Re: Post office

Just do it yourself. Don't go through 3rd party websites. What was the reason for the delay?
Birds , got into engine , so the flight had return to take off field in U.K. A replacement plane was sent bring the passengers down to Paphos .

Flight delay compensation

My flight was delayed yesterday , we were nearly 6 hours late arriving at our destination airport .

There are a lot of websites claiming they can get you compensation , in our case about £300 each .

Has anyone ever done it , or are they scam sites ?

I think the reference to Akrotiri was jokingly meant , that bhc staff would be flown out on military planes .

The Cyprus tax return says declare your world wide income , so I would have thought yes . But I am no tax expert .

Re: Proton Beam Cancer Therapy programme BBC1

Just watched it now , I used to work at Christie , until I took early retirement in 2006 . I was a maintenance electrician .

In the tv show I saw somebody I used to know .

Re: Post office

Thanks bromerzz , yes I am aware this goes on , I have seen sellers saying they will put a low value on the label to avoid tax .

However my question is what if the goods in the package do not match your invoice ?

Eg a scam trader has sent you low value goods .

Re: Post office

Thanks Photolady , I was thinking they might say , wrong goods have been sent , pay the duty and take it away and sort it yourself .

They know the price of the item because goods sent have to have a value on the label .

If an item arrives that they think you have to pay import duty on , they call you in and open the package in front of you .

If the item is not what you ordered do you have to accept it ?
