Re: Car tax for 2018

Quote from an email sent out by my accountant to all his customers: In case of co-ownership the car tax bill will be issued in all of the names with the same full amount of tax. Only one of the co-owners must pay the car tax in full. So no, just print out the bill using one owners information, it do...

Re: Greece strikes, other potential disruptions & Bank Holidays

Which link? The only link I posted was to the Nordic Library document for Norway. If you bother to read this document you will find the following statement: "In the EU , people falling below 60% of median income are said to be at-risk-of poverty." Note the terms "EU" and "be...

Re: Renewing UK Driving licence

DVLA will only renew your UK licence if you provide a UK address. EU Legislation only allows licensing authorities to issue licences to people who live in their jurisdiction. I practise it doesn't have to be your address. You could use a relative or friend who is prepared to take delivery and forwar...

Re: Paying for Renovations

I got confirmation today that the rules on opening a bank account, provided you don't already have one, and withdrawing 100% of money deposited from abroad are now in force.

Re: Greece strikes, other potential disruptions & Bank Holidays

The information I have today, from a normally reliable source, is that at the moment this law is only a provision. The creditors are insisting that it is voted through parliament and placed on the statue books but the cut will only be implemented if the government fails to meet the fiscal targets it...

Re: Firefox Quantum

I'm not talking about videos in the sense of a film or a TV programme. I mean the sort of video clips you get on many web pages illustrating something, such as a news story on the BBC web site or a product on a company web site. They might be a few seconds or a few minutes long. Prior to the updates...

Re: Greece strikes, other potential disruptions & Bank Holidays

Read what it says, Mouche:

    This indicator shows the total income of a household, in the Nordic region, in euro after tax and other deductions that is available for spending or saving, divided by the number of household members converted into equivalised adults;

My emphasis in red.

Re: Firefox Quantum

I don't use it directly, I prefer VLC, but for some reason some videos on web pages wouldn't play without it while others would. Installing it seemed the easiest solution rather than spend hours trying to track down the problem and find an alternative solution.

Re: Greece strikes, other potential disruptions & Bank Holidays

You are conflating two different statistics. ALL the figures I quoted are per-capita not per household. Income tax, and associated tax free level which the discussion is about, is determined by individual income not by household income. It is important therefore to use individual values for all othe...

Re: Its here ! The Big Christmas Fayre.This Sunday, 3rd December

For anybody coming on the National Highway from the Chania direction it is probably quicker to go past the junction with the Vrysses - Georgioupoli old road. After about 300 m there is a small parking area with a café called To Steki, I think, on the right hand side. There is a small road off to the...

Re: Firefox Quantum

Possibly. Do you know when your update was installed, Filippos? Mine was on ‎19/‎11/‎2017.

I also installed The Feature Pack for Windows (KB4039813) on 20/11/2017, in order to get the Media Player, so perhaps that made the change not the 1709 update?

Re: Greece strikes, other potential disruptions & Bank Holidays

In the UK the personal allowance is £11,500, slightly less than €13,000 at today's exchange rate. Official poverty level is classed as about £15,000, slightly less than €17,000. Again the allowance is less than the poverty level. I don't understand the logic. You are classed as living in poverty but...

Re: Greece strikes, other potential disruptions & Bank Holidays

The stone must be getting pretty anaemic by now? I understood that the poverty line in Greece stood at €7,178. If they drop the tax free threshold to €5,681 then they are taxing people who are officially living in poverty.

Re: Firefox Quantum

Strange. Before the update my language preferences only contained English UK and Greek. I normally toggle between these using alt-shift. I did that today and found that I had the English US keyboard, i.e. shift-2 gives @ not ". When I then looked at the preferences it had English UK, Greek and ...
