I believe if the authorities say you have overstayed / not declared income / not paid taxes / failed to conform with regulations, etc then it is up you prove otherwise.

I understand from a gestor friend there are many people who have not registered and not paid their dues. Brexit may mean problems for some !
''Brexit may mean problems for some'', i suspect there is quite a bit of 'puckering up'' at the moment within the expat communities.

They haven't overstayed per se. They have failed to register, if indeed they haven't registered.


When or if Brexit happens that will all change of course.
I always thought it was a good citizenís duty to inform the authorities when others are breaking the law. Perhaps times have changed, which will be welcomed by law breakers.

Would you inform in order to assist the police or pretend you donít know or care?

Naka. Nothing personal but I get the impresiůn you want your neighbour to be in trouble. However the general opinion here is that no crime has been committed.

Sounds as if you want us to get involved in a neighbour despite. No thanks mate.

While staying here for 8 years without registering is technically against the law, they wouldn't be jailed nor deported, so one indeed wonders why the OP is so interested. At most they would be fined.

Of course they should have been doing tax returns here in that time - & might well have been doing so. Indeed they might even have registered.


Brexit is of course relevant because if/when it happens, Brits will get their passports stamped, so anyone who has been here for a long time without registering will find that they won't be able to come & go as freely as previously, & that at some stage passport control will deny them entry, if they have stayed more than 90 in the previous 180 days.

That won't affect them right now. But eventually it will.


I'll leave it up to the OPs conscience as to whether or not to report them.

Well if itís only technically against the law no need to bother, but I am not sure what that term means. Anyway I will not bother and take your good advice.

If I were your neighbour I could probably quite easily find a reason to denounce you

Depends who chucks the first rock, I suppose.
