General Discussion / Who here needs a massage table for free ?
« Last post by Patricia on February 17, 2021 »
Hello everyone,
I am going back to France soon and will be back next year.
Is there anyone here need a mobile massage table for 10 months ? Or someone who can keep it for me for free in their garage ?
I also have an electrical blanket.
I will be back around novembre, decembre and will probably need it then for 2 months.
Thanks your for your help
Patricia

Angiebabes, on the first & second transaction the developer paid any capital gains & my companies accounts checked this out with HMRC, also I have since had a dispute with HMRC over company pension tax manly because 2 governments departments would not talk to each other, after sending them the documents that we had paid the tax, they sent us a full apology.

On the second property yes we had to pay the 3% retention which our lady agreed a fee of £4170.00.

Not everything is black & white over there, our friends sold one of their apartments & found out they had not paid any ebe tax for 18 years, but the government were only allowed to claim back the last 5 years, we were also told by a resident many years ago, never pay the government tax unless you are sure you owe it because you will never get it back.

Lucy, you say my arguments are childish, again read my post, it was you that said in your own words the pound reached 1.2047 in ONE DAY all I said it has not been strong for years which my figures prove, if you care to check.

My wife has checked the rate we got at that time from various restaurants & supermarkets & as I said we get business rate exchange, the most we obtained was 1.1470. What markets post as a rate does not mean you will get that rate.

My posts are not childish they are FACTUAL.

Angiebabes we were lucky on both occaisions the developer was desperate to repurchase both the apartments, the first one he picked up all the taxes & costs, the second one, our friends who owned an Est agency had a very smart lady & it cost us about 5K tax & fees, we thought not bad on a 160k sale & she managed to get some of it back about 1k, unfortunately our friends have sold the agency & moved to the mainland.

But you are personally liable for capital gains tax in UK! Irrespective of what the developer paid, if HMRC catch up with you, youíll have to pay it. The estate agent you mention also didnít cover your capital gains tax, just the retention of 3%. If you get caught youíll have to pay up.

Unhappy - I have no intention to get drawn into one of your childish arguments, I will just say that historical interest rates are available on the internet for you to check and the pound was stronger only this time last year.

Give it a few years, but I have no doubt, once thinks get on course and we are fully trading as an independent sovereign nation again, the pound will be trading back near it's previous dizzy heights!

Lucy, perhaps you should read my post again, I said it had not been that strong for years in fact the last time it reached 1.20 was 30/06 to 01/07 2016 in my term that is years.

The best rate after the crash in 2008 was about 1.45 in 2015.
