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.

A lady called Julia was asking for cakes for the fund raising event at El Pilon on Wednesday but she didn’t leave any contact details for volunteers to contact her.

Please could she re post with her contact details? Thank you.      Jolene



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
