Expat Salary in KL
 
Hi all,

We currently live in Dubai. I have been approached by the Malaysian government for a senior position. I tried to get an idea of living cost in KL using google but I am still a little bit lost. Do position for western expats come with allowances like here in Dubai? How are salary levels? I took a quick look and the salaries looked very low for international standards. Do Western expats get competitive packages? How much is the income tax?

Sorry for so many questions.

Cheers!

Can't help too much except to say in the private sector salaries are competitive and you do get full good packages including all the usual allowances in certain industries.

Klaus...pop into Dubai Mall or MoE and pick up the Explorer Guide to KL for about 80 Dh. I've got one and it is a wealth of info if you are looking to relocate.

Thanks. I just ordered it online. They have a 50% off on all titles during the summer. I guess business is slow during this time of the year. I am still trying to figure out the appropriate salary level for the position I am been offered.
