Re: Registration certificate and adequate funds

I have been living in Crete for 5 months now. I have my tax number and my health card. I live in rented accommodation and will remain so and I was able to complete my car purchase needing only my tax number and passport. So, my question is, what do I need a Residence Permit for? Am I required to obt...

I am seeing advertisements for Xmas dinners/events and things like that which have to be booked in advance but it seems a bit awkward to be sitting in a taverna alone surrounded b...

Re: Netflix

Thanks both. Loretta9, please tell me more about your set up. Is it only available on a Chromebook (I have a recent Macbook) and will the Chromecast
work on other computers? If so, what is it and how do I get one?

Wanted Coffee Machine

Does anyone know where I could find a good quality (like Gaggia) coffee machine, close to Chania if possible, but anywhere on Crete really.

Thanks

Re: UK Pension/ Income Tax in Greece

Thanks Kiklis, very helpful. I am assuming that I would not have a choice about becoming "tax resident" if I live full time in Crete and have no UK property. Is there a time limit on how long I could be there without becoming tax resident? My only income will be UK pension but I do have so...

UK Pension/ Income Tax in Greece

I am emigrating to Crete this Autumn, with my UK State Pension paid into a Greek Bank account. I have heard that there is no tax free allowance, as there is in UK, and that I will be paying tax at 22% on the total amount of pension I receive. Is this so?

Thanks
