Make Sure You Avoid These Common Mistakes When Relocating To Another Country Working with our International Movers to initiate your relocation overseas can be a sound way of minimising the risks of such a major change in your life. However, there is still plenty of scope for costly errors if you do not prepare yourself suitably in advance of your move.

Here are just some of the things that you should be careful not to do as an expatriate.

Misjudging your cost of living

When you are new to a country, it can be very easy to find yourself spending as if you are in ‘holiday mode’ – which may be understandable enough if you are eager to quickly immerse yourself in your new territory’s culture.


Thankfully, it’s relatively easy – with sites like Numbeo – to assess your likely living costs in a given country, so that you can compare this to your salary and consider what standard of living you will be able to afford.

Getting caught out by the local tax situation

There can be major differences between the tax situations of different countries, which could significantly impact on how much take-home pay you are able to enjoy in your new jurisdiction.

It’s therefore well worth engaging a professional financial adviser to inform you on how your new country’s policies in relation to payroll tax, personal income tax, capital gains tax and other taxes could affect you. For more information visit our website: www.simpsons-uk.com
