Thinking of packing in that nine-to-five? This might just be the motivation you need…
If you’re looking to branch out to becoming your own boss and freelancing in Dubai, this information might just be the motivation you need. A new study conducted by UK business site Expert Market has revealed that the UAE is one of the top places in the world to be your own boss.
The UAE beats countries including New Zealand and the United Kingdom, listed as the fourth best country to be a freelancer in the world. It’s trumped only by South Korea, the USA and Hong Kong, which is listed as number one.
The study, which compared 57 countries, looked at cost of living, income tax, access to credit, average internet speed, transport networks, the availability of free wifi, the cost of a coffee, and the cost of starting a new business.
Couple that with the tax-free lifestyle in the UAE, we’re not surprised that the Emirates ranked so highly.
