I have discovered that I have got several payments that have gone through twice and the bank just don't want to know, even though it was their fault due to a system error. I now have to contact all the companies that I paid myself and try to get the second payment reversed - surely it is down to the bank if they were in error. I am now looking for a different bank.
Hi all I read the info page on what is required to open a bank account in The Netherlands. We are looking to move to Heerlen to be near our daughter,partner and grandson, we also have a son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren in Cologne, so the hassle is this if we buy a property over there we don't have an address ( except our daughter's) we don't have a residence permit, so how do we open a bank account so we can transfer money to purchase a property.
I am trying to make sense of the fees which Paypal charge on customer transactions on the website (the customer doesn't get charged but the business using Paypal does) in EUR and GBP. There doesn't seem to be a set percentage as I have tested this theory out with various sales but the amounts are always a different percentage. Does anybody know whether there is a percentage of the sale PLUS a set sum?
My husband does quite a lot of carpentry as a hobby, and recently he's been asked by people to make articles of furniture and toys, so he's thinking of organising himself in a more businesslike way. He will presumably need to register with the tax authorities. Anything else?
