AED 80,000 per month (All Inclusive) ... Family of 4 moving from UK!

Hi,

I have an offer of AED 80,000 per month all inclusive package. We are a family of 4 , including two kids 6 & 11. Employer will pay whole lump sum of 80k per month hence need to get accomodation, education, flighs etc by ourselves. On top of the salary is health insurance for whole famiy, mobilisation tickets only and end of job benefits.

Is 80k per month all inclusie enough to live a good and comfortable life in AD and save some £££?

My calculations are:

Accomodation: 240,000 per year for a villa (3-4 bed) = 20,000 per month
Education: 60,000 per child per year = 10,000 per month for 2 kids
Living expenses (bills, groceries, food, transport) = 10,000 per month (enough?)

Total expense approx 40k per month.
Saving  of around 40k per month = £8,500 per month (more than the net salary per month in Uk)

Sound a good deal but appreciate if experts can shed some light and i case i am missing any major point/issue?

Thanks.

If your saving 40k dhs per month that's a really good salary. In general a decent spending family of five spends about 3-7k dhs on electricity bills and monthly expenses.

It costs us 3500dhs for a family of 5. And a comfortable living.

Its a good offer, I suggest you to take it.
expect most monthly expenses to be lower than this.

Yeah I agree. It's a great offer. But you can save more money depending on a few decisions such as a 3 bedroom apartment rather than a villa which will save you alot and still accommodate your requirements

Also consider your car/car expenses, weekend expenses (entertainment), etc.  They will likely eat up a considerable portion of your 40k projected savings.

thats true , even with the added transportation expenses, and other leisure costs.  he will still have a considerable amount in his monthly savings. and just is savings in general is more than what he is currently earning.

Goog salary go ahead and good luck

you should be find however, your calculation for school is probably low if you want UK school

Once you pass probation you should buy a home in Al Reef or similar rather than renting.
