Some advice needed on package structure

Postby anolnu » Sun, 14 Jan 2007 5:44 am

My company would send me to Singapore as an expat. In the package they offer housing with 4 rooms in my case (2 adults + 2 children). Alternatively allowance. My question: should I expect a bungalow in the 10-11-21 districts or a more distant flat for company paid housing?

Secondly. My company would pay 80% of my children's daycare and school in private school. What would be my 20% in $ in an English school?

Could someone give me a proxy of purchasing power in Singapore? Say, if you would get anything from phone calls, newspaper, insurance and food to train ticket, movie ticket etc. and need 1 unit of currency to pay that in your home country, how much would you need to get the same in Singapore? 0.5 times, 2 times the same currency or what? Pls, name the country you're comparing to.

I would be very happy with some help. Thanks for the guidance!

can't be of much help with your questions, but you may find the cost of living calculators on this site to be helpful: http://www.salaryexpert.com/index.cfm?f ... ol&lang=en

or the Indexes of Living Costs Abroad available here: http://www.state.gov/m/a/als/qtrpt/2004/32608.htm
