One thing of no use when calculating living costs at the moment but may be by the end of the year, is the business of keeping receipts for the taxman. At least one can work out the cost of food and drink from there. Utilities are easy of course. My initial reaction to the exercise of keeping receipt...

According to a local here, the Civil Service employees are already effectively paying that way. At least, their tax is deducted at source although I don't know how they arrive at how much to deduct. The main culprits appear to be the self-employed and private sector workers. Lots been written on thi...

It is just possible that KEP, the Citizens Advice Service (multilingual) can help with your queries. From Greece, call 1564. If in Chania already, visit them on the ground level to the right hand side of the courthouse. They are extremely helpful and may just be able to answer some of your questions...

someone on another forum pointed out rightly that the letter with the card referred to NHS Services and not NHS Treatment. Not sure I understand the difference though! One of the services has to be the ability to go to a GP or a Hospital, to get treatment? Enlightenment sought.

When our new EHIC arrived, I was amazed to see in the covering letter that the card would not include NHS treatment in the UK; so I queried that. Here is the response - Excellent news! "Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding your European Health Insurance card (EHIC). Please accept my since...
