Re: Living in Chile, Working Remotely - My Experience

A 60-70% agency fee is crazy though, there are a bunch of agencies like Access Financial, Hecuba Dawn, Mauve / White Coral, just to name a few, who can provide solutions for situations like these, and fees are generally in the 15-20% range. Are you saying that these companies will engage in situati...

Re: Living in Chile, Working Remotely - My Experience

I think this is a UK-specific thing, I understand there was a reform of the IR 35 tax code there, with this important change: "IR35 – as the controversial tax reform is called – will see financial liability for defining the employment status of a freelancer shift from the employee to employer upon i...

Re: Internet in Rural areas

Finally catching up with this topic :-) Mem had excellent information, I agree that if you have mobile 4G service that's the way to go. You can use pretty much any mobile to check service at the location, on Android the application G-NetTrack Lite will tell you about the mobile environment, and on i...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The only reliable data is the excess death statistic, which was updated by the Financial Times again yesterday: https://www.ft.com/content/a26fbf7e-48f8-11ea-aeb3-955839e06441. This is taken from Chilean government data of course, they give the link at the bottom of the page. Interesting article fr...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Today I heard the press conference. The subsecretary requested urgently that people with symptoms do the test and gave that as a cause for the much lower amount of tests realized the last few days. To me, that sounds doubtful. 2 weeks ago Universidad de Chile said that test results are 14 days dela...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

so does this mean all the previous reported deaths were too low in reality? that the reason Chile has a low death rate vs total cases has bene just due to data reporting? to compare with old numbers, we need to look at the lower "old methodology" numbers. meaning real deaths are actually declining ...

Re: Finding home in Chile

I was passed a link to Reserva Nativa Chiloé, 5000 square metre lots for about USD5000 each. Chiloé should become more accessible once the bridge is finished, so it could be a good investment for the future if you can deal with being that far south. Have you been to where those parcelas are? I was ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The old timers had the right idea in the South, apple trees around the house in most rural properties. We have just made 300 litres of chicha manzana. Fermented apple juice. Today was the official tasting, its good. That is funny. I just had another client recently send me a video of the neighbors ...
