I pay my road tax and nearly all bills and taxes online as well. JccSmart is not very elegant, but it works pretty good for many years now. And MR-from-NG why did you even accept to take a display unit? Not only I will never buy a display unit, but before I pay I will check the box and make sure it was never opened before. But if there is a problem and you return the item the same or the next day then they will take it back. It is not like Amazon that you can return something to them a month later - no questions asked... but I never heard of this "no returns expected and no refunds offered" policy ... unless we are talking about underwear!

Now to your question, it'll be difficult to secure employment in your sector and wages may not suit your life style, but the quality of life in Cyprus is second to none and you cannot put a price on that. Good luck all the same.


Erm I don't want to be picky or anything but I have toyed with the idea of Cyprus for a while. My conclusion is that I will in no way want to live there because of lifestyle. Lifestyle is pretty good though so yes Cyprus is ok in that regard. BUT...

Lifestyle in Cyprus is inadequate for me and what I am use to. It is by no means "second to none". There are quite a few countries with a superior lifestyle, and a means to earn money to enjoy an even better lifestyle. Standards of living can be far superior with better education opportunities, better healthcare, better roads, better infrastructure, more competitive marketplace, better services, better transport as well as have the same Mediterranean Type climate, sun, surf, food, wine etc etc the list goes on and on.

Plus, Cypriot Cities are disgusting! All of them! So dirty (litter everywhere) plus all the disgusting box type building with little thought to architecture and innovation. Sorry but you might as well live in Beirut. Cypriot villages however are fantastic. So many beautiful traditional villages. Cypriot villages are the ducks nuts for me.

I have been fortunate enough to have visited quite a number of different countries, and I would rather live in those than in Cyprus without naming which.

Having said that, Cyprus is pretty good if you don't have to work there and earn a living or run a business, because then it is the absolute pits! Probably a good enough place to retire is what I would say.

But UK is also the pits to live in. I don't like the lifestyle in the UK either. No way can I permanently live in the UK, but I could stay there for a couple of years (that would be my limit).

UK is the pits! YUK, YUK ...... I pity the poor souls that live there.

The latest Cyprus unemployment figures (for December) were 15.7%:

The situation is still dire here, I am afraid.

:D :D Good point Sotos. To be perfectly honest and you may find this hard to believe but I'm quite an easy going person. I like going with the flow, I don't want to make things difficult. Furthermore I'm a businessman and deal with the general public and I've often had to offer my customers the displayed items in my shop with which they had no problems accepting.
But you have got a point, if there is a sealed box that should always be first choice. Anyway, this could only happen in a Mickey Mouse place like the occupied north. I'm sure consumers are better protected in the ROC.
