Hi all. I wonder if any of you can give me your opinion on this. I am a UK national and I come to work and live in Cyprus each year for 8 months (March - Oct). I then return to the UK for the winter. As I am only working & living temporarily each time, I've had no problem with residency or working restrictions. How do you think I might be affected if Britain decides to leave the EU? Would I face all sorts of immigration/work permit problems as a non-EU national, even though I am only residing/working for 8 months each year. All comments appreciated. Thanks.

When a car has two names on the Log Book and one person dies, does the car become the property of the living person or does the car have to be sold so that half the cost can go to the dead person's estate?

Hi, has anyone had any success in reclaiming Defence Tax under the new law passed in July 2015? When my Fixed Account statement for 3 months up to end October 2015 still had Defence Tax deducted, I asked my bank how to get this stopped and I got the usual "Cyprus shrug" and a curt "Ask at main branch at end of year". So today I went to the main branch and the girl serving denied all knowledge, as I expected, but she did refer me to a chap who admitted knowing about the new law, but said it was nothing to do with the bank, and to go to Government Office, which I assume he meant the Tax Office. However, I have claimed on my Tax return for 5 years now for a rebate because I have a low income so should have only paid 3% Defence Tax, but have never had anything paid back to me. I am surprised no one seems to be talking about this issue, even on here, because as usual they try to get out of everything by giving us the runaround until we just give up. Any advice welcome......Nigel Howarth!!!

Does anyone have suitable wording for a codicil, to make a declaration that we wish the laws of our nationality (British) to apply to the distribution of our assets in Cyprus – which will mean that the Cypriot laws on forced heirship will not apply.

We came to live in our apartment in 2015 and found out we don't have to pay the tax as we are under the limit and our place is in both our names as we have been to the property tax office my question is can we claim back  that money from leptos. I know Nigel is very knowledgeable on these situations. Thank  you trav

I know that 100 percent a cypriot national can travel for example to Greece on a EU identity card, but can a british citazen travel with one to the U.K. i think the answer is probably NO but im just asking because my passport has run out.

I know this might sound creepy but since death is unavoidable and has a direct link to life I would like to know what are the options regarding funeral for a non religious person (i.e. non Christian or non Muslim in case of Cyprus)? basically I know that there is no crematorium in Cyprus and cremation abroad is not an option so I was wondering if the diseased person did not want to have a Christian/Muslim ceremony (actually no ceremony at all) and did not want to be buried in religious cemeteries, can all of the above be skipped, can a person be buried on his own property/plot of land if this is his/her wish in the will?; are there other burial places for these cases? In addition I was wondering can someone make a ‘living will’ where he/she can specify what are his/her wishes in case of critical health situation i.e. comma, ‘significant’ brain or vital organ damage? Where the person cannot communicate and express what he/she would like to be done in such cases. Thank you in advance
