Re: Moving back to UK from Asia after 20+ years, help!

I would agree that UK universities can be strict with interpreting residency rules but I have heard on similar forums that they can take a more relaxed view if its a less popular course. The OP will...

In a similar situation but somewhat older and with an older child. Not PR's either. Our plan is to head back after GCSE and do sixth form in the UK. If they have been in a British style international...

Re: One stop advice service for returning to the UK?

Your main issue will be dealing with the requirement to get a residency visa for your wife. EU citizens no longer have the right to live in the UK even if they have been married to a UK citizen for...

As a UK resident, you will have to declare the income from the offshore investments to stay legal with HMRC. You may well be liable for UK CGT when you sell any of those assets when resident in UK....

Re: Retiring to England

If its not a very popular course then a university may treat you as a local student even if you have less than 3 years UK residence- but it is at their discretion and there are no hard and fast...

Re: Born in UK, never lived in UK

As someone with a UK passport you can just walk straight in. Practically you would be in the same position as many young EU migrants who come to the UK each year. First thing is to get a UK NI...

Re: Job offer Commercial Manager

That's high for a local and is probably adjusted up for the fact that as a foreigner here you will have far more expenses than the locals which would consist of:

Flat: $4-5000 say for a reasonable...

Re: Job Offer for Jakarta, Indonesia - need advice

The employer will be expecting you to negotiate and go back for a better offer and you must do so.

Even local employees get paid leave so you as an expatriate should demand nothing less. I would...

Re: Singapore Salary

You really need to find the going rate for international teachers here before you do too much more negotiation. You have made a good start by coming on here.

Re: Moving to Singapore

If you are the only expat in your company and there aren't too many HR people involved then negotiate hard! If they have chosen you to go then that's a great factor in your favour. Being sent to...

Re: 150k for a family, enough?

Its easy to find 3 bed apartments for 3-4K per month away from the city areas. Most have a pool and a kids play area. Not having a car is OK as supermarkets are very plentiful. If your condo is near...

Re: Job offer in SG - considering relocation

I would second the previous poster. Its not unusual for Singapore companies to be used to paying 15-20,000 dollars a month for a very experienced westerner with specialised skills. Check first that...

Re: Moving from Romania to UK

To second the other posters, 40K GBP is a good salary by UK standards. As one of the other posters has said it will get you about 2500GBP per month once you have paid your taxes. Clearly the further...

Re: How long do you give yourself for a trip home?

Don't accept the first offer you are given. Go back and ask for more salary and the bonus on top as well. If they want you out here they will give you some if not all of that. Bosses get where they...
