Re: Capital Control Issues

As you say Warwick, capital gains tax was introduced on property from 2014, I, potentially, was going to be hit with it if I had sold my house (a second home) in Crete then. Subsequently, it was suspended fairly quickly I seem to remember, and as far as I know that situation remains the same. I woul...

Re: Bonfires

Can anybody confirm the dates on Crete when it is allowed to have bonfires, think its excluded 1st May to 31st October? Certainly these dates in Rethymnon area. I had a problem last year, in May, with a neighbour who had cleared an access road to land directly below my fifteen foot retaining wall a...

Re: Taverna Bar Kalamies?

From her apartments, if your friend walks back along the beach road in the direction of Heraklion, passing the road junction with Levantes Restaurant on the corner, it is on the opposite side of the road to the Club Marmara Hotel. Continuing further along past the Dias Hotel, across the road, she wi...

Re: Capital Controls.

I was told by a friend last night that the withdrawal limit is completely different if you have transferred money into Greece from outside. Apparently you can draw out up to 30 % of the money transferred into Greece each week in addition to the €420. I was certainly allowed to do this by Eurobank i...

Re: Travel Insurance - Europe only, Annual.

Sorry, should have added I am UK resident. Problems I have had with them were due to staff not knowing what they were doing, but they have got a pretty bad record if you look them up online. Neighbours over here are with Staysure, but have not needed to claim so far. I am considering a change to the...

Re: Travel Insurance - Europe only, Annual.

Re the company recommended by Scooby above. I have been with them over four years. I would advise caution in using them and read their terms and conditions very thoroughly before going with them. At the present time I am considering a change of provider, but really wonder when they have eventually p...

Re: Residence Permit ??

Just bought a car from a company in Heraklion. I spend about eighteen weeks each year here and therefore am non resident. Warwick is right,to enable the purchase I had to obtain a certificate of residence to confirm I live in the EU. This was easily obtained at the Police Immigration office in Rethy...

Re: URGENT - YOUR TAX RETURN

My apologies Carol, as you say, I should have been aware that my comment could be misconstrued. As Elaine said, I did have in mind the wealthy sector of Greek society who seem to get away with non payment of taxes on a regular basis and can often evade payment and remain within the law. Surely now i...

Re: URGENT - YOUR TAX RETURN

At my accountants yesterday evening, and not good news for Holiday home owners! The property tax is to be announced - probably September. Pool tax will again be charged at 5%,with a 2%discount for full and prompt payment. The iniquitous 'Imputed Income' has again been resurrected for houses, swimmin...

Re: DVLA changes affecting car hire

After all this discussion, just wondering where I will stand! Never had a plastic licence - never saw the need to get one - so still using my very old green printed one. It has not been queried here in the past, or even checked for endorsements etc.. I expect I shall find out in August when I return...
