    My husband was able to do this and claim back taxes I think when we left but he worked for a huge multinational company with a dedicated global mobility department. I am not sure how many international schools would be able to support this as I assume it takes a billion trips to different offices all accompanied by a local member of the admin staff (and possible several boxes of cigarettes). I certainly didn't manage to do this!

    How much do Chinese international schools pay teachers? Would 20000rmb be about the most you can get?

    Dear musikteech, surely you have been on this forum long enough to know that is not a very sensible question. There is not a set rate for 'international teachers' anywhere!

    There is a wide range of pay rates across the world depending on a wide range of variables. Please try and be a bit more precise in your request for information!

    Actually that is probably the least (per month) that a qualified and experienced teacher should accept in China (not including housing allowance etc.).

    IAMBOG New commenter

    I would say 20,000 is the least plus housing (minimum of 7,000) flights and medical.

    The worst I've heard is 15,500 plus 6,000.

    ...........but why would you ask that question on a thread about pension withdrawal?

    I don't really know. Maybe I should have started a new thread. 20000RMB is about 20K sterling so not too bad.

    Actually, 20K RMB is around 2100 sterling (a month). So, that would be around 25K sterling per year. So, no, not too bad (better if it's net and much better if you also receive a nice housing allowance).
