Age Concern Ibiza y Formentera, May 2015 Newsletter

IN MEMORY

AC Estepona death of volunteerIt is with much sadness that we learned of the deaths of two friends.

In England Michael Mooney following a short illness .

Rosalie Ellison suddenly in Can Misses following a short illness.

We send our prayers and thoughts to their family and friends at this difficult time.

 

INFORMATION

agencia tributariaAs you will have seen in the press recently ,if you reside in Spain for more than 183 days in a year, you are automatically classed as a resident, for tax purposes, and as a consequence your worldwide income must be taxed in Spain. This includes your pension.

Therefore, if you are retired and haven’t presented a tax declaration yet in Spain, you have until the end of June 2015 to do so, without receiving any penalties or interest.

With the closer exchange of information between the various European Tax authorities, it has made the Spanish Treasury aware of how many foreign pensioners do not pay tax at all on their foreign pensions here, or do not do it according to the rules.

Therefore, if you are in any doubt, it is in your own interest to check with a Gestoria.

 

DRIVING LICENSES

drivers licenseIf you were legally resident in Spain before January 2013 you should have changed your English licenses to a Spanish one.

If your license has expired, or is due to expire, you must renew it in the country of residence.

You can get more information by following N332.es which is run by a group of Spanish Traffic Police Officers who provide motoring advice in English.

 

IN RETROSPECT

thankyouEaster Fayre. We must thank Margaret Nawaz and her team of helpers for the very generous donation following this event.

Bingo. A very successful afternoon was held at The Olive Tree for a last minute arranged Bingo. The format was slightly different this time and seemed to go down very well. Thanks must go to Roland, Anna and their staff for the delicious refreshments (cakes to die for!). Thanks also to President Tony and Josie for being the callers. As usual members were generous with purchases of raffle tickets and a healthy balance was achieved.
