Re: What`s the best way to get rid of Oleander?

Just ask for "Round Up". Every Greek knows what that is. Personally I'd rather not know, but it's obviously very effective: I've seen the results of an application a number of times, and it looks like the roots don't stand a chance.

Re: EHIC CARD LOST

Mine was something like two years out of date when I happened to check. I asked for a new one by phone, with some trepidation because I had no idea if the system was still the same, or if I'd have to fill in forms. A pleasant and helpful operative took my details and said the new card would be sent ...

Re: What are "skneepa"?

Σκνίπα. Gnats or midges, says the dictionary - though I think in English those are two slightly different things, and the gnat is not such a nuisance. The σκνίπα though is definitely a first cousin to the legendary Scottish Highland midge.

Re: Could this be true?

I was writing from personal experience, Warwick. Textbooks are useful but they don’t always tell you about what happens on the ground. When my husband died the notary complained about all the work that would have to be done because he hadn’t left a Greek will. Our three sons would have to read, sign...

Re: Could this be true?

If you are married, jointly own a property, have not made a will and one of you dies, the Greek law says that the survivor inherits half of the property. The other half is divided between any children of the marriage. Those children must then take a Greek tax number and have to submit Greek tax retu...

Re: ENFIA Property Tax online now

As far as I'm concerned, chance would be a fine thing to learn about my ENFIA liability in any language. No joy on getting into the site. "Me neither", said my accountant cheerfully. "It was just the same last year. It does 't occur to anyone that as soon as the information is availab...

Re: ENFIA 2019 Update

It’s very rare that once governments introduce a tax (and people get used to being the status quo) it is taken away in the future. Rare but not unheard of. OK it took some some 150 years to get rid of, so hardly a temporary tax, but the curtain did come down eventually on the the English Window Tax.
