Hi Kwelbi, Thank you for this & sorry if I misled anybody - but I have a house in Marrakech & have never been asked to pay a property tax! I only recently had full title confirmed: should I now begin worrying about this please? Re sales tax, I have never seen this identified anywhere on bills, receipts etc: so are all advertised prices tax included?
kwelbi replied most recently with:
Hi Farah,just like to point out that there are property and sales taxes in Morocco.Property taxes are levied by each municipality and can vary somewhat.25% of rental value for a primary propery,10% for a secondary property, with properties outside the urban area around 6%.Sales tax is called TVA and levied at 7%,14% or 20% with some basic items zero rated.Hope this info is useful to you ,regards.

Hello everyone , Iam a local novice English Teacher from Marrakech , I would like to meet with new friends ``English native speakers `` or ``non natives`` living in my city Marrakech . Thank you .
fouadcouchsurfer replied most recently with:
The area that you stay in depends on what you prefer and nowadays there are no bad areas Marrakech all Marrakech is safe. some people like to stay in the medina so that they are in amongst all of the action they can walk from their home to the must-see places in Marrakech. Other people prefer to stay in Gueliz where they can escape from the noise of medina other people prefer to live in or near rural areas or countrysides , the prices of housing in old medina are less tham Gueliz. you really just have to decide what is best for you.

Hi, Marrakech is very nice and peaceful city, I would suggest to avoid the busy a areas like, bab doukala,massira, daoudiate, try to search in private residence it 's more secure, try casablanca route or targa area close to to gueliz. If you need more information or help, contact me via my private email or send me message via berber. Good luck

I am moving to Morocco in early April from Sheffield, What is the most cheapest efficient and reliable way to transport a van load of household goods and furniture?
moroccanmanonline replied most recently with:
Whatever you do, do not use HUNTS INTERNATIONAL. Have not a clue about Moroccan Customs procedures. Cost me 12,000dh to clear my household goods Did not know that customs requires everything in FRENCH.
kwelbi replied most recently with:
Hi,if you have a van then you can drive it down yourself.Could be a problem with customs depending on how much stuff you have.If you have a big amount of valuable stuff better to get it shipped using a transport company with a manifest for the customs.There are a lot of Moroccan minibuses and vans going back and forth to Morocco with passengers and goods who operate in the "grey' zone.If you make some enquiries with the Moroccan community in Sheffield somebody should be able to point you in the right direction.Caveat emptor.Good luck and be super careful who you deal with.

My wife and I are 56 and 58 respectively, but behave like 30 something's. We are moving to Agadir in Sept 2015 and were wondering if there are any English speaking couples/clubs that we could met maybe weekly. We enjoy walking, Ten Pin Bowling, going out for meals, exploring Morocco and having fun. Are there any like minded people out there, open to meeting/socializing weekly?

FarahL replied to the thread Looking for Organic/Bio area in Morocco on the Morocco forum:
jayspring321 initially posted:
UK resident looking to move to an organic/bio area in Morocco to potentially move to. If anyone has information about areas or regions which there is no chemical spraying and pesticide use, it would be a great help.
FarahL replied most recently with:
Hi There, I cannot give you a direct response to your query but I can give you some indicative information, which I hope will help. Firstly, I don't believe that there is an established organic/bio market in Morocco that you can research. This is a developing country where the average annual salary is £1500 pa. in Marrakech, as an example, there is only one specialist vegetarian restaurant and I have never seen any type of product for sale with an 'organic' or 'bio' label, even in the largest of hypermarkets. A great deal of agriculture is on a very small scale; farmers bring their freshly harvested produce into Marrakech on a daily basis & the variety of shape & size of vegetables would lead me to conclude that most are not using any (effective) pesticides. There is some large scale growing of fruit & salad vegetables under glass for export, but this is only established in a fraction of the country. Further, the topography & soil in many regions, together with a historically meat based cuisine, mean that the keeping of animals & growing of fodder for them is a major activity - but again, mostly with individual farmers producing at a level slightly more than subsistence. Again, therefore, I would suspect that these farmers would not be able to afford chemical products to help their activity - but, in any event, their overriding concern in many areas is to have sufficient & consistent water supply. I would therefore suspect that a great deal of the country would be de facto 'organic' or 'bio'. Further,in terms of cuisine, most food consumed has not been processed in any way and could not have a shorter journey in terms of miles carried. Larger scale farming tends to be based in the Middle Atlas area - which is verdant & little known by foreigners, and northern Morocco, which is closest to european export markets. Sorry if this is all a bit oblique, but I hope it's better than nothing...
