So after receiving three job offers in Hong Kong over the last decade, I've finally decided to make the jump and accept the fourth; an internal transfer with my company. I havent refused the others for fear of the unknown - on the contrary, i've spent most of my working life in Asia and have visited HK for business numerous times - but circumstances always got in the way before.
I'm moving over to take up a senior management role with my company. I'm a single guy in my early forties and - to be candid - the package looks obscenely good.
The offer is HK$180,000 per month. While they will put me up in a serviced apartment for a month, after that I need to find my own accommodation, but the package is structured in such a way that 40% of the remuneration is labelled an accommodation allowance. If I don't use it all for rent, it reverts to salary. I assume there is some kind of tax break there.
Usual perks . . insurances, removal costs etc etc, flights home now and again. Potential for 15% bonus.
I have no idea where I'm going to live, nor at this moment do I care much. I just want to get over there and start the new life.
I'm looking forward to spending the next month looking through these forums to find out all the information I need.
