Re: Transferwise back to the UK

Yes, Nat West were relaxed about the whole business. We phoned our NBG branch and they said the max transfer was 10k but with no daily limit on the number of transfers. A little weird, if you ask me, but that's what we were told.

Re: Transferwise back to the UK

Thanks KIlkis. Yes, when I first used Transferwise the transfer was held up for a few days while I proved i.d. and ownership of the NBG account, but they said I was now flagged as 'legit'.

Transferwise back to the UK

Does anyone have experience in transferring large sums of money from NBG back to a UK account? We're using Transferwise to ship the proceeds of our house sale back to Blighty, but it suggested that banks can get snotty about huge transfers so I lef the first transfer at 10k. Rather than have to deal...

Re: Marital Status

We had a ridiculous experience when trying to confirm our marital status for E1 purposes (long story). We were asked by the local tax office for a copy of the original UK licence with apostile stamp, all officially translated. The mad woman at the local tax office took one look at 'bachelor' and 'sp...

Re: BEWARE TAP penalty for plastic shed

From what I have seen with friends who have sold, the "drip feed" effect is ubiquitous in the property market. Notaries must know at the start of the process what they are going to need? OK, there could be the odd surprise but not everything? Warwick Well, the notary is appointed by the b...

Re: BEWARE TAP penalty for plastic shed

My property is for sale so I have recently had it legalised, the new topograph added 4 sqm. to my property size. I had to inform my accountant who adjusted my E9 back over 5 years. I am currently selling the house so have applied also for the compulsory Energy Efficiency Certificate from my Politic...

Re: Paying E1 online

I'm not sure why it has taken you 5 years, Glenn. I can understand that it can take 5 years to find a buyer but once you have a buyer I don't know why it should take such a long time to complete the sale. I know people who had massive legal problems with their property but even then, once they had ...

Re: Paying E1 online

I know at one point they changed how they referred to the tax year but I can't remember when exactly they did it. Originally the tax year quoted was the year you made the return so the income was for the previous year, i.e the return for income received in 2011 was submitted in 2012 and the E Form ...

Re: Paying E1 online

On Alpha Bank they come under the same heading: "Assessed Tax Dues (Income Tax, EN.F.I.A. etc)". I can't guarantee its the same for NBG. I would have thought if it was the wrong form the payment code probably wouldn't be accepted. Also I don't know that for sure. Warwick Thanks. Seems abo...

Paying E1 online

NBG e-banking in this case. We have an E1 to pay (yes, it's late) but it's not clear which category of payments I should use on the NBG system. 'Public authorities/Assessed debts' seems right, but it says (property tax) after that, and this isn't my ENFIA. I could swear I've done this before and per...

Re: Taxisnet access

I think Error 403 is "Forbidden Access" so it is more likely to be something wrong with your login details? Are you sure you have the correct user name and password? An example of the sort of problem that can occur. A friend asked her accountant for her TaxisNET login details so she could...

Taxisnet access

We have some issues with an old (2016) E1 tax return, so we thought we'd log in ourselves, for the first time ever, and have a look. Tried a number of times now, but keep getting error 403. Could this be simply because it's overloaded with Enfia applications? We'll try out of hours, but just wonderi...

Re: E-paravolo - how to pay?

There is no payment code on the form. There are various 'codes' on it, my postcode, my IBAN in case of a refund, my mobile number and my AFM. That's it. No e-banking 3-part code. Nada. The authority in this case is the Athens office in charge of issuing CITES certificates for the export of certain a...

Yes Jean, you can pay at ELTA post offices. A google translation from page 13 of the guide: ... I honestly don't know what could be easier than walking up to a counter, handing the person behind the counter a piece of paper and some cash and getting the paper, duly receipted, handed back.

Re: E-paravolo - how to pay?

While I agree that the systems here are extremely bureaucratic and highly inefficient the vast majority of the people I have met in having to deal with those systems have been friendly and helpful. The people you deal with are not the ones who designed the system. They can do nothing about the syst...
