Is 180,000 pa good enough?

Postby JS » Thu, 17 Mar 2005 1:27 pm

Hi, I have an offer from a Singapore company for 180,000 per annum (split over 13 months). The pay is all local - no expat benefits with bonus on top. Is this normal sort of package in singapore terms? I am wondering how good is it (saving potential) considering that I will be sending 2 kids to school (I am aware that International Schools have high costs.

Look forward to your views

Thanks
JS

School fee per year approx S$45,000/y(12,000 USDx 2) + rent 30000(2500 x12)....It really depends on which school and where you gonna live but I think you'll be fine.
