DARTS NIGHT PRESENTATION

Tuesday April 1st for some of us was All Fools Day and this year was no different as fifty or so darts fools gathered at Las Gemelas for the annual darts presentation night.

After a grueling and exciting season of darts the competing teams gathered to celebrate a close finish to the season. Never have so many highly tuned (darts) athletes been gathered in one place since the London Olympics. Trophies and medals, amongst other achievement awards, were presented during the evening for the winning teams and individual winners in various categories. In true darts fashion plenty of beer was consumed and excellent food provided by the hosts for the evening, Lydia and Isidro from Las Gemelas.

HELPING HANDS

Most people are pretty good at getting their civil residency from the National Police and are keen to show that they are not just passing trade. However, not everyone is aware that there is more to residency than your sheet of green paper (Civil Resident).

For the fiscal residency you need a Certificate from the Tax Office and for this you have to declare every year your Income Tax in Spain. Civil residency is, in fact, pretty useless when it comes to financial matters. For example, when capital gains or inheritance tax is due - if you can't prove you are a fiscal resident then you can end up paying non-resident taxes and there are big differences between the two.
