Re: Transferring funds, and pink slips

I have to download the transfer document for each transaction as I transfer funds UK to Greece, (via Germany) with TransferWise. On handing them over to Eurobank I get the pink slips with no problem.

Re: Transferring funds, and pink slips

I too have always obtained 'pink slips'(one sheet on white paper) from my bank who now also require the a copy of the TransferWise transaction document(s) before they will issue it, to enable my accountant to complete my tax returns. Knowing the way the regulations change here I have also continued ...

Re: Green

Take a look at the postings on You Tube. There are some horrendous sights on the National Highway and with bridges collapsing left right and centre. Devastation all round the local demos is still trying to sort road access and bridge collapses out. Look under Flooding In Rethymnon 2019 for a good se...

Re: Selling and how to get the funds to the UK?

Rather than transfer the funds into Greece the buyers transferred the funds directly from their bank in another EU country directly to the seller's bank in the UK. I don't know the details but I think a certain amount was transferred into Greece, e.g. the deposit, but that was mostly used to pay fe...

Re: rent or buy?

CGT in Greece is still under suspension at present. If it were still in existence I would have been able to offset it after payment against any UK liability. The rates quoted when it was first introduced were more favourable than those in UK which would have been useful!

Re: rent or buy?

That's a good point Warwick! One I had not considered, however, I don't think the Revenue will look at it in the same light though I will certainly look into it. At the time I made the final and largest payment for the house the rate was 1.50€ to the pound. Needless to say I am watching the fluctuat...

Re: rent or buy?

I am now at the final stages of selling my beautiful home on Crete. I was in the fortunate position of buying it as a second home 15 years ago, off plan, as a cash buyer. The costs then were fully explained to me. I have used it over the years as I wished, never having rented it out, though my nephe...
