Moving to Menorca 2020 - Our Journey

Post by benpieke2022 » December 29th, 2021, 3:21 pm

Hi All,

We moved to Menorca from an EU country in 2020 and are absolutely loving it here. To assist others that have the same idea I have documented the (administrative) actions we have taken in a document. Things like registering with the authorities, getting a house and car, taxes, school for my kid and some insurance things are covered. I will keep it up-to-date as good as possible when things change and/or we tackle other things while living here.

Happy holidays!

Welcome to the site :grin:

That's certainly a very comprehensive document which i'm sure our members moving over there will find extremely useful.
I'll stop moaning, when you give me a pay rise this :arms: big

Thanks Susie! I corrected the title of the post and I think it needs to be approved again. Also spotted a "Moving to Menorca" subforum so can you maybe move the post there?

Happy last days of the year!

He, I made a typo in the title, corrected that and now the post needs to be re-approved by an admin. Until that happens the original post is not visible. I guess my account is too new to be able to post without approval for each post...

Thanks for a very helpful report.

Just one point on buying a car - anyone doing so needs to set up the annual car tax with the Town Hall to make sure it is paid. I missed this and it could have caused difficulties!!

Good point, will amend the document. We had two different situations:
1. With our car it was done automatically through the change of ownership process, they informed the ayuntamiento and we already had setup automatic debits for other taxes.
2. For our motorbike we indeed had to walk into the ayuntamiento with the papers and take care of the tax setup.

Once it's setup it will be an auto debit every year.

Thanks for the feedback and happy 2022 for later.
