Many wealthy people often choose one of the European countries. However, as a rule, they do not know what difficulties they will have to face when planning to move, for example, to Germany or France. What should you pay attention to first? First of all, it is necessary to estimate how difficult or easy it is to get an official status in the chosen country. The second most important issue is the one are the costs. An equally important aspect is the income tax rate for residents of the country.
Many of those prosperous countries in Europe, unfortunately, do not actively issue permits for residence. Evidently, life in Sweden or Germany has some particular advantages. But you need to take into account the complexity of obtaining a residence permit. At the same time, becoming a resident of such countries, your income can be taxed with up to 50% rate, which is very substantial for investors and entrepreneurs.
There are other countries where the income tax is much lower, and the procedure for issuing a residence permit is much simpler. There are countries programs facilitating obtaining the residence permit for investment. The UAE is one of such countries. If the United Arab Emirates is your choice, it takes only a couple of months to obtain a residence permit. There are several common ways of obtaining the residence permit in the UAE, for example, by purchasing real estate, or becoming a shareholder in the UAE company.
