    Expatriates with information or suspicions about tobacco smuggling and tax fraud are being asked to call a Customs Hotline with any information that could lead to arrests or seizures.

    The call for help from the British community follows the jailing of convicted cigarette smuggler Malcolm McGowan, who has just been extradited from Spain and is now starting a four-year jail term.

    The freephone number to pass on information is 900 988 922. For people in the UK, it is 0800 595 000. People can also email [email protected] There is no need to give personal details, and information that leads directly to an arrest could be considered for a small reward.

    McGowan, 61, originally from Edinburgh, was arrested at a swimming pool in Valencia on 10 August by the Guardia Civil. He fled the UK 12 years ago after being found guilty of smuggling 28.3 million cigarettes into the country. His crimes robbed the UK of around 4 million in duty and he was sentenced in his absence in December 2001.

    McGowan was part of a wider conspiracy to smuggle around 56 million cigarettes into the UK between November 1999 and March 2000. Ten other men were involved in the plot, which robbed the UK taxpayer of over 8.2 million.

    Adrian Farley, Assistant Director of Criminal Investigation for HM Revenue & Customs, said:

    McGowan is finally facing UK justice after 12 years on the run. We are determined to pursue fugitives and ensure they face the consequences of their criminal activity. HMRC would like to thank the Spanish authorities and UK organisations that assisted with this operation.

    The call to ring 900 988 922 comes as smugglers try to


    make huge profits from illegal imports of cigarettes, and the selling of low-quality, counterfeit cigarettes, tobacco and alcohol.

    Customs officers are also keen for information about other items such as drugs, firearms, obscene material and endangered species. Tax frauds that HMRC want to hear about include betting and gaming, money laundering and the carousel VAT scam in Europe.

    Smugglers and fraudsters cheat the rest of us by not contributing the tax that pays for schools, hospitals and public services, said an HMRC spokesman. People in the British expatriate community can help us to find them.

    The cost of an ITV test on a vehicle Spains answer to an MOT varies by up to 144 per cent depending upon which region of the country you live in, says a leading consumer group. This rises to up to 208 per cent for motorbikes and mopeds.

    FACUA-Consumers in Actions recently-published price comparison shows that in the western-Spanish region of Extremadura, a motorbike ITV costs 25.93 euros, yet in the Valencia region the fee jumps to 63.23 euros. And prices in general have gone up by 2.6 per cent since last year.

    In a report by ThinkSpain, the sharpest increases in cost have been seen in Asturias, Mallorca and Cantabria, whilst the cheapest of Spains 17 autonomous regions to get an ITV are Extremadura and Navarra.

    But car and bike owners cannot simply drive to the

    cheapest region to have their ITV carried out, because the criteria for testing differs across federal borders and a test certificate is not valid on home turf if it was obtained in a region different to that of residence.

    This means drivers in Andaluca who go to neighbouring Extremadura for cheaper tests will find their ITV is not valid when they are back home in Andaluca.

    However, this does not apply to tourists, so an Extremadura resident visiting Andaluca for a week or two will not be fined for carrying an ITV sticker from another region.

    Drivers are not obliged to have their vehicles tested in the same province they live in, but they must take the test in their federal region of residence.

    Recent reports claim residents on the Orihuela

    Costa (Alicante) who had gone over the nearby southern border into Murcia for ITVs were being fined when asked by police to show their vehicle documents.

    But these same residents could travel to the provinces of Valencia or Castelln if they wished, since they would still be within the correct region although as the prices are regional, they would be the same as in Orihuela.

    Different regions have different testing criteria in some, including the Comunidad Valenciana, these include emissions, and in others, greater control and more stringent measures are in place for cars being imported from abroad.

    FACUA-Consumers in Action has called for ITV stations, which are State-owned, to increase their prices fairly and gradually and to ensure they test for defects which have a bearing on road safety.

    They have also appealed for re-testing where a vehicle fails to be free of charge if this is carried out within a reasonable period of time.

    A couple who left their three young children in a locked car in the heat in order to go to the beach have been arrested in Benalmdena, Mlaga.

    According to press reports, the father, 48, and mother, 39 had left them with no ventilation or water at the hottest part of the day.

    A member of the public saw the children shut in the car in a car park near the beach and unable to escape, sweating profusely and feeling dizzy, all of which put them at serious risk of heat-stroke. This was at around 14.45hrs on Wednesday last week, but the news has only just been released.

    Firefighters were called out and cut the children free from the vehicle, then traced the parents who were arrested.

    Police say the children did not want to go to the beach, insisting they went to another one where they could hire a pedalo, resulting in a family argument and the parents saying, well, you can stay in the car, then.

    The nationality of the family has not been revealed.


    Guardia Civil officers in Madrid have seized a Gibraltarian monkey which they found in a car heading for France.

    They saw a basket in the back of the car, and the driver tried to convince them it had a dog in it.

    But when police opened the basket, they found a Gibraltar monkey, which is an endangered species.

    The driver was unable to show any documentation for the animal, so it was taken by the Guardia Civils environmental wing, SEPRONA and is being housed in the Acurium Zoo in Madrid until the alleged owner can prove it is his monkey.

    Given that it has already been identified as a Gibraltar monkey, it is likely it does not belong to the driver stopped on the R-15 and will be returned to the wild.

    These are the only species of monkey which live wild in Europe otherwise they are mainly found in the Atlas mountains in southern Morocco.

    A Guardia Civil officer at the Gibraltar border was knocked over by a motorcyclist last Wednesday morning who was trying to dodge police and get past the inspections on commuters heading into and out of the Rock.

    The policeman suffered minor injuries, says the Spanish interior ministry, but these are being checked to make sure there is nothing more serious hidden under the surface.

    This is the second incident of its type in the customs inspection queue

    at the Spain-Gibraltar border in less than a month.

    On August 6, a Gibraltar-registered car driver ignored the officers attempt to pull him over for inspection and continued on his way, knocking the policeman over in the process.

    The officer suffered injuries severe enough that he had to be off work for a few days.

    When police caught up with the car, it had been abandoned in the car park next to the border and several cartons of contraband cigarettes

    were found inside.

    Guardia Civil officers say they are suffering stress and insults from people stuck for hours in the queue.

    But commuters crossing the border say they have undergone bullying behaviour from police and seen them deliberately destroy private property with no motives.

    Gibraltar authorities hand out bottles of water to workers, who are forced to wait for up to seven hours in direct sunlight.


    Australian actor Hugh Jackman will be awarded the Donostia Prize at the forthcoming San Sebastin Film Festival in the Basque Country on September 27.

    Jackman, most famous for his role in the X-Men series, will pick up his trophy just minutes before his most recent film, Prisoners, is aired.

    Festival organisers have applauded Jackmans versatility as an actor and his ability to appeal to viewers of all ages, on screen and stage, given his long career in Broadway.

    Jackmans role as Wolverine in X-Men, X-Men 2 and X-Men: The final decision has so far seen him net an Oscar nomination and

    winning a Golden Globe and a Tony Award, and he is due back in Wolverines clothes next year in X-Men: Days of future past. Jackman has also starred in other box-office successes under directors as diverse as Christopher Nolan, Woody Allen, Darren Aronofsky and Shawn Levy, including playing Jean Valjean in the Tom Hooper version of Les Misrables alongside Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, and a leading role in Baz Luhrmanns Australia with compatriot Nicole Kidman.

    The second confirmed winner of the Donostia Prize an award named after the city of San Sebastins name in the Basque language, euskera is long-time Almodvar Girl Carmen Maura.

    Spains roads have claimed a total of 235 lives this summer alone although this figure is 10 per cent less than in 2012, according to the ministry of traffic.

    A total of 113 drivers and passengers lost their lives in July. Most deaths occur on minor roads, with 175 killed here and another 60 on motorways.

    Motorbike accidents, however, have seen a rise in fatalities with 46 deaths on the roads in July and August, compared to 39 last year.

    According to the ministry of traffic, 17 of the deceased were not wearing a seatbelt including a 12-year-old child.

    But awareness campaigns about seatbelts appear to be working, they say, since the percentage of fatal victims travelling without one was 16 per cent this year compared to 26 per cent last year.

    The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) cited the usual reasons for accidents causing deaths distraction, tiredness, speeding, and drink-driving.

    Abortion Law Reform To Be finalised In OctoberA reform to the existing

    abortion law is set to be launched in October, says minister for justice Alberto Ruiz-Gallardn. Although he does not give details of the final draft, the minister and former mayor of Madrid insists it will be in keeping with the PPs original stance and respects the rights of women.

    Ruiz-Gallardn denied rumours that the party was divided over the contents, and stressed that the final law will have the unanimous approval of all members.

    So far, plans for changing the abortion law text have divided the nation, since it will be considerably more restrictive than the existing legislation drawn up by the socialists during their reign between 2004 and the end of 2011.

    Under the PSOE, a woman

    in Spain could terminate a pregnancy on similar terms to those of women in many northern European countries where the child would be born with a handicap or genetic illness that would shorten his or her life expectancy or impede quality of life for the child and parents; where the mothers physical or mental health could be adversely affected, or for other, sound reasons relating to the impossibility of bringing the child up.

    These would be performed on the national health system provided a psychiatrist gave clearance, and mothers aged 16 and 17 did not have to obtain their parents consent.

    In many other northern European countries, including the UK, a patient of any age including under 16 can request their medical details

    remain confidential and do not need their parents consent, nor are they obliged to inform them, before terminating a pregnancy.

    The PP wants to change the law so that all women under the age of 18 and therefore considered minors must obtain their parents written permission first, and the only feasible grounds for an abortion are that the mothers or babys life or health is at extreme risk. Deformities of the foetus, or any type of handicap or hereditary disorder, would not, the PP originally stated, be grounds for an abortion since this would be against the UNs stance on equality for the disabled. But the final contents of the new law have not been made public.

    The text will be presented to the Council of Ministers in October for approval.

    Dear EditorRe: Gibraltar - A obvious ploy by the prime Minister, Rajoy to divert attention away

    from himself with the ongoing corruption investigation and the internal problems that Spain has.

    The Spanish I have spoken to just shrug their shoulders and say what they want are jobs and food on the table. Gibraltar is in the interest of the Spanish Government but not the Spanish people, Spain has Ceuta and Melilla on Moroccan territory which Morocco would like back but Spain refuses to negotiate !! Also the financial package of 900,000 euros compensation just given to the fishermen who are suppose to be losing earnings over this dispute is way over the top and again meant to keep attention on Gibraltar. Franco closed the border with Gibraltar for many years but the Gibraltarians managed so let Gibraltar close the border this time to see how the Spanish Government react. Thank you.

    Ken Crouch, puerto de Mazarron

    Dear EditorI have never visited Gibraltar and I have no concerns about who owns it. However

    I cannot see it ever being handed back to Spanish rule. It has been British for three hundred years from a time when the world was a far different place. The Spanish are no doubt following the lead of the Argentinians who are currently making a lot of noise about The Falklands. Cristina Kirchner, the president of Argentina is without doubt arousing the passions of her people to cover up the problems of their ailing economy. perhaps the Spanish Government thought that this would be an ideal diversion away from its own economic problems. If every Country looked back on history and tried to revert back to the status quo of three hundred years ago what a crazy mess the world would be in. Can you see the Italians, British, Russians and the like returning to the lands of their forefathers from the United States and leaving their homes to the former occupants, the native Indians? Can you see the Spanish leaving Argentina and returning their lands to its former owners and occupiers? what about Brazil? would portugal cope with a returning horde of people? Of course not, how ridiculous! Spain, get over it. Nothing will change. Gibraltarians want to be British. The wish of the occupants of a Country or portion of land must be the overriding factor in any such situation


    Dear EditorDear Sir/Madam,I feel your readers should be aware of a situation I found myself in recently.

    A well known insurance company (name omitted) phoned me and offered me a full English style home insurance policy which I agreed to commence in Feb 2013.On Saturday morning of 10th Aug I had a call from a neighbour to say there

    was water coming down the street from my house.He couldnt ring the bell as the electricity wasnt working. I found that it had come from my utility room, when I checked I found that the 100 litre electric boiler had fallen off the wall smashing my washing machine and tumble dryer.I contacted the insurance company for an assesor to come, they eventually

    sent two men on Tuesday, who seemed to think that they could repair it - what they found shocked them. They took pictures and phoned the information to HO.I got a phone call on Friday (16th Aug) telling me that it was accidental

    damage and it was not covered in their policy.There is no mention in their policy about this, if I had been told I would never have had the policy after all that is why we insure our homes.So please could you inform you readers so that they can check their own

    policies. At the time of writing this I still have no hot water for showers, washing etc.Sincerely,Mrs A Hughes

    Friday GolF Society6 SEPTEMBER: 27 players including

    7 guests took part in Friday golf this week. We played a best 2 stableford competition (with two hidden holes in the event of a tie).

    The weather was magnificent so the only excuse people had for poor scoring is the fact that the greens have just been tined and top dressed.

    Guests played a big part this week. not only were they in the winning and last placed teams, one also won nearest the pin.

    The winning team with 90 points was peter White, mimmo pettinicchio, Jill heron (guest) and Carolyn minnis (guest). last place and chocolates went to sylvia Green, louise shepherd, kristina olsson and hilary Frayling (guest) with 74 points.

    nearest the pin was won by Jill heron (guest) with a distance of 1.90m.

    For the first time since we changed the hidden holes rule we had a tie this week. however both teams scored the same number of points on the hidden holes so the tie was decided by lower handicap. so we are still waiting for the new hidden holes rule to play a full part in the scoring.

    We welcomed back lennart and kristina olsson to almerimar and lennart presented the prizes this week.

    Spains National Court jailed six Somali pirates accused of trying to kidnap the crew on board a tuna-fishing boat from the Basque Country 11 months ago.

    The Izurdia was targeted by invaders with gun-shots and grenades on October 10, 2012 when it was sailing in the Indian Ocean some 350 miles off the coast of Somalia, East Africa.

    Occupants of a pirate boat attempted to board the tuna ship and opened fire on the crew, at which point the on-board security guards put their emergency safety procedures into practice everyone but the captain and the operations chief hid in the control room and a security barrier was raised around the boat.

    Security guards responded to the six pirates with an intense volley of gun-shots as the Izurdia was chased across the water for 30 minutes, before the accused men finally fled the scene.

    A Dutch NATO ship, sent out to the Indian Ocean to combat piracy, discovered the offending pirates the next day and sent out two helicopters who let off three warning shots to them.

    They finally surrendered and handed over their arms, although did not initially stop their boat when the NATO ship ordered,which in itself is an offence.

    Cabdiweli Cabdullahi (Abdu Willy) and Raageggesey Hassan Aji were jailed for 36 years apiece for a similar incident in 2009, and for the attempted abduction last autumn, Adane Yusuf Ali, Abdi Ali Salad, Abdilahi

    Ise Jama, Yahye Omar Ali Hassan, Ali Mahammed Ali and Ali Mahamed Hirsi have been imprisoned for a total of 1,122 years between them although in practice, they will probably only serve a maximum of 40 years each.

    only 20

    vaCCInatIOn JaB at 70 WILL WarD OFF SHIngLeS aCrOSS tHe UK

    This month sees the launch of the UK shingles vaccination programme for the elderly. All adults aged 70 and those aged 79 will be offered a jab.

    This is great for anyone vulnerable to this painful condition which affects one in five adults.

    Shingles, or herpes zoster, is an infection of a nerve and the area of skin around it. Around 800,000 people will be eligible for the vaccine.

    Why is the vaccine only being offered to people aged 70 or 79?

    Its a catch-up programme. Each year, all those who are 70 and all those who are 79 will be vaccinated. It is the quickest and most cost-effective way of getting the most at-risk people vaccinated. After nine years,

    itll just be offered to people when they reach 70.

    Why do people get shingles?Anyone who has had

    chickenpox can get shingles. The virus lies inactive in your nerve cells for life. Shingles is a reactivation of this chickenpox virus which appears as a painful, sore rash.

    Can anyone get shingles?It affects 20 per cent of

    the population and is most common in adults. It gets you when youre down and your immune system is weak.

    How can I opt into the vaccination?

    Your GP will offer a single jab in the arm.

    If its just a rash, why is the vaccine necessary?

    Shingles is very painful and causes great suffering. While

    the rash usually lasts two to three weeks, people often have permanent pain in the area of the rash. This neuralgia is debilitating and very difficult to treat. One in 1,000 people over 70 will die from shingles.

    Can you have the jab if youve had shingles?

    Yes. Once you have had shingles you are at a higher risk than normal of getting it again. The vaccine will make a repeated attack less likely.

    Can you get the vaccine if you are under 70?

    It is licensed for the over 50s and you can get the jab privately. If you have a medical condition that puts you at higher risk of shingles, chat to your doctor about whether it is worth it.

    A BALANCED DIETRabbits have complex

    digestive systems, so its very important that they receive a proper diet. Many health problems in rabbits are caused by foods that are incompatible with their digestive physiology. A basic rabbit diet should consist of the following foods:

    Hay: Rabbits need hayspecifically, Timothy grass hay. Rabbits should have access to a constant supply of this hay, which aids their digestive systems and provides the necessary fiber to help prevent health problems such as hair balls, diarrhea, and obesity. Alfalfa hay, on the other hand, should only be given to adult rabbits in very limited quantities, if at all, because its high in protein, calcium, and calories.

    Vegetables: In addition to hay, the basic diet of an adult rabbit should consist of leafy, dark green vegetables such as romaine and leaf lettuces, parsley, cilantro, collard greens, arugula, escarole, endive, dandelion greens, and others. Variety is important, so feed your rabbit three different vegetables at a time. When introducing new veggies to a rabbits diet, try just one

    at a time and keep quantities limited.

    Fruits and TreatsWhile hay and vegetables

    are the basis of a healthy diet, rabbits also enjoy treats. Cartoons and other fictional portrayals of rabbits would lead us to believe that carrots are the basis of a healthy rabbit diet. Many rabbits enjoy carrots, but they are a starchy vegetable and should only be given sparingly as a treat. Other treats your rabbit might enjoy are apples (without stems or seeds), blueberries, papaya, strawberries, pears, peaches, plums, or melon. Extra-sugary fruits like bananas, grapes, and raisins are good too, but should be given on a more limited basis.

    Foods to AvoidWith such sensitive digestive

    systems, there are a number of foods that rabbits should avoid eating. These include iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cabbage, corn, beans, peas, potatoes, beets, onions, rhubarb, bamboo, seeds, grains, and many others. Also, dont feed your rabbit chocolate, candy, anything moldy, or most human foods. If you are not sure about a certain food, ask your rabbits veterinarian.

    PelletsIf you choose to make

    pellets a part of your rabbits diet, it is best to use them as a supplement to the dark green, leafy vegetables, not as a substitute. These pellets should only be given in small quantities (1/8 -1/4 cup per five pounds of body weight per day, spread out over two daily feedings). Also, make sure to purchase Timothy-based pellets. Many brands of rabbit feed contain seeds, corn, and other foods that are too high in calories to be the basis for a healthy rabbits diet.

    WaterRabbits should always have

    an ample supply of fresh water available. Be sure to change your rabbits water at least once each day. Water can be kept in a sipper bottle or bowl. If you use a sipper bottle, watch new rabbits to make sure they know how to use the bottles, and clean bottles daily so the tubes dont get clogged. If you use a bowl, make sure that the bowl is heavy enough to avoid tipping and spilling.

    Rabbits may be easy to love, but theyre not quite as easy to care for. These lovable, social animals are wonderful companions for people who take the time to learn about their needs. Though providing care for these adorable creatures isnt difficult, rabbits have a long lifespanmore than 10 yearsand many specific care requirements. Anyone considering adding a rabbit to their family should carefully research books and web sites on rabbit care before making a decision. Here are some quick tips to get you started:

    HOME SWEET HOMEIndoors or Outdoors?Every rabbit owner should

    know that the safest place for a rabbit to live is indoors. Rabbits should never be kept outdoors! Domestic rabbits are different from their wild relativesthey do not tolerate extreme temperatures well, especially in the hot summer months. Even in a safe enclosure, rabbits are at risk from predators. Merely the

    organisation has slammed the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) for illegal speed-camera margins which have led to thousands of drivers being fined when they should not have been.

    The Spanish Automobile Association (AEA) says the DGT was using an obsolete law to fine motorists, and has called for action to be taken.

    According to the AEA, a rule known as the UNE 26444 which was drawn up in 1992 and ceased to be effective in 2006 establishes margins for error relating to speeds which are much more restrictive than permitted by Spanish road traffic laws.

    Fixed speed cameras allow for a three-kilometre-per-hour margin meaning on a motorway with a limit of 120, drivers can be fined for travelling at more than 123 kilometres per hour and mobile speed traps allow a seven-kilometre-per-hour margin.

    In other words, if a driver is caught at 123 kilometres per hour, it may be considered he or she was travelling exactly at the speed limit given that a three-kilometre margin for error is allowed, but if a camera catches the same driver apparently travelling at 124 kilometres, the minimum figure acceptable would in fact be 121 kilometres even though, at this speed, the car speed-o-meter may register slightly less and leave the motorist being fined despite being within the permitted limit.

    But a Ministerial Order launched in December

    2006, replacing UNE 26444, meant the calculations by static speed cameras were taken to be up four kilometres per hour out and mobile speed guns by seven, either above or below the figure recorded, which could mean thousands of drivers given the benefit of the doubt if their speed was only slightly over the limit or if they were indeed speeding, but were on the cusp of two fine levels.

    This was updated in 2010 and the margins lifted to five kilometres for fixed cameras with speeds of up to 100 kilometre per hour, and five per cent for static cameras and seven per cent for mobile guns with speeds exceeding 100 kilometres per hour.

    The maximum error percentage is used where the DGT cannot be certain of the exact figure.

    But the AEA says that since 2010, the DGT has still been applying the UNE 26444 criteria, meaning tens of thousands of motorists have been fined

    unnecessarily, or those on the cusp suffered larger fines than they legally should have to pay and others faced criminal charges when these should have only been civil.

    Precedents in Europe exist whereby such fines have been reduced or scrapped, including one in Belgium which states that a breach of road traffic codes of conduct cannot be accredited where the means with which evidence was obtained are linked to an obsolete law.

    In Spain, for all other traffic offences including parking, jumping red lights or disobeying traffic signals whether in error or deliberately, the police are not obliged to provide proof and the officers word is considered sound evidence, with the onus being on the driver to prove he or she did not commit the offence.

    Officers are not obliged to stop the driver and inform them if they catch them in the act of committing a road traffic breach


    Spain has called for sound explanation from Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad over the responsibility for the recent chemical bomb attacks in Damascus which killed 1,400 people, of whom 400 were children.

    Mariano Rajoys government is in full agreement with the USA that evidence clearly points to the fact that the government of Syria was behind the horrible attack in the suburbs of the capital, which they totally condemn.

    During the present G20 summit meeting in St Petersburg, Russia, the 11 countries including Spain collectively made a public statement to Al-Assad, calling for an international explanation and saying that breaking world laws by using chemical weapons would not be tolerated and could not be repeated.

    Those who commit such atrocities should be held accountable, said the statement, released by the Whitehouse.

    The 11 countries of the G20 say chemical warfare dramatically reduces peoples safety and is totally unacceptable under any circumstances.

    They have called for the United Nations Safety Commission to give its verdict as soon as possible on a possible attack on Syria.

    Spain is not likely to be affected by any decision to wage war on Syria, since the general consensus of the G20 has been not to send troops to the country meaning no Spanish soldiers would be deployed there.

    And minister of defence Pedro Morens has denied claims that the USA had approached Spain and asked them to lend troops for a military mission.

    British PM David Cameron has accepted being outvoted over commencing hostilities towards Syria, and decided against it.

    US president Barack Obama has assured that a conflict with Syria would not be another Iraq or Afghanistan and is thinking more along the lines of sending air forces to the Middle East, bombing the arsenal of chemical weapons, and withdrawing immediately.

    The G20, Spain included, has admitted that the Syria crisis cannot be solved by military means and are hoping for a political solution.

    They have condemned the violations of basic human rights taking place in the Arab country en masse.

    Morens said this statement by the G20 was not a declaration of war but a global message saying the use of chemical bombs was not acceptable - not because the G20 has just said so, but because international laws say so, the Spanish defence minister clarified.

    He said Spain was in support of this worldwide stance shown by other G20 members South Korea, France, Italy, Saudi Arabia, the UK, the USA, Japan, Turkey, Canada and Australia.

    LEGAL CORNERwITH MICHAEL DAVIES, ABOGADO/SOLICITORIf you wish us to print an article about a particular topic, please e-mail [email protected]


    Michael Davies is a Spanish Abogado and has been practicing law in Almera since 1993. He is member of the Law societies of Almera and Madrid and has offices in Mojacar and Almeria High Street.


    A . Up to recently this was a small tax when you sold or inherited , but now it can be a high amount and needs to be considered before the transaction. It is charged on the transfer of ownership of a property by sale, inheritance etc. . This tax is a local tax charged by each municipality on the increase in value of Urban land in its own district land and is distinct from Capital Gains Tax. It is important to realize that the tax is charged on land alone, not on the buildings that may stand on the land.

    The rates of tax are set by each municipality and can vary widely between neighbouring municipalities. The tax is based on the increase in the official, that is to say the Catastral, value of the land which a property occupies. This is the same value that is used to set your local property tax or IBI and can be found on the bill for your IBI issued by your local ayuntamiento each year and is shown as the valor del suelo. The actual price at which a property changes hands, or the value attributed to it if is the subject of a gift or inheritance is irrelevant.

    Calculation: The Plusvalia is calculated as a function of the catastral value of the land and the number of years of ownership (up to a maximum of 20 years). The higher the catastral value and the number of years of ownership, the higher the tax.

    Plusvalia tax = Catastral value of the land x Yearly percentage of values increase x Number of years of ownership x Tax rate

    The yearly percentage of values increase and the tax rate are fixed by the Town Halls. They are established locally. Up to now, when a Town Hall had updated the catastral values, usually with really high increases of the values compared to the existing ones, article 107.3 of the Law had established that on the following five years after the revision of the values, the Town Halls had to apply a deduction of 40 to 60 % to the catastral value. If a Town Hall made not contemplation of this rule teh law established an automatic deduction of 60%. However new Law passed in 2012 has changed that situation allowing the Town Halls to eliminate those deductions, which is why a loto of people are suddenly paying much

    higher rates and find themselves with an unfairly high plusvalaa tax when they sell. On a sale of a property it is the responsibility of the seller to pay the tax, but if the seller fails to pay this responsibility may be passed to the buyer, who would then have to recuperate the money form this seller. If the property is being inherited or is the subject of some other type of gift it is the beneficiary or recipient of the property who is liable to pay the tax.

    Certain transactions are exempt from the Plusvalia Tax, the main ones which are likely to affect the general public are the transfer of property between spouses who are divorcing, or to children to comply with Court judgments, and aportaciones or transfers to companies in which spouses are the only shareholders which may be used for tax planning.

    The amount of the tax that will be charged on a transaction will depend firstly on the Catastral value of the land which the property occupies, and secondly on the length of time since it last changed hands. If you are selling an individual house which stands on a large plot which you have owned for a considerable length of time the amount of the Plusvalia Tax could be many thousands of Euros. On the other hand, as the tax is charged on the value of land alone, the amount of Plusvalia Tax charged on a flat in a block which you have not owned for very long the tax may be quite modest.

    For those of you who are considering rearranging your financial affairs to take advantage of tax planning schemes, the amount of Plusvalia tax that may be due is one of a number of elements, which include the Notary and other fees that may be payable, which you need to consider when balancing the costs and benefits of these schemes. Depending on the amount of Plusvalia, it may be cheaper to make a gift of the property rather than enter into more complex arrangements with higher Notary and other fees.

    The time for paying the Plusvalia Tax is within 30 days of a sale or gift between living people, or 6 months of the date of death on an inheritance.

    Your town hall can advise you of the amount of Plusvalia that may be payable on a transaction involving your property, or in many cases it is possible to obtain the calculation on line, but as I always write in concluding these articles, if in doubt take professional advice.

    the flu jabflu vaccination by injection, commonly known as the flu jab is available every year to

    protect adults (and some children) at risk of flu and its complications. flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own

    within a week.however, flu can be more severe in certain people such as: anyone over the age of 65 pregnant women children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart

    or respiratory disease) children and adults with weakened immune systems anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of

    flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so its recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to protect them.

    how the flu jab worksstudies have shown that the flu jab definitely works and will help prevent you getting

    the flu. however, it wont stop all flu viruss and the level of protection may vary between people, so its not a 100% guarantee that youll be flu-free.

    over time, protection from the injected flu vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains often change. so, new flu vaccines are produced each year which is why people advised to have the flu jab need it every year too.

    flu jab side effectsserious side effects of the injected flu vaccine are very rare. you may have a slight

    temperature and aching muscles for a couple of days after having the jab, and your arm may be a bit sore where you were injected.

    When to have a flu jab?the best time to have a flu vaccine is in the autumn, from the beginning of october to

    early november.the flu jab for 2013/14each year, the viruses that are most likely to cause flu are identified in advance and

    vaccines are made to match them as closely as possible. the vaccines are recommended by the World health organization (Who).

    the 2013/14 vaccine protects against three types of flu virus. this years flu jab protects against:

    h1n1 the strain of flu that caused the swine flu pandemic in 2009 h3n2 a strain of flu that can infect birds and mammals and was active in 2011 b/Massachusetts/2 a strain of flu that was active in 2012 is there anyone who shouldnt have the flu jab?Most adults can have the injected flu vaccine, but you should avoid it

    if you have had a serious allergic reaction to a flu jab in the past.People who have egg allergy may be at increased risk of reaction to

    the injectable flu vaccine because some flu jabs are made using eggs.


    juDGE ORDERS DIVORCING COupLE TO SpLIT HOME DOWN THE MIDDLEA judge in Seville has taken the principle of

    divide and rule to a new frontier in a divorce case settlement by ordering a couple to split their home down the middle, despite the property belonging to the parents of the husband.

    In her ruling, the family court judge noted that the 250-square-meter apartment is in reality two conjoined abodes, and with minor adaptions can be easily turned into 2 independent ones, of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

    According to El Pais, the judge stated that as no action had been ta
