What is a Value-Added Tax - VAT
A value-added tax (VAT) is a type of consumption tax that is placed on a product whenever value is added at a stage of production and at the point of retail sale. The amount of VAT that the user pays is on the cost of the product, less any of the costs of materials used in the product that have already been taxed.

More than 160 countries around the world use value-added taxation; it is most common in the European Union. But it is not without controversy. Advocates say it raises government revenues without punishing success or wealth, as income taxes do; it is also simpler and more standardized than a traditional sales tax, and there are fewer compliance issues. Critics charge that a VAT is essentially a regressive tax that places an increased economic strain on lower-income taxpayers, and also adds bureaucratic burdens for businesses.

How much TAX would you pay back home?

Let's think positive for a few minutes. :)

Me I would have to give roughly 50% of my income salary as tax. Then everything would have a 20% VAT (Except food at 5.5%). I would then pay around 2500 AED/year as housing tax.

I remember my last year back home, I got a bonus that pushed me up a tax bracket and 90% of my bonus went into paying the additional taxes... It was... so... so... I can't even...

In exchange for that I would get nearly free school all the way to a PhD, cheap healthcare (except eye and dental), some limited unemployment benefit and I'd be paying for a retirement system that will probably stop existing before I can benefit from it.

5% is meh. I'm still get much more available income here than there.

How much does it cost to live in Dubai and what salary do you need for a decent standard of life?

I know there is no right answer for this question, but i&#39;m interested in peoples opinions. I&#39;ve been to Dubai many times - I go every year almost as I have some family and friends there. I&#39;m considering moving. I love it but I&#39;ve found Dubai has got incredibly expensive in the last few years. Most of the people I know have big jobs and make a lot of money. I currently work for one of the big technology companies in sales/marketing - so I&#39;d be looking for a comparable job in Dubai - but I have no idea what the salaries are like and what sort of standard of living it would give you.</p> <p>I&#39;m wondering can anyone give a ballpark as to what rent costs in the main places to live that are not crazy expensive but nice. I&#39;m thinking JLT or maybe JBR or something similar. What about utilities and other expenses? I keep hearing how Dubai may be tax free but they get you on other stealth taxes. Water and electricity are not cheap and even things like your driving licence.</p> <p>If you were a sales/marketing manager for a tech company - can you live in a nice area, have a good lifestyle and still save a decent amount of money?</p> <p>Sorry if the questions are stupid but any insight into costs would be appreciated.
