Google and Bing Search Problem: Searches Returning OLD Contact Links Instead of Newest Links at Top of Results; Until They Fix It, add current year to search terms to get newest results first.

For example, if you search, “doctorlaptop nerja 2016”, it works fine.  However, leave out the “2016” and the results bring you to a 5 year’s old blog site I don’t even remember with outdated info!

While this should be corrected soon, Search Engines are changing and there are problems to be expected , instead of returning the latest, new info on a search term, Google and Bing have been often returning old, out of date search results and burying the new info entries far below. Try http://www.duckduckgo.com for a fresh approach to searching.

Here is the correct contact info for DoctorLaptop. Please write this down for future reference!

Services Needed – Non Resident Tax


Can anyone tell me what I use for the formula to calculate the 2015 Tax form 210 for Non Residents in Torrox?

Thank you.

dibroomfield @ gmail.com


Can anyone share their experience of paying the Non Residence Tax without using a lawyer?

We live in Competa Campo.

Thanks in advance.

John. Emsil   lisandjohnbates @ gmail.com

(3)The Answer !

Further to Friday’s post, the formula for calculating this tax has indeed changed.

For properties in Nerja, the formula is :

Valor Catastral x 2% x 19.50%

However, for properties in Torrox, the formula is;

Valor Catastral x 1.1% x  19.50%

The tax needs to be paid by the end of the year.

If you would like us to fill in the form for you, please contact :

Recommendation for Dog Treat Lady

I have just had  delivery of 1 kilo of tripe sticks from a lovely lady called Anna who advertised on Digamextra on Tuesday.
I can highly recommend Anna who gives a friendly, excellent service and really good prices, much cheaper than vet or pet shop.The sticks are of really good quality. My dog is delighted to have his favourite healthy snack again.
Thank you Anna!
Contact Anna  on  rufuspt35 @ gmail. com



Recommendation – For Air-Conditioning.
We recommend Keith Bucknell of Cooltec .Tel 663 728 798
Keith fitted air conditioning with attendant service recommended for rental properties in our house here in Torrox earlier this year.
He quoted a fair price, fitted the system within two weeks and was professional and helpful in every way.
He offers good aftercare and support.
Thanks Keith
Anthea and Mike Waters. Casa Anna.




Rental Needed-Long term rental in the Axarquía

Campo or possibly edge of a village, but definitely not in an urbanised area – wanted for 2 or 3 German ladies.

Ideally a finca with more than one building with living accommodation or a large property divided into separate living areas.

No set budget as it depends on the accommodation on offer and how many could share the rental costs.   If you have or know of any property that you think may be suitable please get in touch with me in the first instance and I can then put you in touch with my friend.
