Quote from: Figleaf on April 24, 2016, 11:33:26 PMIt's the other way around in France. Napoleon's grave is the "Dome des Invalides" and the nearest métro stop is Invalides. The official term is Grand Invalide de Guerre - Grand Invalide Civil or GIG - GIC, but that's pompouspeak only. "Grand" means that you don't need to apply if you have a broken fingernail. I suspect handicapé is used mostly for golfers. Peter

Bank transfer? That would be tracked as "income" for the seller, and he will be taxed for it.
