Not sure as there have been quite a lot of changes recently, my boss has been hit today with a tax demand for the land he is not building on as he "may" sometime in the future use it as agricultural land, but he already paid the tax on the land when he bought it ?? So far his lawyer, accou...

cars

The cost I believe is between 50 - 7- euro depending on age and type of fuel as they also have to do the emission tests, best bet is go along to a testing station and book in they will then advise you on whether or not you are due for testing.

cretan adventure

Well all I can say is we used a company from north London and everything arrived on time fully intact and no dramas with customs etc, also 3-4 people have used the same company with no probs, so don't worry about what could go wrong worry about what has gone wrong when it appens.

Banking

When we moved here 3 years ago we used our UK bank HSBC and they provided us with a personal banker, who for no fee would move our money from the UK to Nat bank of Greece at best rates.

boats

Boaters and fisherpeople

As an ex firefighter my thoughts go out to the family and colleages of those 3 lads who perished and my hopes that the injured firefighter will make good recovery as the burns he suffered will be with him for the rest of his life. I also hope the idiots who caused this tragedy will be found and seve...
