Re: Why Brexit is Right

When Caroline set up this forum she asked "Please keep it CIVIL and ON TOPIC regarding updates/ news / concerns on British living / travelling in the EU." I suggest that if you can't do that, BarryfromWatford, we might be better off without you here.

Re: How to become a greek resident

The IKA office at Agios Nikolaos didn't need a translation. It was all perfectly straightforward. We gave them the form along with the usual passport copies etc. They also wanted proof that our tax affairs were in order.

Popi and Yiannis are the vets in Agios Nikolaos who dealt with my dog's passport, vaccinations etc. when we travelled around Europe. They are very conscientious with the paperwork. Telephone 2841 100303

Re: IKA Renewal Heads Up

Can anyone advise the procedure when one has IKA health cover through the S1 form, but has worked for a few hours a week last season (for the first time ever in Greece), paying the appropriate IKA contributions? Any additional paperwork that is required, declaration from accountant etc?

UK Flag

Does anyone know where I can buy a Union Flag / Union Jack in the Agios Nikolaos / Malia / Hersonnisos area? Approximately 1.00m - 0.50m. Thanks in advance.

Re: New tax allowance - UK

I received an email fom HMRC over a year ago asking if I would like to register for this. I wondered if it was a scam at first but it proved not to be. Maybe they started with people registered for self-assessment.
