There is talk of my company moving me out to HK from NY this fall for a two+ year posting -- needless to say i am very excited about the possibility. I'm 25 and single and see this a great opportunity.
My company is relatively small and does not have much experience moving people overseas (yikes!). a tight budget also means that i will be doing most of the relocation footwork myself... so i've got some questions!
Taxation: our HK office is young and we do not yet have an HK bank account or payroll capabilities. I will therefore be paid from our US office; how do i avoid double taxation? where can i find out more about HK taxation practices as they relate to expat compensation packages?
Insurance: i have no idea where to begin with this-- i am currently enrolled in the company plan here in the US and have no idea how this will be affected by a move overseas. I need to contact my insurer, but would appreciate additional input/thoughts/advice
Housing: There is the possibility that my company will provide a housing subsidy or pay for a serviced apt. I expect any offer to be modest-- where is the best value with regards to housing in HK? Where can i find out about different neighborhoods in HK?
Thanks in advance for your help... all thoughts are sincerely appreciated!!!!
