New Survey Reveals Britons Are Desperate To Move Abroad

A new survey has revealed that young Britons are keen to escape overseas for more opportunities, better living standards and cheaper taxation.

Online PR News – 17-June-2009 – – A new survey has revealed that young Britons are keen to escape overseas for more opportunities, better living standards and cheaper taxation.

The survey commissioned by Foreign Currency Direct found that 58 per cent would go abroad for a better work life balance than what they can achieve in the UK.

Over twelve hundred British workers across the UK were surveyed to determine how large a percentage of the British population is dissatisfied with their life in the UK, and would they contemplate escaping this ‘great’ nation of ours for a new life elsewhere.

Almost a quarter of the twelve hundred British workforce questioned by the survey are already actively considering moving abroad within the next two year, to live and work somewhere where they can have better quality of life potentially, where they can enjoy the expat tax advantages potentially available to them, and where they can perhaps even enjoy cheaper living costs.

And the largest numbers of those actively planning an escape were in the 18-30 brackets. As a result of the hike of tax to 50 per cent, 31 per cent of those surveyed declared that they would go abroad to seek out better taxation advantages.

In fact, out of the over 60’s age group surveyed, 40 per cent advised that they would contemplate moving abroad to save tax on their pension payments.
