Hello I am taking a post abroad and I anticipate that I will be able to save money, however, some people have been telling me that I will be hit by the tax man on this income? (I don't have any money to start up an off-shore account) Also, how easy/hard is it to get a mortgage when you are an expat? I have a mortgage already and was hoping to use the equity from the sale of the house plus savings to buy somewhere new for when I get back in 2 years time? Anyone done this? I have heard HSBC is possible? But how do you prove your income? thanks ANy advice, good or bad will be accepted!!!
