Salaries in Dubai
Hi, Sunil here to discuss salaries in Dubai.
How much do you get paid in Dubai?
These are typical questions that I get not only from our newsletter and blog followers, but also from family and friends.
Everyone is just so mesmerized by what they hear about Dubai salaries and they always want to learn about it first hand from me.
So Are the Salaries in Dubai Worth You Moving?This is a personal decision you need to make. Moving doesnt just mean a new job, it also means new environment, new friends, new atmosphere and a new experience. In many cases it is also a risk. If you have a family you have to think about everyones situation as well. Do you want to raise your kids in Dubai? Do you have dependent parents living with you?
Sorry about the tangent, but what I just said is very much applicable. Back to salaries however, if you are living and working in a first world country like the United States or UK or Canada or Australia, take the amount you are making and convert it to Dirhams (AED). This is roughly how much you will be making in Dubai.
In many cases you might even make a lower amount, and in some cases you will make more. If you have a specialty skill (i.e. Banking regulations knowledge or IFRS / US GAPP for a US based company), you will definitely make a premium. So as you can see there is little to no difference in the gross dollars you make.
However, what you take home differs significantly. Remember, you pay NO TAXES in Dubai. So if you typically pay 40% in taxes, this is the amount you will save by working in Dubai. Now is that 40% worth the trade offs of working in Dubai? Have you considered the cost of living in Dubai?
Kish and I hope that you found this section a helpful introduction to how salaries in Dubai are similar or different from where you currently are.
