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

Recommendation Needed–Vacuum Cleaner

I need a new vacuum cleaner and do not seem to have had much luck with others I have chosen in the past.  Can anyone recommend a good vacuum cleaner for laminate flooring, tiles and large rugs?  Has anyone got a Henry vacuum cleaner and if so what do you think of it as that is the one I have been recommended to buy.

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 !

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.
