Re: Buying a rural property: when is a house a legal house?

As has been said here many times before...

Re: Starting A Business

People rarely consider being an artist as being a business. Most don't even consider it work.

Re: Travel with Spanish NIE

If a Spanish university has accepted you then surely they are the best people to ask for advice. They want your cash, they will help if they can.

Re: Social Security and Taxation Self Employed

Re: Simple numero contribuinte question?

Thank you.

I'll ask more questions at the tax office Monday. I suspected it was similar to the UK with people being issued an 'emergency' number as a temporary measure. Tax office people in Lisbon...

Re: Christmas/New Year break - Lisbon

One tip.

Many tourists miss this simply because it is up the hill. Very little public transport connections, except the legendary Nº28 (Golden) tram. If you don't mind walking up hill through...

Re: 'Cottage Industry', Worldwide postage from Galicia?

I often post 100cm x 8cm tubes to the USA from Spain and Portugal. Portugal PO charges are slightly more than in Spain (Spain just under €30, Portugal just over). A few years ago pricing changed from...

Re: Granada

I am possibly an exception. I am one of those artists who are prepared to work. I also know how to sell - a skill fundamentally much more important than your artistic ability.

But, yep - you don't...

Re: Non-resident, no insurance, minor healthcare question?

Cutting to the quick...

A return to Spain would cost around €150 in travel minimum (whichever way I look at it). Three days in time all told (if lucky). Two nights accommodation etc. So, around...

Non-resident, no insurance, minor healthcare question?

Re: 23 year old, moving to Spain?

Re: Northern Spain, Lugo, Leon, Burgos area

Or, farther north!

Don't write northern Spain off just because the winter inland is hard. All along the coast, winter is very mild. The Atlantic (particularly the Mid-Antlantic drift) keeps the...
