have a texts package that means there is no difference, but for those that don't, Vodafone's text charges to UK are higher than some UK networks, so it's always better to use the UK SIM, as I recen...

Re: Windows 10 Sleep Problem

Ahh, Windows 10...... My moan is that since September, my desktop PC will not power off. I tell it to shut down from the Start menu, it goes through the full shutdown process but then instantly reboots just before what would have been the final switch off. I have to watch it reach that point then hi...

Re: Face Card

Called International Destination Packs . €6.35 per month for 400 minutes to landlines and 100 minutes to mobiles in the UK. It excludes premium rate numbers as you would expect.

Re: Face Card

Another option that avoids anything too technical is to buy Cosmote's (OTE's) International Free Call package. It's probably not called exactly that, I can't remember, and clearly it's not actually free. For a fixed monthly fee, around 10 euros I think, you can call any landline in the UK from your ...

Re: Currency Index

Looking back over my last five transactions Carolina three have reached my Eurobank account on the same day. The other two the following day. It depends on the time you start the transfer. An early morning transfer will go the same day. After 12 noon on the day of request means the money will proba...
