I got offered an Assignment in London,England today for 2years, would you do it?

Well I just got back from a meeting with my managers and partners with a few people in London. Well after a 2 hour meeting they offered me an Assignment in London for two years but I would live there here are my benefits:

1. free living
2. they buy car and bike (optinal)
3 bills paid for!!!!! arrrrrrggggggg sweeeeeeeeeetttt.

and last but not least my pay would jump to 135k!!! a year

the way that I see it, its all free.
would you guys do it, leave your family and friends?

I think it's just an accomplishment to be offered this chance in my company

im actully about 80% sure that I am going and saying "cheers Mait" lol

so let me know what would you guys do..

London is awsome. I did an internship there a few summers back. Awsome nightlife, great tourist attractions, not to mention the sophistication. I would take the opportunity if I were you.. You can get everything there that you can get here, other than family. Mind me asking what it is that you do? What is it that you will be doing over there?

It will not be tax free, I will have to pay taxes to the US since we are only one of the few countries that does world taxation, and they will aslo pay my UK taxes.

Im not sure if they would let come to the US much, I didnt cover that.

IslandKilo, no thank you IM taking it Mang!!!
