Expatriate Life in Dubai

What are expats in the UAE most concerned about when it comes to their finances?

We really wanted to know.

You see, at swissglobal, our motto is to create personal success stories with you at the very heart of them. To do our job, we needed to know what was worrying you.

So we decided to do something about it. We launched a far-reaching campaign to get in touch with you, and find out more about your top of mind financial worries.

We spoke to existing clients, and prospective ones. We reached out to veteran expats and those of you just starting your expat adventure.

And here’s what we found – a full 83% of you were concerned about tax planning. Yes, even long-term expats.

Taxes don’t go away just because you have. And it’s not just the taxes you’re liable for now that can hurt but also those you might pay later when accessing your savings.

You were worried about tax surprises hurting your financial health. So we decided to help – just as we’ve personally helped many of you tax-optimise your portfolios.

We have created an Expat Wealth Protection Guide that helps you think about tax the right way. We addressed common concerns, and set you on track to ask your advisers the hard questions – such as:

Financial Concerns

–               Am I still legally a UK resident or UK-domiciled, and what does that mean for my taxes?

–               Are my savings taxable when I return home?

–               What happens tax-wise to any real estate I own?


You can find our Wealth Protection Guide here.

We’d be delighted to help you any answer any questions you might have. Just reach out to us at chattous@swissglobalgroup.com and we’ll to do the rest.
