Tax Declaration 2015

For those of you who do your own tax declaration directly with Hacienda (as opposed to via a gestor/financial advisor etc), you may not be aware that for the first time this year, pensions previously not declared under the Double Taxation Agreement, such as Teachers Pensions, Army Pensions and the like, from 2015 have to be declared – not to be taxed (as they are still taxed in the UK) but for calculating your tax band. This is not optional! I only found out by chance a couple of weeks ago, and as they will almost certainly catch up with you, best to do it right now and avoid not only the tax in the future but a hefty fine as well!

Hope this is helpful-   Wendy



Can any Digamigo help me identify a chrysalis? (No pic)
It is on a vertical wall, in the shadow of a leaf growing in a wall pot.               About the size of a well grown mussel and in fact looks like half of one, sliced through it’s length. The covering is like a fine silver grey gossamer. Through it can be made out a shape about 3cm long, half cm diameter.
Is it friend or foe?  Gerry

Recommendation Needed –

Hello Digamigos

I rent my flat in Torre del Mar for summer visitors, and have had an enquiry about what to do in the area (outside the normal ‘how far is the beach’ questions).

I’m recommending a visit to Malaga, but I’m not sure what to advise them on how to get there.

I know that there is a bus service, but I’ve been unable to find anything on-line about timetables.  And I have no idea what to advise them about parking in the city if they decide to drive.

Or perhaps there’s a half-way house of parking outside the city and getting a bus or train in?

Also, if anyone knows of a reliable tour operator in Torre del Mar who can arrange short trips (such as visits to Granada), I’d be very grateful to have the information.

Any advice most gratefully received –

please reply to malagahouse at gmail dot com

(or to digamextra if you think the information would be useful to others).


Recommendations- Airport Parking


SP parking,

Very good, we have used them loads of times very good at getting you to the airport and just phone them when you are ready for pickup when you get back. Click the link above.


I park my car with VIP Cars. Name may now be Crown Parking.
The cost for 3 days will be 28.50 this is the Minimum cost.
Additional days are charged at 3.50 per day
They wi  leave you to the Airport and Collect you.
They are just opposite the Brewery.


I have used Parking Norte at Malaga Airport for a few years.

Very professional & friendly company & very competitive prices.

They wait for you at departures when you fly out & back at departures when you arrive back at Malaga.

Included in the price is a free car wash & they do an amazing full valet at a really good price.

Nothing better than jumping into a lovely clean car when you arrive back home. LJ



Wanted-Chicken Food

Can anyone advise where to buy food for Chickens. Currently I buy from a feed store in Algarrobo, but would like to find another outlet.

I live in the Sayalonga Campo area and am prepared to look anywhere between Nerja and Velez Malaga or even beyond.

Answers to Digamextra please





I would like to know of any and all Organic Produce Shops between Nerja

and Torre del Mar?

Mainly for fruit and veg.

Would really appreciate locations of shops rather than market stalls.

Thanks a stack!

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

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

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.
