I am considering moving to a job in the PI but I am shocked at the prospect of paying 32% tax on top of having to maintain 2 homes as the family cannot come with me. I am trying to weigh up if this move makes financial sense. The company in question is a Branch of a European company which in turn is part of a US MNC. I read that expats are taxed at 15% if part of an RHQ but where does an expat stand in a ‘Branch’ co.?

Also, what about other deductions? I have not seen anything so far about other deductions but maybe someone could clarify for me.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
