Re: Buying/investing in UK as a UK Expat

I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend anything or anyone I don't believe in. I'd recommend people a book and to avoid wasting money.

Call it a fee, call it commission or even confuse the two and combine...

Re: Buying/investing in UK as a UK Expat

Thanks, I'm not trying to be funny though, just hoping that any new person to the world of NEOM doesn't get lured in by the unscrupulous financial product sellers this part of the world allows to...

Re: Buying/investing in UK as a UK Expat

Problem with finance 'professionals' in this part of the world, is that most aren't. They're decent sales people, not money makers for others.

The other problem, in general, with investment advice...

Re: Buying/investing in UK as a UK Expat

I'd far rather put my money on black or red than a paid 'adviser' in this region - at least the odds are (almost) 50/50 in that instance.

Re: Buying/investing in UK as a UK Expat

The complete opposite. I think lots of people moving overseas for the first time to a tax-free life should do everything they can to avoid 'professional' help in this part of the world.

God help those poor folks at NEOM. You've seen the thread right? It's going to be easy pickings, lots of savings to 'advise' on. ‚Äč

Re: Child support from UAE to UK

The UAE isn't on the REMO list for the UK so, in essence, you don't have to pay anything at all (from what Google tells me).

But from what I've read, it seems that overseas payer calculations are...

Read Andrew Hallam's book - Millionaire Expat.
Read the news about interest rates on BTLs in the UK.

Re: PIF

I'd expect someone to take a pay cut if they're on a day rate going permanent - depends on your current deal I suppose?

Re: Taurus85's question - is transportation allowance a right in KSA?

I don't think it's an employment 'right' per se.

I would expect to see a total monthly package, split between Basic Salary and 'Allowances'.
We label all allowances in one lump under 'Living'....

Re: Anybody Currently Teaching in a British School, UAE.

Speak to the schools and ask them.

I don't know why you think people can give you 4-5 levels of salaries and benefits for 8 schools dotted around two large cities.

It's a great opportunity if it's right for someone, just be ready for an environment at work that's very, very different to anything anywhere else.

Re: NEOM Potential Job

Not trying to put you off, just sharing what the jungle drums beat in the market.

The pay can be excellent and costs are zilch, obviously, so the 'extra' is two fold.
But if you take your kids...

Because they're hiring anyone willing to go to the arse-end of Saudi and live in a camp. So many of the questions on here are from people who've never set foot in the region, let alone Saudi, let...
