When it’s pouring with rain and the house prices have gone up again while you enjoy a salary freeze, the grass can seem an awful lot greener on the other side. Emigration may not have been something that you have ever considered before, but when you feel stuck in a rut with your job and your finances are doing a nosedive, it’s only natural to look around and see where you could thrive elsewhere. When you look at your family, there are two things that you could want more than anything; good money and a nice life. You want to up your earning potential, so that the salary freeze that you’ve been frustrated about for years will end. You want to be able to give your family the nice life that they deserve and sometimes that means upping sticks and going abroad. The cinch? Knowing where on earth to go that will give you what you want. Financially, you need to consider all the costs of moving abroad and you need to give yourself a reality check while you’re at it to ensure you really will be better off.
So, where in the world can you go to get a nice life and have a far better income than you do right now?
Switzerland. For years, Switzerland has been cited as the best place to find a well-balanced lifestyle of a higher quality than the one you have right now. You can find the right career prospects while enjoying a healthy salary, and it’s a fantastically well-balanced place for families to grow up. It’s a place where expats have a lot of faith in the economy and it’s exactly why it’s a booming one!
Monaco. It’s one of the smallest places in the world, but it’s one that enjoys 300 days of sunshine every year and the residents benefit from no income tax, wealth tax or capital gains tax. Finding the right help with relocating to Monaco doesn’t have to be difficult, and knowing that you are moving your family somewhere with more cameras and policemen per capita, you can be safe in the knowledge your family is safe.
Japan. Working in Japan is an experience not many will ever get to have. The infrastructure, the nature in the islands and the amazing quality of life that can be found in Japan makes for an enormously appealing place to go. Expats can enjoy amazing salaries while enjoying new and exciting experiences, not to mention the food is just fantastic.
These three countries are just the tip of the iceberg for expats, and there are so many places that you can choose from for your family. Professional expats tend to earn more abroad than in their own home country, and you are more coveted if you are lucky enough to be picked up by a company abroad. Take the time to do your research and you can choose the perfect location to start all over again with your family.
