Re: Tax resident in Greece < 183 days ?

As I understand it, you can drive a car in Greece which is registered in any other country, for up to six months in a year, but the car must then be out of Greece for the other six months. In other words, you can't simply drive into Albania or get the ferry to Italy for a few days. I don't think it ...

Re: Vehicle Circualtion Tax - A Dire Warning

I still can't follow the logic of removing the plates if it is not to save circulation tax. What about all the hire cars -- without plates on --parked up in compounds awaiting the new season? Is that not a way for the owners to save tax, and if not, what's the point of removing them in the first pla...

Re: Mattress disposal Crete .

Tim, I think the place Jeff is referring to is off to the right on the straight new bit of road about 1k before you get to the Dionysos Village development (heading towards Palaokastro and Vai). I've not been up there but you can sometimes see palls of smoke and dust coming from the site as you head...

Re: Mattress disposal Crete .

Unfortunately this is why you see so many old mattresses and other detritus dumped over the side of the roads. However, the bin lorries WILL collect them if they are left next to the green bins -- maybe not immediately -- but they should go eventually. If possible, fold the mattress and bind it with...

Re: Here comes the Dollar

I can't find anything in your comments to disagree with, Danny, I was just pointing out the reasoning behind his appointment! (Warwick is right, of course, Farage is still being paid by the institution he despises, but by "public office" I was thinking more of government office.)

Re: Here comes the Dollar

It's quite simple really, Danny. You keep your friends close but your enemies closer. By appointing Johnson, Davis and Fox to key government positions, Theresa May has concluded that it's better to have them pi**ing OUT of the tent than into it. In effect, she said to them: You campaigned for it, so...

Re: Here comes the Dollar

Well, even for the Mail, this is as about as bonkers as it gets, Bob. Can you really imagine the US "sharing" the dollar with a country so deeply in debt?

Re: New tax allowance - UK

Call me a cynic, but it's also a classic example of HMRC/the government dangling a little carrot to obtain more information about people who might otherwise be below their radar. Information is power. More information on people = more power over people's lives.
