Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

If you live or work permanently in Greece you should be resident or resident for tax purposes in Greece, there is no No Man's land, but because of the loopholes used by Accountants discussed on this forum previously people can still live here full time and be tax resident in the UK, I personally don...

Re: Residence permits.

I went to the KEP office in Agios Nikolaos first regarding the license but was sent to the town hall, I'm nowhere near 80 but the woman processing the paperwork insisted on a paper from the doctor and optician! Yes the lawyer was for the translation of licence to Greek and to certify copies of passp...

Re: Residence permits.

I'm in the process of getting the permanent resident certificate ( I will hopefully collect from the police station tomorrow) and exchanging my driving licence to a Greek one, getting the permit is certainly easier than the license .. next thing on list for license is the optician, so far it's been ...

Re: Residence permits.

I'd thought about getting a permanent one a while ago but thought there's no point as after Brexit it won't be valid as it's for EU nationals ...but now if it will make the process easier post Brexit then I'll get one, I'm in process of changing my driving licence so a bit more hassle won't be too b...

Re: Car tax for 2018

Filippos, I don't do online banking, never have, so for me nipping in the bank at the start of December when it's quiet is no big deal, and it's not that cold :) :)

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

Sorry, should have said UK certificates In telephone conversation with accountant he asked for Greek bank account number to check my eligibility on the computer system so when he mentioned bank interest I assumed he meant my Greek account, not the amount of interest entered on my tax return from cer...

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

It's the interest from savings that are on the certificates of interest that is entered on tax return, over 81 euro and you miss out

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

I was thinking it was generous, I kept money here from a house sale but it was a village house not a 2 million euro villa .. someone has probably done a typo and it should have been 8.50 not 85 !

Yes I was surprised that amount of interest was one of the conditions, seems a bit odd

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

I declare Greek earnings and provide certificates of interest for the tax authority, id assumed that the money I've transferred to Greece from UK must have counted as income as I didn't qualify for the dividend but that's been confirmed it doesn't, my accountant asks for the information but it doesn...

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

I'm tax resident and declare worldwide income, wages and money transferred into Greece, I need to clarify it again with Accountant, I transferred more than 9000 over so thought that's reason for not being eligible, I'll speak to him again :)

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

Things were lost in translation :) I thought the accountant meant amount of money in bank not annual income, I don't qualify as even tho my income is lower than 9000 euro , money transferred from UK counts as income which puts me over that threshold

Re: ALERT for Greek Tax Residents - Pay Out

Our Accountant entered our details onto the system and 9000 came up, maybe it's different depending on your own circumstances I don't know

Re: Car tax for 2018

If you don't do online banking or don't have access to a printer, if you have the green document you received when buying the car you can take it to a bank and pay , it has reg number and tax number that's needed. Eurobank charge 1.50 euro not sure about other banks but it's easier for me to do it t...
