Lanzarote Football Las Zocas 0 UD Lanzarote 1

It has been five long months since the Rojillos tasted victory on the road but thanks to an assist by British lad Louis Kennedy and a finish from Yaco late on, that terrible statistic has come to an end.


After last week’s disappointing home defeat Rojillos manager Adolfo Pérez decided to introduce two junior players into the starting line up, defender Acaymo and striker Echedey Gómez.

The Tenerife side one place above Lanzarote prior to the match began the better of the two sides. The Rojillos defence was strong but upfront only looked dangerous on set pieces. The visitors were content with the game scoreless going into the half time break.

The home side kept up the same tempo in the second period but as Lanzarote grew in confidence as they began to claw their way into the game.

UK TV Channels In Spain

The recent move of the satellites that transmit TV signals has caused plenty of consternation for people here in Lanzarote. Over the last few years, the size of dish required and the cost of getting regular English Language TV channels has become harder and harder. The best option these days seems to be using internet based services like Ray Allum’s UK TV Service.


If you still want to sit down in an evening and see “What’s on” that’s probably the best way to do so.

But increasingly, people are moving towards “On demand” television. Basically, that means choosing what you want to watch and when to watch it. Got an hour to spare? Sit down and watch a couple of episodes of your favourite series! Want to while the afternoon away on the couch in your PJ’s? Stream a movie!

There are many services available which let you download or stream TV series and films, and Amazon has now joined the fray with their “Instant Video” service.  read more »

Tax Resident in Lanzarote

In 2012 the Spanish government passed legislation that required any foreign person resident in Spain to declare assets held abroad totalling in excess of €50,000 euros or £44,000 pounds.


The legislation was brought in by Royal Decree Law 1558/2012 and published in the Official State Bulletin BOE-A-2012-14452 on the 24th of November 2012 to prevent tax evasion, carrying heavy penalties with a minimum fine of €10,000 euros if the Modelo 720 (Declaración informativa sobre bienes y derechos situados en el extranjero) was not completed, or submitted incorrectly.

Residents were initially required to make the declaration about their assets (with total value over £44,000) owned outside of Spain at any time during the year 2012 including bank accounts, property, shares, insurance policies etc during 2013, even if they had been disposed of, or transferred before the 31st December 2012.

The first asset declaration had be presented between the1st of February and 30th April 2013. Foreign residents in Spain need only present a subsequent one between the 1st of January and 31st of March, if their assets abroad increase by more than €20,000 euros £17,000 pounds in the year, in relation to their former declaration.
