Welcome to ExpatFinance.net our online financial planning and financial advice portal for Expatriates

Expats often find themselves in unusual circumstances financially, owing to the nature of living and working abroad. Much of the text book personal finance is generally not suitable to the extraordinary income, taxation, and cost of living situations that are encountered when working overseas.

Here at Expat Finance we try to pull in information from our global network of expatriates to collect the best tips and advice to help those overseas make the most of their money and investments. Whether you are planning to retire overseas, or simply work abroad for 6 months, there are many important tips that you can make best use of in order to stretch your hard earned dollars

Our articles cover the wide range of personal finances from covering good ways to reduce your monthly spending and outgoings, to making the most tax efficient off shore investments. Each person has their own financial goals and plans, but the core principals are generally useful reading for most people.

From the day to day money issues such as comparing credit cards, comparing personal loans, or picking the best offshore bank accounts, we seek to bring all of the information together in an entirely independent, impartial, way in open and transparent advice

In addition to the broader topics we also look at more complicated issues such as moving your pension offshore, Expat life insurance, and offshore insurance wrapper investments. The financial planning options available to expats can often be quite confusing and there are numerous unscrupulous companies that seek to exploit expatriates with dodgy investment schemes.

Expat Finance aims to offer advice regardless of where you may live, but focuses on the regions with higher volumes of Expatriate workers, such as Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan. Each country has its own unique legal system and taxation framework, which sometimes makes advice quite specific to each region. All of our posts are tagged with the country they are applicable in and can be filtered by country on the overview page

Above everything else, the advice is given to the best of our knowledge and does not constitute professional advice. It is, however, 100% impartial, independent, and free, with no hidden agenda.
