Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

That´s a very large chip you have on your shoulder fraggle and it´s not the first time. You know nothing of my military service and I´m not about to spell it out here.
Regardless, bye all, it´s off this forum for me!

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

There´re no strategic threats to Chile and in the unlikely event it ever happens it´ll evolve over time. If it ever came from a motivated, lightly armed and experienced foe, Chile, with zero military experience of war for many generations would need to pull in suitably qualified advisors and listen ...

It´s probably worth that in scrap metal.
This makes an interesting read:

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

No you hold back the final 50% and IVA till the factura is delivered, that´s the lesson learned.
But that doesn´t help for example someone on a business trip who has to pay in full for their accommodation on the spot. Most hotels and accommodation providers want full payment up front.

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

Simple... Wanting goods or services you get a price and ask, "Do you issue facturas?" They reply, "Yes" and often want a 50% deposit or payment for materials so you´re committed. It´s Illegal where I come from, the max is 10%. They deliver, you pay them and then it can go pear shaped in various ways...

Colonel Klink and Sargent Schultz are most welcome to play with our data. It´ll keep their minds off the Eastern Front.

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

If they´ll accept credit cards, which many don´t because they hate the high commissions and monthly fees. Though Transbank finally has some competition.

Out of the UK, no 30.000 monthly fee, lower commission (2.5%) and it´s a great system. You buy the machine and it´s yours.

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

"I cannot understand the mentality behind not issuing a Factura and keeping the IVA. You only get do that once; the client will take his future business elsewhere, to somewhere more honest. But it's not uncommon." It beats me too. It´s happened 3 times to us but the most ridiculous one was the 2 out...

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

Yes there´s a killing made on IVA but it´s certainly not watertight. There are plenty of IVA scams going on. The most common is factura promised but never delivered and the IVA pocketed. There´s a lot of that, the thinking being "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush", hang the reputation.

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

It dawned on me the other day that Chile would be far more wealthy and develop a lot faster if it imposed all its existing laws. Take for example tax collection. I´ve no idea what proportion of the population lives quite comfortably without paying tax their entire lives, many many self employed maes...
