That is correct. You will need to share a few months of payslips or you can share your employment contract.
Whichever is easier.

They only check payslips

Is it just job title and employment dates, or do they go into other details like remuneration levels etc. I have never come across HireRight and so am wondering specifically what they look for? I don't have anything dark or evil to hide, just don't like the invasion of privacy frankly.

The previous employment checks ask for the following (I was shown the request by one of my references).

1- Employment dates
2- Position held title
3- Reason for leaving
4- would you re-employ this person
5- If no to the above, why?
6- Name and Title of person giving reference.

They don’t ask for anything else.

I've been waiting for 8 weeks for an offer post successful interview and We had added all my documents like ( passport , payslip, diploma certificate, medical report etc ) in the link of the neom portal on 22 May-2023 but still no any response.
I waited about 4-5 WDs

It was over the phone with my recruiter. Your recruiter acts as a middle person between you and HR, who make the decision. Many have said this, offers given are a "take or leave it" kind of deal. I took it. If you intend on taking the deal but want to negotiate, don't decline the offer.

There is no negotiation.
The offer is take it or leave it.

This isn’t entirely true, depending on your personal situation you might wish to negotiate.

I did the above and although it wasn’t a huge sum I managed to get an extra 5,000 SAR a month.

hello everyone, great forum, super detailed and relevant for us!

some quick questions,

seems the bulk of these messages are around direct hire by Neom, are there different living conditions for contractors working in Neom but not directly for Neom?

does anyone have experience /advise of deciding between being a individual contractor or contracting through an umbrella company / Personal Services Company when working for Neom? what things need to be considered?

do all expatriates pay 20% tax at source?

is there a range for Director level roles?

thanks!

there are different living conditions ranging from hotels, villas, apartments, cabins etc and these could be located anywhere from Tabuk, Sharma, Al Bada or Duba. There are also Neom communities which are mostly for Neom direct employees, but even these have differences of location, size, quality and amenities.

Sorry cant advise on working for external companies, but thousands of people are doing this.

Not sure what you're referring to with 20% tax at source? Saudi doesn't have charge income tax for individuals.

Hello,
Typically, it is the highest degree related to your job. Best advice is to check with you recruiter or onboarder to confirm what will need confirmation.
As for the attestation process, the degree should be attested by the Saudi embassy in the country where the degree was issued.

Good luck!

Thx HelpfulExpat,

i saw this quoted

Saudi Arabia income tax rates

Saudi Arabia does not impose any personal income tax. However, non-Saudi and non-GCC resident individuals are subject to a flat income tax rate of 20% on their tax-adjusted profit,

As it says, no personal income tax. The 20% is only relevant to corporate income (profits). Whether you pay any tax at all will depend on your country, but if you’re British then you won’t have to pay income tax as long as you’re not tax resident in the UK.

thanks Chrstmasompa, the two qualifications are

1/ assumed non UK resident, currently proposed the work can be 50:50 UK:SA for meantime so the 183 day rule may come into play.
2/ an earlier question of mine is what is preferred contracting state in this circumstance, individually employed by agent who then contracts with Neom or Personal Services Umbrella company invoices Agent who then invoices Neom including their margin. in the last scenario my 'company' may be subject to that tax?

I would have thought there was a paid advisory service to help people transition into this environment, ie tax and contracting expertise and support does that exist?

cheers all!
