    Definition of relocation expense?

    Hi all, I have just been offered a position in HK to start in the new year!

    In my offer letter there is an allowance for relocation expenses for HK$50,000. I have asked about the definition of relocation expense but am waiting for an answer, can anyone here provide some advice as to what this is likely to include. I was wondering if I could use it to furnish a flat with basics such as bed, sofa, table, tv etc. Rather than ship stuff over from the UK as the cost wouldn't be far off buying new.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Looking forward to meeting some of you guys when I arrive next year!

    It can vary with the company, and even with different positions in the same company. Best to ask.
