Re: Want to earn more? Move abroad

The kind of people who are sent abroad by their job tend to get a package involving free flat, overseas allowance and a whole pot of extras, hence the extra money.

One good thing about coming to Poland is that you can start a small business on less capital that would be needed in UK or US, so I suppose it's possible to end up earning a fortune.

Re: Want to earn more? Move abroad

It's not quite that clear cut. It is much easier to set up a company in the UK.

For instance, if you want to set up a limited company, (and not just register as self employed) you will need to put up a minimum of 50,000 PLN in capital. The UK? £1 (Plus a registration fee of about £10). And then there is the legendary Polish red tape...

Of course your expenses may be cheaper in Poland, but then your revenue is likely to be lower too.
