We provided him with a copy of the certificate and he arranged translation through a lawyer, we were charged 30 euro. We had to go up to the tax office to sign a paper and by the time we got back to the accountants office he could see on his computer that records were updated and he could proceed with the tax return.

Worth a shot, though the whole saga at some point involved getting our signatures verified and stamped by KEP. Our local KEP lady is also very keen to help Brits as she's lined up for a serious English exam in the winter and likes to practice her spoken English.
Am a bit unsure here if we are talking people paying taxes who are tax resident in Greece, or (the alleged majority of expats) those who are still tax resident in the UK and to whom the accountants tend to turn a (possibly semi-legal) blind eye? Bob.

If you have lived here 9 years, have no income in Greece and were registered as tax resident here from the beginning then you have a pretty poor accountant. The 183 day rule was only introduced about 4 years ago. Before that, under Greek tax law you could remain tax resident where your income arose and most ex-pats were registered as non-tax resident completely legally on that basis.
