Default Salary advice please...

I work in Dubai and get paid in UAE Dirhams each month. This goes straight into my Dubai bank account.

What should I do with my money? Keep it in the bank in Dubai? Send it to an offshore account? Transfer it to UK?


any advice from people who have experience in this situation would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

the other option is to spend it?

erm.... not to be rude but what is the purpose of this post?

Basic questions... have you got bills in the UK to pay, have you got bills in Dubai to pay? if you can give some information about your commitments then it can be answered. Are you here to save money? Are you leaving the UK for good? Have you been on the beers already this morning?

you do not have to put this information in the board... you can email me and so it can be kept private.

I need more coffee as the bloody cold weather here in Glos is starting to piss me off and I would rather be having a beer round at TS's place or up at Nad Al Sheba club.

And Mrs Creative is still asleep after being up half the night with her dogs. hmmm beginning to wonder what the point was of flying back for Xmas at the moment. I am not bitter.
