  1. Have been trying to connect new tv to Livebox 2 wifi. Have entered the security code and then get message that tv can't access it. Have had no problem before with laptops or printers etc. Any advice welcomed.
  2. See http://services.completefrance.com/forums/completefrance-forums/cs/forums/3521743/ShowPost.aspx Hope this helps.
  3. Re: Another question re Form 2047K Dividends Sorry to ask another question on this but I think my brain has seized up and am getting more confused the more I read through the form. Have completed details re dividends in Section 2 but confused re Section 7 and which lines to fill in. Looked at last year's form and for some reason ( that I cannot remember) did not enter anything in that section. Also why do they ask which declarant in Section 7?

  6. Impossible to say not knowing what cars you are considering. Look on this website for unbiased reviews of whatever car you are thinking of buying. http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar?/ Look at their road tests. http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/
  7. We went to our local CPAM and explained what we needed, ie attestation for 2012 and 2013 (for reclamation of CSG). The lady printed out the latest attestation and then added a handwritten note confirming that we had been covered by S1 since 2009 without a break. She signed the attestation and stamped it. This was accepted by the tax office. Didn't take very long at all and we came away with exactly what we needed.

  9. Went to tax office this morning and asked why we had been charged social charges on savings and investment income this year as we had received reimbursement of charges paid for 2012, 2013 and 2014. Showed the Inspector all our documentation for this , including the relevant official statements regarding holders of S1s not being liable to social charges on savings and investment income. He tapped away at the computer, printed out a degrevement and said we would receive a revised Avis in the post. Result! I was sure that he would say that we would have to pay and then reclaim.
  10. This is from another forum but is important so please don’t delete it. Quote I have received a message from a user so shall copy and paste it here as it concerns the return of your votes – Dont know if this has already been noted here but as it is such an important topic I am copying anyway reports from other sites ‘Another hot topic – just come back from La Poste in the village – postmistress advising that the ‘Free Postage’ envelope that people will be sending back their votes in, will be ignored by La Poste as they will not be paid for them. ‘Poste Priorite’ is only 1 euro per envelope. Please share’ Sorry this is a bit lengthy but for those people who have already posted their postal votes in the post boxes, before this all came to light, we have been down to our local sorting office this morning, they couldn’t have been more helpful, went away and checked all the letters waiting for processing but couldn’t find them, but said that a stamp is definitely needed. So, I have tried to ring my local council in UK, no reply so I rang the House of Commons, they gave me the number for the Electoral Commission which is 0044 333 1031928. I have tried to explain to them that the problem is France wide not just our department in 53 and that why should we in effectively lose our vote for following the voting instructions to the letter. I have also asked that we be granted a ‘proxy’ vote instead. I am waiting for a call back from them. If your vote won’t be counted please ring the electoral Commission and/or your local council in the UK. We have enough MPs in Brussels, at least one of them should have been given the job of making sure that the postage paid envelopes should be honoured -or simpler still – they should have just sent them out in ordinary envelopes then we would have stamped them anyway. Thank you all for taking the time to read. I hope we get something sorted for us, our futures could be altered quite considerably by the outcome of this referendum.’ Thought you all ought to know.
  11. Have now received repayment of Social Charges into our bank account. However, no interest has been included. Before we head down to the tax office or email them regarding this just wondered if the interest is paid separately.
  12. Have just received a letter to say that they agree to pay the amount claimed minus the 2% for 2012 and 2013 plus interest. if we disagree we have 2 months to say so. We don't disagree so should we send them a letter to this effect in the hope that we will get the reimbursement sooner rather than later? A big THANK YOU to Parsnips without whom we would never have managed to put this claim together.
