Hi all!Just joined and already having a question:I live in Mallorca most of the time but am not "resident".I need a bank account to pay rent and to receive payments (ebay trading and web/consulting services) from within Europa including(!) from Spain.Anyone know any nice & decent banker who speaks English and where I could get such an account?Banca March is out of the question (I guess) because as far I was able to read in their terms, they do offer an account like I need but only for residents. Other account types are available, but with those you can't receive transfers FROM WITHIN Spain.Thanx for your suggestions!

Hi, I would really appreciate a bit of help or guidance please. I am starting a business which will run short boat cruises along the Mallorcan coast during the holiday season (May - September). I intend to live on the boat while I am operating in Mallorca which means that I will not have a permanent Spanish address to obtain my IME Number. Also, because of the nature of my business, does it have to be a Spanish registered business at all, or could I conduct business under my British company? And finally, what are the formalities and procedures that I have to follow to start trading in Mallorca considering my situation? Thanks, Scott

Has anyone had problems getting through to English speaking staff? I recently had to claim on my policy and tried to call to speak to someone in English. I was constantly cutt off or told that there was no one who could speak English right now. I would hate to know what would happen in a more serious situation. Luckily mine wasnt. Is this a common problem? mark
