Thanks for everyones response.
Think I need to clarify the situation. In summary the company would not be providing my accommodation or paying for it etc. I would need to pay for the accommodation out of my own salary.
However, I was told in an interview that my normal tax rate would be 16% but you could somehow the company would allow me to include the rent you pay as part of your total taxable which means the effective tax rate would be 11%.
Let me know if this sounds correct!
I've also received an "initial offer" which is £10k lower than my expectation so will reject in due course to ask for higher.
Relocation etc is as follows is there anything else I should look out for or is this about right for a local hire with relocation thrown in?
Pension (10% non contributing)
Relocation of US$2,500 cash, flight, and shipping.
