That's a shame. Us 3 get by at the minute on about £1800 and that's including mortgage,council tax, 2 cars, football season ticket, mobile phone bills etc. I didn't realise BAhrain was more expensive then UK. Will certainly give it second thoughts thank you.

You have to be out of the UK for a full tax year, 6th April to 5th April, for starters although you can spend at least 90 days in the UK in a tax year provided you aren't working there for more than 20 days.

The Statutory Residency Test applies. https://financialuae.me/2013/02/12/i...esidency-test/

Bahrain is nothing like the UK and you cannot do a cost of living comparison like that. The ME is not the place to be without a bit of cash. Being broke, out of a job, or in trouble in any way can get serious very quickly. Sharia law applies and non-payment of debt is a criminal offence. I think you need to do some reading.
