Services Available Explanation of power cuts.

Though I do think this has been covered in past posts on Digamextra.

My original thoughts would have been first port of call would be telephone an electrician. Unless D.I.Y

Moving forward!!

The first outage could be a general power cut from electric company. Or a loose connection. You could ask the other tenants in apartment block if they have same problem as it is likely one of them will have same problem if shared phase supply.

The other switch I am presuming is the RCCD (residual circuit current device). If you are having nuisance tripping it could be a faulty Rccd

Over sensitive and can be tested for time perimeters with a meter all electricians should have. Pressing the test button does not mean its operation is correct it means it is not jammed.  If the rccd is satisfactory it is serving you well protecting  life, injury and property from fire.

An example: Appliance breaking down with fault neutral to earth.

Fridge / Freezer, washing machine, electric hob, oven elements, water heater.

from my experience the first thing I would look at , if you have a water heater and have access look to see if there are any signs of water marks in the cover housing. Slight seeping of water would indicate element corrosion in the housing and moisture over the connection will cause tripping. Remove power to water heater first via local isolation.

The list is endless and can at times be very time consuming if unlucky even after basic elimination but it is a start that some householders may wish to try.

If it cannot be resolved call an electrician. It is possible some wiring in the installation has a fault which can be visually inspected and tested with insulation test meter. I have known sockets to burn out caused by loose connections causing more heat transfer to connections.  especially this time of year as people are using more electric heaters that can overload circuits that may have been compromised by being bodged in the past by upgrading the circuit breaker to stop circuit breakers tripping, ignorant of the fact that  the cable in the installation is getting hotter and hotter to melting point that you cannot even pull a new cable in original conduit because it has stuck.

Enough said I am sure other sparks will share their horror stories. on this topic !!

Hope you don’t mind me taking this opportunity which I think is relevant. An observation after living here 9 years. That I have not seen any evidence of any agents be it holiday letting or estate agents or in the private sector requesting inspection or testing of business or dwelling for electrical safety inspection be it basic or comprehensive. It seems if its working it must be safe ?

To add that any reputable electrician is not there to inflate costs by adding work but to advise which course of action you may wish to take if safety is compromised.

If you are interested in my services contact me. or get advice from other local electricians.

Carina has cheeses you’ll crave for.

Carmen will make your nails look stunningly beautiful.

Christmas jams and chutneys, knitted scarves and babies bootees all from Nia.

Mercedes has very special gluten and lactose-free cakes and biscuits. Yummy and healthy.

Natural and organic soaps from Rosa, and they smell divine.

Janet paints evocative and beautiful landscapes.

At 11am    Sue is giving a talk and demonstration on how to make her wonderfully wicked lotions and potions.

At 12noon  Tania will demonstrate her wonderful Playmais – fantastically creative for the kids and grand-kids                but also great for more adult projects. Decorate your own plant pots?

At 1pm     Lara is back! Suggestions for rosé wines, red wines and cava for Christmastime. With free tastings.

At 1,30pm  Jukebox Bandits. Live music – after wine and cava we’ll all be dancing around the Garden Centre.

Worried about parking? Don´t. Our car park at garden centre level will be retained for those with poor mobility and for loading. Roadside parking, as always. And NEW – our overflow car park – just across the road on the big bend.

A huge array of plants, as always. Poinsettias, Christmas trees, gift items, organic products, gift vouchers (if you don´t want to show a value, name a plant – eg. gift a David Austin rose, a Bramley apple tree, the book Mediterranean Garden Plants by Lorraine Cavanagh. Or why not gift an hour or two of Lorraine’s time? She can visit gardens giving masses of invaluable advice – what a magnificent gift!)

We think we’ve thought of it all – so how can you resist!

See you on Wednesday 7th December between 10am and 4pm

Re: Choir carol concert in Competa:

Yes sadly One Voice disbanded in the summer. However several of us are now singing with Coraxalia in Viñuela. There are a few Xmas concerts taking place in the area and we have been pushing for one in Competa.

But for various reasons it was confirmed yesterday that it’s not going to happen.

Hopefully it will be reinstated next year!  Lorna

 

 

Power Cuts Advice Please

Could any tech Digamites help please:

We have an apartment in Torrox Costa. Occasionally we get a power-cut.After a couple of minutes the power is restored.Sometimes,however we get a different sort of outage, whereby the the big black switch in the fuse is thrown and we have to flick back the switch to restore the power.

The former type of cut is OK but the latter could be a nuisance if we are not at home to throw the switch back. (fridge/freezer without power etc).

Can anyone explain the difference between the two types of outage and do we have a specific problem in the apartment?

A reply to Digame might be useful for other readers with similar problems.

Thanks in anticipation

Government raising Taxes On Alcohol, Cigarettes & Soft Drinks

Spain’s Finance Minister, Cristóbal Montoro, announced on Wednesday that the new government is to increase tax on alcohol, tobacco and sugary soft drinks. The government will also try to reduce the limit for cash payments of invoices from €2,500 to €1,000, require large companies to report receivables and expense payments in real-time in order to better control Value Added Tax (VAT), and increase revenues from corporation tax, reportedly by cutting allowable deductions. More details are likely to be provided on Friday following a cabinet meeting at which the tax increases and changes are set to be approved.

Kittens in Need of a Home 

kit01 kit02

Paul and George were born 22/9/16 so they are now just 10 weeks old. Their mum is tame but lived on the streets and gave birth in the garden of a kind person who was feeding her. That person looked after her and the kittens until the kittens were weaned then both mum and kittens went into foster homes.

The kittens are very tame and cuddly and will make very loving, playful pets.

Both have been treated against fleas and worms and have now had their initial vaccinations. If you can offer either or both of them a loving home, please contact (+34) 665 415 901 or email fiona4cas @ gmail.com. Velez Malaga area.

Recommendation –Ricardo at La Vega, Velez Malaga.

I recently bought a used car from him. Yes, you pay more via a dealer.. but I wanted to take advantage of the 12 months guarantee they offer.

The standard of customer service was exceptional from beginning to end. No need for gestors. He does all the paperwork and included the tax in the transaction. He also speaks English. Although they are a Renault dealer, they also stock Dacia and Citroen cars.

They are definitely worth checking out, if you are in the market for a new car.

What’s on- Christmas is coming to Competa (fingers crossed)

Unfortunately, so may be the rain. Thankfully we have lots of warm and cosy indoor space.

This Saturday, December 3rd, come rain or shine, our team of festive friends will be handing out seasonal drinks, snacks and festive fun at our Christmas Fair This is the one chance you get every year to sip steaming mulled punch with the world’s tallest elf.

At Sugar and Spice we have more shopping opportunities than you can shake a sleigh bell at and that’s not all. The lovely ladies from Cudeca will be joining us with their seasonal stall, and the Christmas market will be in town (underneath the town hall if it rains) offering not only a selection of stalls but also the very popular Action for Animals Tombola & Father Christmas

The morning is a real treat for anyone feeling the spirit of the season, and for anyone who’s not, you won’t be able to resist, you soon will be.

Saturday December 3rd 10am – 2pm

Hope to see you there

Cat in Danger

Can anybody take the most beautiful ginger cat. He is currently living at a bin store on the Frigliana road he has been there for a week now. It is the 2nd set of bins on the left travelling North from the motorway junction to Frigliana. He isn’t feral just hungry and very sad. I am going back to UK on Thursday otherwise I would have him. You can get right up to him and stroke him so would be very easy to pick him up.
Please help him the road is very dangerous!

UK Pensions & Tax

There have been a number of posts explaining that Adrian should be declaring and paying Spanish tax on his UK State pension, but what has not been pointed out is that this could be to his considerable financial advantage.

Currently he will be paying at least 20% tax on his state pension which would be at least £1000pa. This is because, although the state pension never has tax deducted from the weekly/monthly payment, it is still taxable. If that is your only income the normal personal allowances would wipe out any tax. However if you have additional income such as a government pension, that pension would probably absorb your allowances and mean that you pay additional tax on your government pension to make up the tax now due on the state pension.

If you do it the correct way and declare your state pension in Spain, then you get a new set of Spanish tax allowances which are usually greater than the state pension, so you would pay no tax in Spain saving at least £1000pa.

This has always been the case, all that has changed is that you must now declare the amount of your government pension (which is still exempt from Spanish tax) but it “may” affect your tax bill in Spain. Whether it will make any difference depends on the amount of your state pension and whether you have any other income in addition to your state pension, such as a private pension.

It is worth noting that if you do not submit annual tax declarations, even if it results in a zero tax bill, you may find it difficult in the future to claim that you are tax resident. This can affect your ability to claim very significant tax exemptions on Capital Gains Tax on the sale of you home and also it can affect the amount of Inheritance Tax that your beneficiaries would pay.             Sid Smith

 

 

Location of El Morche

As I previously used to live in Torrox Costa I  was aware that many people were confused as to the actual location of El Morche, which is a sub-district of Torrox.  As I have now seen posts on Digame that have incorrectly given locations as El Morche, I thought it was wise to clarify this minor error.

El Morche runs from the Rio Güi to Arroyo del Manzano, that is from the border with Lagos (Vélez Málaga) to the bridge where the two unfinished apartment blocks on the beach are located.

Recommendation – Get your chimney ready for Santa!

We have a wood burner and hadn’t had the chimney swept since we bought the house 6 years ago.  So when our insurer reminded us that it was a condition of insurance that chimneys were regularly swept we had a look in Digamextra and , as usual, came up with a recommendation.

We called  Diego, tel: 952515065, email: dja_limp_chimney @ hotmail.com

He cleaned the chimney, left no mess at all, fixed the thermostat on the fan which had been playing up for ages and gave us excellent advice.

All at a very reasonable price.

Lovely Spanish man who speaks fluent English and German.

Now we can be sure Santa won’t get stuck up our chimney!

Ron & Margaret, Benajarafe

No-one responded so I am just enquiring how the cat is and if a home was found for him or if he was put back on the street!

I wondered if Jan who was posting on behalf of the finder could let us have more details or email me on patricanerja @ hotmail .com

UK Pensions & Tax

(1)

Following today’s post by Adrian – if he is a Spanish resident, then the difference is  that both his state retirement pension and his civil service pension have now to be declared in Spain (he should already have been declaring and paying tax if necessary on his state pension here, not the UK) starting from 2015. This means it should already have been done in the declaration done earlier this year. You are not taxed on the civil service one, as it was taxed in the UK under the double taxation agreement, but it is used to calculate your total income and therefore your tax band. This could make a huge difference to the tax you pay, but it can’t be avoided.

If he didn’t do it this year, I would suggest he consults a gestor asap, as they will catch up with him and then fine for non payment on top of it. If he’s not a Spanish resident, then I don’t know the position, but no doubt someone else will. His wife should also have been declaring her state retirement pension here too, if only to prove to the Inland Revenue that she is doing so, even if she is due to be taxed on it. In these high tech days, there is more and more communication between the tax authorities of different countries. They may also be better off doing a joint declaration then separately, but Hacienda will tell you each year which is best for you when they calculate it.

Hope this helps.   Wendy

Under previous and existing rules of the UK/Spain bilateral treaty certain pensions eg civil service, military are not taxable in Spain as long as tax is paid in the UK. The remainder of income is to be taxed in Spain.
This remainder was assessed for tax in its own right, exclusive of the untaxed amount.
Now it must be taxed as a portion of the whole. Effectively adding in the untaxed portion takes the amount to be taxed into a higher band. So it can be seen that this move is a subtle revenue raiser.
Regards Gerry

Reply to Adrian on taxing civil service pensions.

You are correct Adrian, assuming you live for more than 6 months of the year in Spain so should pay tax here.  Since 2015 you must declare your civil service pension in Spain although it remains taxed in the UK and is not taxed here.  Prior to that although that pension  was not taxable in Spain the rest of your income, including your state pension,  was.  Effectively you got two tax allowances, one in each country.    Now you must declare everything and your civil service pension will ‘use up’ you tax allowance in Spain, so your state pension and other income may be taxed more.  See a good Gestor.

Margaret,  Benajarafe

I am an ex-civil servant in receipt of a small pension and from 2015

(to be declared by 30 June 2016) it is now taken into account when calculating any tax that may be due in Spain.

However, as residents here (ie in Spain 183 days or more in one calendar year, not necessarily consecutively) I understood that we are obliged to complete residents’ tax returns even though (up to 2015) we were not liable to pay tax here.( I had to pay tax here but as I earn well below the UK tax threshold I unfortunately cannot set off any UK tax paid against Spanish tax due under the double taxation rules.)     Barbara W

(5)

Regarding the enquiry re tax rule changes for expats there has always been a requirement for British residents of Spain to file an annual tax return in Spain.

I am in a similar situation to the enquirer inasmuch as I receive a Police pension which is taxed at source and there is no way around that.  Under normal circumstances the DWP pension would be simply added to that for tax purposes.

However, there is an arrangement where the DWP element of your pension can be transferred to Spain for tax purposes which, in effect, means that you do not pay tax on it.

In order to do this it is necessary to submit an HMRC Spain – Individual form (it can be downloaded from the HMRC website and is 22 pages long!).  It has to be completed in English and Spanish and has to be accompanied by a form Residencia Fiscal en Espana – Convenio available from the Agencia Tributaria.

You will need a gestor or abogado to complete your first tax return (it has to be done by June each year in respect of the previous year’s tax liability) and he/she will be able to obtain the Residencia Fiscal form.

It’s a bit of a pfaff but worth it!  Hope this helps.

Phil (Cacin)

In response to Adrian’s question about paying tax on his civil service pension, I have been in exactly that bracket and have been paying tax in Spain for many years including this year.
U.K. Government contributory pensions (civil servants, teachers etc) must pay the tax on that to HMRC in the UK. Tax on just about all other income, including retirement pensions, MUST be paid in Spain.
That means you need to get HMRC to separate the tax liability. Contact them and ask for the relevant forms.
Our taxes here are handled by Guillermo Alférez in Viñuela (tel. 629366058). Guillermo speaks good English and understands the system completely. He won’t charge you a fortune and may well save you more than his fee. There is parking outside his office.
Good luck Adrian.  Jeni.

Recommendation –Log Burners and Pellet Stoves

It is that time of year again and if you are feeling the cold and need a Log Burner or Pellet stove I recommend Tehisu in Velez Malaga.  I was very pleased with their service and skills and made a little film about them because I wanted others to know how good they are.  Their contact details are on the film.

You can see it here – no one paid me for this –

Tax Rule Changes for UK Retirement Pensionistas ?

Hi Digamites

I am a Ex Civil Servant who is paid a pension in the UK which is taxed at source.

My wife and I also receive UK retiement pensions.

My pension is included in my total income and taxable in the UK-

My wife’s pension is not taxed.

I understand the Spanish authorities now want tax returns from Ex Pats under

a new law (2015) although there is no tax payable under the UK/Spamish Tax Treaty.

Is this Correct ?

Many Thanks Adrian

What’s on Nerja History Group

This Friday 2nd December

11.00 at Cultural Centre, C/Granada, Nerja

Cervantes – the man, his life and work

by Sue Harvey

In his 400th anniversary year, this will be a well researched

and enlightening look at Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra,

the well-known author of Don Quixote.

Sue Harvey is my predecessor of the NHG and, as many know,

is an entertaining Speaker.

I should like to apologise to those who were unable to get in to the

Talk on 4th November.  Health and Safety regulations have limited

the number of attendees to 100. I have always suggested that you arrive early,

give your donation, choose your seat and then go for coffee and return.

It really is a case of “first come first served”.  Some months, the number of attendees

is around 70 or so.  This is due in part to subject matter and also,

the transient population.  It really goes against the grain for people not to be able to gain entry

so, once again, sincere apologies and please don’t give up on us !

What’s on- The Nerja Players

This coming Tuesday, 29th November, the Nerja Players are proud to present a rehearsed reading of the two act play, “And a Day”.  This play is special for us as it is the first play written by our own member, Arthur Honey.  Arthur says that he,

“Wrote my first play for the Nerja Players just for something to do.  I never expected it to be put on.  “And a Day” was written for a small cast as the Players were short of actors.  It combined my love of the theatre and history, setting it around WWI.  Social history has always been of more interest to me than kings and queens.  I don’t think of myself as a writer – I just try to write, telling the stories of the people that enter into my head.”

“And a Day” is a tale of romance and is set during the First World War and features best friends Dan and Willy, who work in the local factory,  and their respective girl-friends, Sally and Ann.  On the outbreak of war Dan and Willy are sent to the Front and the local factory is requisitioned to make munitions.  Sally is employed filling artillery shells and dreams of Dan’s return.  Ann, however, has a different vision of her future – but nobody knows what the future holds…..

It is directed by Peter Burch who says he is looking forward to working with Arthur in the future as well as with this production.

If you would like to watch this special rehearsed reading please come along on Tuesday 29th November 2016 to the Nerja Bridge Club premises, which are at the top of Avda Castilla Perez, Nerja, behind the blue double doors next to the Cafe Royal.  We meet at 6.30 for 7 pm.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Wanted –Boxes of Cheese Biscuits

Does anyone know of any shop that sells the plastic boxes of a biscuit selection for cheese? I am not talking about titchy little packets with 3 different biscuits in, but the big double layered box about 9″ square with lots of different ones. Usually made by McVities or Jacobs, but the brand doesn’t matter. Does anywhere in the Axarquía stock them?

Services Available Animal Healer

heal01 heal02 heal03 heal04Steven Rowle Animal Healer

Steven Rowle is an experienced and intuitive animal healer who uses a combination of Shamanic and Rieki healing energy, to help animals.

A qualified Reiki Master,  Steven is able to pick up imbalances within their aura and then works with the animals to clear these irregularities, helping them to restore their balance.

Every healing session is different and is individually tailored to fit the needs of each animal. Steven focuses not only on physical ailments, but also on how the animal is feeling emotionally and mentally too, which if not addressed can lead to physical problems in the body.

The benefits of healing for humans are well documented with hundreds of studies having been done into the benefits of healing and how it can work. Of course the sceptics may say that there is a placebo effect, but that flies right out of the window with animals. Hands on healing works very well. In many cases dramatically. There is no placebo effect with animals. They do not have a faith, are not aware that I am a healer, nor aware of the benefits healing can give. When healing is given to them they take it readily and are ready to move on if possible and gain wellbeing improvements.

The Healing that is given aims to help the animal rebalance and take over the recovery process. Hands on healing can help your pet on 3 levels, emotionally, mentally and physically, and to be healthy, your pets, like us, need to be in balance on all of these levels.

Healing energy through the hands from a universal source of energy should not be used as a substitute for veterinary care and attention.

Please feel free to call me any time for a consultation.

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in  JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
