I was very s...

Re: Half Litre Pyrex Measuring Jug

Thanks everyone. It looks as if my first impression was correct and that they are not available in Crete. I will bring one back from the UK, although a friend? did suggest that I make my fortune and import loads of them if they are so scarce! There are three options, metal, plastic or glass (Pyrex),...

Re: Half Litre Pyrex Measuring Jug

Thanks for the info re- Lidl, but I'm still looking for a 500ml jug, so any news on one of these would be welcome.

Re: Half Litre Pyrex Measuring Jug

Thanks filippos, I'll try those. But no definite sightings yet. I was hoping to avoid a long search :D

Half Litre Pyrex Measuring Jug

Where abouts in the Apokoronas or Chania area can I buy a half litre Pyrex measuring jug. I have seen other Pyrex (or similar) items but never a measuring jug. All sensible suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance

Re: Tax Resident or 365 Day Tourist in Perpetuity

As usual Warwick a good summary. However the question I would ask (and I'm not expecting an answer) is :- If the Greek Tax authorities do decide to apply the 183 day rule with vigour, so those expats who are currently not tax resident in Greece but are here for more than 183 days, suddenly find them...

Re: A Cautionary Tale

Yes Warwick, this more or less agrees with what my accountant told me today. Property tax was introduced in 2006 and ran until 2010. Not many people paid it because their house was below the threshold. From 2010 to 2013 it was collected as we all remember via the Electricity Bill. From 2014 until th...

Re: A Cautionary Tale

I haven't seen my accountant yet, but property tax from 2008, was part of the garbled answer I got when we originally spoke on the phone. Like Warwick I didn't understand this as 'property tax' didn't exist in 2008. When it was first introduced it was collected as you recall on the Electricity Bills...

A Cautionary Tale

I returned to Crete in early April having spent some time back in the UK. Two days after my return I visited my bank to have my book account brought up to date. I use the account to pay my Electricity Bill by direct debit. I handed over my book and the cashier accessed my account on her computer. “Y...

Re: Lawyer - anybody knows him?

As usual Warwick you do a lot of research before contributing to this board, but no research can tell us what we will get for our houses in the unlikely event that after Brexit we are forced to leave Crete. We only know that the resulting fire sale will produce significantly lower prices than are cu...

Re: No Water

Talking about water storage tanks, my cousin who lives in Western Australia isn't on what they call 'scheme water' and like many other people collects the water off the large steel roof which covers their single storey house and veranda. This goes into a very large tank. This lasts a family of 4 for...

Re: Bagpipe Player Wanted

If I suggest you just strangle a cat then both the animal lovers and the bagpipe lovers will be after me, so perhaps I'd better not.
