Hi everyone,
I need your assistance
I have an interview with one of the top British financial institution for a vacancy in London
The post is in the project management field
Before I peruse this opportunity I wanted to read more about life in London I was surprised by the tax rate, I haven’t reached the offer stage yet but I want to know what I should expect
I have a master degree MBA from USA I have 8 years of experience in the financial sector
What is the average salary for such experience and education
And if I’m not British do I have to pay taxes (I’m Jordanian) and I will be coming on a contract base
Your assistance is highly appreciated

If you are going to be living in the UK and employed by a UK company to be based there ( so not on an expat contract / assignment) then I am certain you will pay UK taxes.

I don't know what sort of salary you would expect to earn, but I imagine that with the sort of information you've given, the only answer anyone would be able to give you would be so vague as to be meaningless.

Contrary to what others may say, you do not have to pay any taxes in Britain unless you are British. Unfortunately, this also means that you do not have access to state-run or subsidised services such as roads, trains, power, water or emergency services. This means that most foreigners working here have to travel around by helicopter, employ expensive private security guards, and buy economy packs of Evian.

Good information and important for all foreigners to know.

I should add that the recent bailout of Britain's banking industry, which culminated in the state taking a majority share-holding in two of our largest banks and providing a substantial implicit subsidy to all the rest, has made the procurement of every-day financial services difficult for foreigners living in the UK, since they are barred from opening accounts with firms being propped up by the taxpayer. This has led many less well-off non-Brits living over here to return to informal modes of exchange, while well-healed foreigners have gravitated towards the commuter town of Egham in Surrey, where the UK branches of many private banks are located (Automatic Teller Machines have been out of bounds to non-nationals since the July 7th bombings, in view of their potential utility to terrorists).
