THINK YOUR DOING WELL UNTIL THE UK TAX MAN GETS YOU !!! THE BRAIN DRAIN IS CURRENTLY ON !!!
So - you think your doing well for yourself and earning a great salary and lording it up over all you survey.
Then your pay cheque comes and you realise that the UK government has put you through the mangle, rinsed you out and is laughing all the way to the bank based on your hard work !!! And whats more the money that they take from you is just wasted come what may
Anybody who believes that gross salary is reality is just massaging their ego or using the figure as a pretence to flex their muscles at dinner parties. The truth of the matter is that its only NET SALARY that counts.
And when we say net salary lets be TRULY honest - deduct Income Tax, deduct National Insurance, deduct VAT on daily purchases, deduct Council Tax and then deduct all the other taxes that they crucify you on in the UK - fuel duty ( where you have to take out a mortgage to fill up your car ), TV licence ( even if you never watch BBC TV), parking permits, car park charges, prescription charges ( even though you pay all this tax ! ), flight passenger duty ( so they even tax you when you go on holiday with the little money you have left !! ), corporation tax if you set up your own business ( that really crushes entrprenurial spirit ) - you name it they tax it in the UK !!!
AND WHAT BENEFIT DO BRITISH RESIDENTS GET FROM THE HIGHEST TAXED ECONOMY IN THE WORLD - NOTHING !! ITS NOT LIKE WE HAVE SCANDINAVIAN STYLE PUBLIC SERVICES NOW IS IT ? !!!
WELL THERE IS ANOTHER WAY !!!
Overseas markets are currently booming and lawyers are earning huge and often tax free incomes in many jurisdictions !! THE BRAIN DRAIN IS WELL AND TRULY ON AGAIN AND LAWYERS ARE EARNING HUGE MONEY IN OVERSEAS MARKETS EXPERIENCE BLISTERING GROWTH.
These lawyers return to the UK able to buy superb properties and with huge amounts of spare cash and just think that anyone who pulverises themselves in the UK market is a complete mug.
