Hi Folks, 

Now the election results are known, Brexit I believe is a forgone conclusion; we have received two articles from our sponsors Blevins Franks which I believe now are important to all members. Please click on the word "Finance" above this article to read those articles.  

In our lives there are times when we should take a moment to reflect and think about our future. NOW is the time to think about the consequences of Brexit. We will be a third country in European terms and I know a lot of people are chasing paperwork before Brexit happens. NIE, Residencia & padron are papers that need to be obtained and if you are exiting Spain for any reason, I advise people to take these papers with them in case there are problems when you return.  

As detailed in the December email, there is an article on changing your nationality to Spanish, and I will publish any papers that will help members during this turbulent time.

Tax after Brexit
Friday, 23 August 2019

The Consulate Brexit talk
Monday, 11 March 2019
 The British Consulate will be giving a 20 minute talk on procedures and importance of different registration processes, touching on health care and any updates from Brexit, talking through the deal and no deal scenarios and consequences.

Depending on the size of the crowd, the Consulate will take Q&As straight from the audience or individually afterwards to tackle issues on the spot. They do say that they will not leave an event until every query has been clarified.  

The Brexit consulate meeting has had to change venue and now will now be held in the Azahar Costa Celebration rooms, Ctra. antigua de la barrosa, km 3,11130 Chiclana de la Frontera, Cádiz; The room is available from 10-30 for the 11-15am start on Friday 15th March.

You will be able to buy drinks beforehand and that will help ChiFRA to reduce the cost of hiring this venue. There is no need to book as there is sufficient space for all.   



Brexit Financial Planning
Monday, 15 October 2018

Blevins Franks have sent me an article for publication; just click on the Blevins Franks logo above to read the full article, but what caught my eye is reproduced below:- 

It is important to regularly review your financial planning. Regardless of Brexit, your circumstances and objectives can change over time, so what is right for you now may not be so suitable in years to come. 

Now has never been a better time to build a good relationship with a locally-based financial adviser who can keep you informed of developments that affect you specifically as an expatriate. They can explain the cross-border implications and help you plan if and when you need to take action so you can continue enjoying your chosen lifestyle in Spain

Good advice - Blevins Franks will attend the meeting on 1st November so by all means, come along and question them.


Autumn update 2018
Sunday, 14 October 2018

Well it's been a long cold summer not getting past "warm" until August. We have our AGM and general meeting on the 1st November at the Azahar Costa Celebration rooms in Los Gallos. All members are welcome to come along and claim their first drink free. 

I read an article recently about the tram; notwithstanding that if the tram is not running on the 31st march 2019 the Junta de Andalucia has to repay 100 million euros to the EU, the sixth and last tram will be delivered sometime in November after final tests are carried out in Valladolid. Chiclana will then run test before making the train live; my bet says there WILL be something up and running on the 31st March   


Blevins Franks Articles
Wednesday, 20 June 2018

Blevins Franks have sent me two articles on Brexit, that dreaded word. The first article 

Preparing for Brexit and residency in Spain  gives us comfort in that we will still be able to live in Spain afterwards.

The second article Spain cracks down on Gibraltar “residency” gives an insight into "how the other half live" and also tells us the rules about being tax resident in Spain.

You can read both articles by clicking on the Blevins Franks logo in the top right corner of this page
