Some of you already know, some don't...but if all goes well, I will be moving to Saudi Arabia for the next two years any time soon... It was a nice request from my boss and the opportunity was too good not to accept it.
Before you ask the question I get at least three times a day, I do not yet know when I will be leaving, could be anything from weeks to months...
Saudi Arabia (KSA) does not have any income tax or sales tax / VAT. This offers a lot of opportunities. A car in the Netherlands has about 40% registration tax and another 19% VAT (which VAT also applies to other goods and services).
One thing I could use some help with is about prices in KSA. I have found a lot of info on living in KSA, but I could not find any info on prices. Where European websites often have price listings and/or configurators (e.g. for PCs and laptops), I could not find this info on KSA websites.
The reason I ask is because I want to find out whether I can better buy some electronics (PC/Laptop etc.) before I move there or once I am there. I do not speak/read/write Arabic, which may be part of the problem. So if anyone can help me with this, it would be much appreciated. Also, prices on car leases (SUV) would be much appreciated, as I will have a certain budget to make my own arrangements.
In any case, many thanks for any help you can offer!
