Sweden Voted Top Destination for Women Expats

However, money is not the only consideration for expats. Switzerland may have topped the expat income charts, but ‘economics’, ‘experience’ and ‘family life’ were factored into the equation it was placed behind Singapore, New Zealand, Germany, Canada, Australia, Bahrain and Sweden.

Sweden’s appearance on the list is no surprise. For expats in Sweden, wealth management options are just one of the country’s many draws; it is also one of the leading places in the world for gender equality and came in at first place in terms of the opportunities for family life.

The study revealed that, globally, women still face more professional and wealth management challenges than men. Although becoming an expat increases a woman’s income by nearly 30 per cent, the income of expat women was still lower than their male counterparts by around USD42,000. However, in Sweden, this expat wealth management gender disparity was not so marked.

Changes to the Dutch 30% reimbursement ruling confirmed

Thirty Percent SignRecent news about the 30% tax ruling in the Netherlands could have substantial implications for British expats and their financial planning and wealth management strategies.

The 30% tax ruling for expats in the Netherlands enables employers to offer working expats 30% of their salary tax-free as long as they meet certain requirements. The intended aim is to encourage highly skilled workers from around the globe to bring their expertise to the Netherlands. After all, relocating to the Netherlands is not cheap, and the tax advantage is there to help offset all the expense that comes with relocating. There are approximately 60,000 expats who currently claim the tax break.

As we reported last year, the tax break came under fire in a report published by the Dutch research bureau Dialogic for being far too generous and, therefore, costing the Dutch government too much money for it to be sustainable. When published in June 2017, the report suggested several reforms to the system, including shortening the number of years that expats could claim the tax-relief from eight years to five. This was because research carried out by Dialogic found that the vast majority of expats making use of the benefit (80%) claimed it for fewer than five years; less than 10% actually claimed the benefit for the full eight years.
