Currently in negotiations over new contract in Dubai. I am most likely going to be a contractor/non perm. I have never been and am clueless at this point, as below questions indicate! Questions about costs and how to go about:
typical monthly 1 bed apartment? weekly food shop? cost of meal in a regular restaurant? cost of a beer? (!)
Health insurance? must i go private or is there state? social security system, like state benefits and what you have to do to get them. for example, public pension, healthcare&nursing and unemployment., childcare, disability etc income tax rate? social security monthly deductions? other taxes + expenses? car insurance? other insurances that are compulsory?
what is Process to register as contractor/freelance/self employed + costs?
