Bank Accounts

  1. 1. I was advised by my bank personally on visiting them last Wednesday that the account would be frozen if I did not prove income, I prepare a tax return each year and have a letter confirming my return which shows the income and tax paid, this is sufficient for the bank. The bank scanned the documents and advised me all  was well. Don’t panic the Government is simply establishing your income. If in doubt consult a legal adviser.


I have yet to come across this problem with our accounts although some time ago Sabadell did ask to see our passports as ID, but as we had not long opened the account they said it wasn’t necessary to show them again.

Just in case they are not aware M.S who wrote yesterday will need to complete yearly non-resident tax returns (form 210) to the Spanish tax office





Advice Needed Please

Hi Digamites, we own a holiday home in Competa, but do not live in Spain, and have THAT letter from the bank regarding income etc. Can anyone please clarify for me what it is they require, will a pay slip do, or do they want my P 60, we have no income in Spain, we do not let our house at any time, and pay cash into our Unicaja account when in Spain to cover direct debits etc and to use for holiday money, any advice would be appreciated, please post replies to Digame as I am sure I am not the only one in this situation,

thanks again Jane for a wonderful, informative service,Maria

The ‘Garden Party’ on 25th June raised 283.50 each, The fantastic Lola Boys on 1st July raised 356.60 each, and our trip to Gibraltar on the 6th raised 66e each.

Thank you so much to everyone that donated prizes for various events, and to everyone that supported us – you are all fantastic. Lots of love Sam & Liz

 Services Needed Gold Dealers

Does anyone know a dealer here that buys nine carat gold at reasonable market prices ? I have been to all the gold dealers in Torre Del Mar and they will not buy nine carat only 14, 18 and 22 and so on.
Anywhere between Nerja and Torre Del Mar best but would travel, living in Torrox Campo.
Answers to Digame as I am sure other people may also have gold pieces they no longer want and if they are from the UK they will inevitably be nine carat gold.



Services Avaialable- Spanish Language Lessons

I am a Belgian master in civil engineering and  a master of science in industrial management. Spanish resident since 2004, I am teaching Spanish as a hobby.

I studied Spanish at high level  for many years  and obtained an official diploma with highest honours. My wife has the Spanish nationality, so we speak this beautiful language at home.

I lived and worked in Latin America as Belgian civil servant and as “Flemish (Belgium) technological – commercial representative” of the Flemish minister of Foreign Trade, Economy  and Science.

CPP, “Colegio de Periodistas del Peru” , the Peruvian College of Journalists, gave me an honorary membership.

The classes can be  given in Dutch, French, German or English at a place of your choice in Axarquia and at the rate of 12 euro per hour and 20 euros for 2 hours. Those are also the rates for 2 people if they are together.

My cv and references are available in several languages.

Recommendation- Campo Cats

I would like to add my recommendation for Linda at Campocats.  My two cats have not spent a night away from home since they arrived with us as wee little kittens, eight years ago, and I have to say just how impressed we have been with the whole operation, Linda is obviously a devoted cat person, and it really shows.  I had expected that my little female cat to be quite nervous, but when I collected them this morning, I couldn’t have been more wrong, she was completely at ease and showing absolutely no signs of stress at all, unlike me who fretted everyday I was away!!  So now I will have no qualms about leaving them in the totally fantastic hands of Linda for any future trips.  Huge thank you to Campocats.



Recommendation- Removals

Cathy and Alan from C and A recently moved furniture and assorted household goods for myself and my husband from Rincon de la Victoria back to the UK.
They came and packed, stored the goods and delivered them promptly to our new home all for an excellent price. They are not only professional but very pleasant people who made the experience much less stressful than it otherwise might have been. A very big thank you. They can be contacted on 602627545



 Recommendation-Dr. Laptop
