Talking Greetings from Marmaris

Hi, We are Cindy and Graham and have lived in
Marmaris for eighteen months. We often browse Turkish living and thought it was about time we introduced ourselves. We live all year round having sold up lock, stock and barrel in England.. no regrets.. yet... We have many experiences eg:buying our home, residency, shipping furniture, opting out of the uk tax system, council tax and many more useless bits of information that may be of some use to anyone....

Re: Greetings from Marmaris

Hello Cindy and Graham and welcome to this addictive forum. We hope to move over when we can get our property here in the UK sold.

Can you tell me which removal firm you used, we will not be bringing big items with us just small household items.




Sue and Chris

Re: Greetings from Marmaris

hi Sue and Chris, We used pickfords removals. We shipped all our furniture over, although you can ship a few items. you would have to wait until the container was full before it will be shipped.. i advise you not to bring anything that has a receiver eg:satellite system, television, radio or video/dvd recorder as you will have to pay collosal bandroll tax. We ended up paying much more than these items were worth, also, you need residency to ship goods over and they must be for your own use. if you dont get a five year residency then you will need to ask permission to use your goods every time you renew your residency. After five years you can keep it here indefinately, also you will get the bandroll tax you paid at this point. there is nothing to pay on white goods.. hope you understand all this, its pretty straight forward, honest,lol. Good luck with your move...

Thanks for that, if we take a dvd recorder, radio they would go in a case, the only thing I can't get a straight answer re the tax is for small electrical kitchen goods - did you have to pay any tax on those?

Re: Greetings from Marmaris

no tax on any kitchen goods or white goods, fridge/freezers, kettles, toasters, microwaves, washers or driers are all exempt.
