Barcelona by Bert Kaufmann

Barcelona by Bert Kaufmann

Barcelona has an irresistible attraction for many British expats. With the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains close by, this vibrant, cosmopolitan city is also brimming with history and culture. But what possibilities does the city hold for expats that want to do business there?

Spain as a whole remains a relatively easy place in which to do business. This may explain why it was positioned 33 out of 189 countries in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Survey for 2016. Spain ranked well in factors such as trading across borders (earning first place), resolving insolvency (25th), and protecting minority investors (29th).

Perhaps due to its diversity, with Spanish nationals and international expats living and working closely together, there are excellent business prospects for expatriates in Barcelona. However, to make the most of business opportunities, fluency in the Spanish language and, ideally, a basic grasp of Catalan, is an enormous benefit.

When you get past the language, what is different about doing business in Barcelona? Well, there’s a different timetable for starters. Business isn’t typically 9 ‘til 5. Instead, it starts somewhere between 9 and 10am, breaks for lunch around 1pm, and resumes from about 3pm until evening. There isn’t quite a siesta, but a long lunch is quite normal.

That break in the middle of the day isn’t all about feasting and snoozing, however, as business is often carried out over lunch. Spaniards and Catalans love eating and it is very common to spend time in restaurants combining delicious food with business.

One of the characteristics of doing business in Barcelona, is that relationships tend to be formed between people, rather than companies. As a result, once you have established a connection, it will be unaffected when you, or the other party, change companies. Trust, therefore, is very important, and demonstrating reliability and strong business ethics is key.

You must also show due respect to those senior to you, as Spanish businesses are hierarchical. Even though you may be depending on a decision from a senior executive, it would be bad form to attempt to set up an initial meeting with anyone above your own rank.

On the subject of etiquette, dealing with associates in their own language is another essential, not just verbally but in all your materials. Offering presentations in both English and Spanish shows that you appreciate the opportunity to take your business to their country.

Some customs in Spanish businesses may seem strange, even rude. For instance, it’s quite normal for people around the meeting table to interrupt one another, and even talk over each other. This should not be misinterpreted as impoliteness, although it can make it difficult to follow the conversation, especially when it is in a foreign tongue.

Once you navigate around a few cultural differences, you will find that doing business in Barcelona can be a pleasurable experience. Spaniards are generally friendly and cheerful, and those in Barcelona are no exception. It’s likely that you will find the business community warm and genuinely interested in you and what you can offer through your business.

If you are setting out on a business venture in Spain, it is advisable to consult with a solicitor and accountant to ensure that all your dealings adhere to Spanish law and tax regulations. You may be considering setting up a company in Barcelona – a Sociedad Limitada. In which case, you will need assistance with this and with setting up an overseas bank account.

UK family make a successful move to New Zealand with the help of BBC CBeebies and PSS International Removals

Moving overseas can be both exciting and stressful for children and adults alike. There is so much to organise as well as deciding what to take and what to leave behind. The PSS team are used to making the process as relaxed and stress-free as possible.

Recently we were asked to help a family move to New Zealand with BBC CBeebies. They were being featured on a TV programme about relocating to start a new life in Auckland.

Here is a video clip showing the PSS removals team in action. They arrived as scheduled on packing day and sprang into action – helped by the two boys!

 

They watch fascinated as ornaments disappear from shelves and pictures removed from walls, all wrapped and packed in no time.

You can see on the video that our experienced packers had fun with the boys too – packing them up in boxes to send them on their way with the rest of the furniture!

Fortunately, the end of the video shows them helping to load the shipping container and waving goodbye to all their toys – the next time they’ll see it is at their new home in Auckland.

Update: The move all went to plan

 

We’re happy to report that the family and all their belongings arrived safely. They have now happily settled in and are enjoying their new life in New Zealand.

Are you moving overseas too?

 

If you are planning a new life overseas, no matter whether it’s New Zealand or anywhere else in the world, then give the PSS team a call. Our experienced advisers will be able to assist you with everything you need to know about moving to your new country. For example, they can answer all your questions on what you can and can’t take as well as give you tips on clearing customs.

It is never too early to start planning your move so call us today even if it’s just to get a rough estimate or discuss the different options open to you.

What’s it all about? You’re working every day to pay for your lifestyle. The mortgage repayments, insurance, car lease, utility bills, childcare. The depleted chunk of change that goes into your savings every month is not earning interest. Are you missing a trick? Couldn’t it all be simpler and, let’s face it, more fun?

If you’re in this mind set, it’s time to stop, get off the hamster wheel, and have a rethink. Bold ideas may start to form about doing the unthinkable: quitting your job and moving to a place where the cost of living is so much less that you could work to live (having lots of fun adventures along the way), rather than live to work.

Is it a fantasy? Or can it really be achieved? That depends on where you choose to lay your hat. The grass isn’t always greener when it comes to property prices overseas – and a cheap or non-existent mortgage is going to be the key to you finding your idyllic work-life balance. So where in the world should you go?

MOST POPULAR UK EXPAT LOCATIONS

Australia

While still a popular expat destination for Brits, Australia is not the place to go for cheap property. Eye-watering house prices in all its major cities have hit the headlines in recent times. As of December 2016, mortgages soak up 42% of average income in Sydney, 37% in Melbourne and 23% in Brisbane.

Canada

Renowned for offering better work-life balance, more space and the opportunity to get back to nature, Canada also benefits from having English as a mother tongue, so expats feel at home more quickly. Recent reports show that, for the first time in over four years, the average house price in Canada is declining, albeit marginally. This trend is evident in the Toronto and Vancouver regions, popular with expats, however property prices here remain the highest in the country. Average property prices in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick are significantly lower.

USA

In the year up to March 2016, foreign buyers paid $102.6 billion to buy property in the US, with half of sales occurring in Florida, California, Texas, Arizona and New York. Window shopping for property online, you may spot unbelievable ‘bargains’, but affordability often reflects the lack of local desire to live there. It’s important to research areas, considering economic stability, jobs market, crime rate and frequency of natural disasters to discover possible reasons for lower house prices.

Spain

Brits’ favourite, Spain, has obvious attractions including plenty of sunshine, culture, history, and sound infrastructure. One in four overseas property purchases by Brits are in Spain. After a property crash, and subsequent changes to tax rules, which made buying property in Spain more expensive for expats, the terrain has now settled. Property prices, though beginning to recover, are still around 30% lower than their 2007 peak, making them affordable for expats.

France

Some corners of France have an eternal appeal to British expats, including Brittany, Aquitaine and Languedoc-Roussillon, where traditional homes in pretty villages offer good value for money and a quiet, laid-back lifestyle. UK property buyers also flock to urban areas, such as Paris and Lyon, attracted by career opportunities, but metropolitan living doesn’t come cheap, and property to rent or buy has a steep cost.

AFFORDABLE LOCATIONS ELSEWHERE…

If you really want to embrace your inner global nomad, these destinations offer exceptional bang for your buck in the property market:

Mexico

Columbia

Ecuador

Peru

Portugal

Bulgaria

Morocco

What You Need To Know About Moving To America

With around 794,000 British expats living in the USA it’s one of the most popular destinations for those looking for a different way of life. Relocation hot spots include New York City, Austin, Florida, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver and Los Angeles.

As most people are aware America has a strict immigration policy and moving there will involve a large amount of paper work. What kind of visa you require will be entirely dependent upon the kind of work you are undertaking. Some work visas will entitle you to work temporarily in certain industries, whilst a green card may be applicable if you have been offered permanent employment in a key business. Many expats begin with a sponsoring employer. A green card is unlikely to be applied for in the first instance, and you’ll probably begin with a work visa from the variety of options. The US Embassy will be the first port of call for most applicants.

Moving to America is not going to be cheap especially if you’re from the UK. Recent Brexit negotiations have made the dollar very favourable against the British pound, but not so great if you’re moving in the opposite direction. With most expats beginning their new life in one of America’s key cities, house hunting can be an expensive business. Despite recent housing market crashes the market is now strong and house price hikes have been seen in key areas such as Seattle, Portland, Tampa, Dallas, Miami, Boston, Detroit and Atlanta. The average price of new homes sold in America rose to $390,440 (£295,243.47). That said, if you’ve found yourself in New York you’ll be looking at an average price of $788, 529 (£596, 349.21).

Schooling will be a key issue for anyone relocating their children as well as their jobs. Most children begin their education before the age of six in kindergarten, ending 13 years later at grade 12. Middle school is composed of students in grade 6-8, with high school beginning at grade 9 and ending in 12. Expats are able to apply for public schools in America (similar to the UK state school system) although as in most countries, the quality of education will be determined by the area moved into. The schools offer a great opportunity for kids to meet friends from the local neighbourhood. International and Private schools offer a different option for expats. Fee paying, and in some instances selective, these educational facilities are considered to offer a better level of teaching however, your children may have to travel great distances to get to school.

If you are considering moving abroad PSS International removals can help. We are a family run company, which has specialised in international removals for over 35 years. We are committed to providing a friendly, professional and stress free overseas move for all our customers. Whether you’re sending a full or part household removal, excess baggage or a vehicle, we will ensure that you receive the highest level of care and attention.

PSS is an international removals company but we are also experts in sending parcels abroad, allowing customers to send on valuable or unusual goods without the cost of full or household removals.

PSS International Removals can send these packages quickly, with our fastest parcels arriving within 24 hours of despatch. This will obviously be entirely dependent upon the delivery location. We can send to a variety of worldwide locations including the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa. We can also deliver throughout Europe.

If you don’t think your parcel fits into any of these options we can customise the delivery.

Your goods may be sent by sea or air, depending upon the size and weight. You will need to supply PSS International Removals with a delivery address.

How Countries Can Attract International Students

UBC Learning Commons, Student studying

UBC Learning Commons, Student studying

In a global economy with a global workforce, a global educational system fit for all is key to the success of both countries and individuals alike.

A new report by the British Council takes a look at 10 countries around the world and analyses them with specific reference to mobility, recruitment, global rankings, scholarships and student residence rights.

The countries included in the report entitled, The Global Race for International Students, are Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE and the United States.

With students now having an abundance of options when choosing to study, higher education institutions have to try much harder in order to entice them to their colleges and universities. The report finds that institutions will need to internationalise their education system to attract those from overseas.

Students have to pay more in tuition fees in order to study abroad. Therefore, international education systems need to make sure that they are offering the highest standards. Students are likely to consider global league rankings as well as the availability of scholarships. Student mobility and their rights once in a new country will also need to be clarified and streamlined.

The rise in technology student’s ability to study anywhere and at anytime is also changing how people study. The report found that countries need to look at this issue and develop plans in order to cope with the changes.

Zainab Malik, Research Director at the British Council, and report author said:

“A nation’s education industry is key to its economic prosperity as well as its long-term international diplomacy, innovation and arts and culture.  Attracting internationally mobile students is pivotal to giving graduates the skills necessary to excel in a shifting economy. Government, the higher education sector and industry all benefit from joining together to create supportive policies that, in the end, provide students with the best opportunities for success.”

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, promoting knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries.

Why Move To Thailand?

For useful articles and tips on moving to other countries and life as an expat, please like the PSS International Removals Facebook page and follow the Twitter profile.

 

Transformer18,Thailand 2008

Transformer18,Thailand 2008

Moving to Thailand offers a wide array of opportunities for expats. Career prospects, especially in the tech market, are on the rise. Furthermore, the climate, culture and beaches are a big positive.

Numbers on how many expats actually live in Thailand vary from 500,000 to one million, but many of those will choose to reside in the capital of Bangkok. Living close to the Skytrain and the MRT travel network is key to getting around easily. Many expats live in the popular areas of the upper and lower Sukhumvit Road and south along the Chao Phraya River.

Thais will call foreigners ‘farangs’ even if they know your first name. Expats shouldn’t be offended. Thais are in general thoughtful and kind. They are law abiding too. In fact, if there is a traffic accident in Thailand, as a foreigner you will be held responsible, based on the fact that if you weren’t living in the country there wouldn’t have been an incident.

In recent years Thailand has become something of a hot-spot for start-ups with American companies offering investment opportunities. Large businesses such as Uber and Google have headquarters in Bangkok as well as accountancy firms such as PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Salaries are good and the cost of living is far cheaper than most European countries. Renting a condominium in the centre of Bangkok can stand at 21,000 baht (£476.616) according to online research database, Numebo. This is far cheaper than living in the centre of London where a one-bedroom flat may cost nearly £3,000 per month to rent.

The weather and the beaches are a big draw to holiday makers and expats alike. The weather is predominantly tropical and humid, but this will be dependent upon where you live in the country. Northern Thailand has three seasons with warm weather eventually interrupted with a monsoon period. In Southern Thailand there are just two seasons – wet and dry and it will see more rain than its northern counterpart.

That said, along with the all the benefits there are of course a few issues about upping sticks and moving to a completely different country and culture. Gaining a Visa has in recent years become a much harder experience especially if you are looking for Thai Permanent Resident status. If you are to gain PR status you can get a work permit and buy a condominium without a foreign money transfer. You’ll need to have had a non-immigrant visa for at least three years, before applying for the PR. Be warned if you outstay your visa you’ll be fined up to a maximum of 20,000 baht and you’ll be deported after 42 days. If deported you’ll be banned from re-entering Thailand.

If you are considering a move to Thailand PSS International removals can help. We are a family run company, which has specialised in international removals for over 35 years. We are committed to providing a friendly, professional and stress free overseas move for all our customers. Whether you’re sending a full or part household removal, excess baggage or a vehicle, we will ensure that you receive the highest level of care and attention.

International Removals to New Zealand the PSS Way

There’s nothing more daunting than moving house. Add in moving to a new location overseas and the enormity of the situation could throw even the hardened traveller off kilter. Packing up your belongings is a difficult business especially if you’re unsure of how to protect your goods or even whether you can take them with you in the first place.

Avoid some of the stress with the help of a family run, experienced business such as PSS International Removals. With over 35 years in the business we have plenty of experience in moving sofas – and lives – to the other side of the world. We also adhere to the highest international standards. These include, FAIM Accreditation, which is the only independent Quality Assurance standard for the International Moving Industry; Membership of the FIDI Global Alliance, which sets a quality benchmark for its members; Membership of the British Association of Removers Overseas Group. BAR OVERSEAS is covered by the I.M.M.I. Advance payment guarantee scheme for your financial protection.

So where to start? Even before you’ve got your visas confirmed we recommend you call our free, no obligation, removal quote service. This will give you an idea of costings and logistics. At PSS we can also send an experienced estimator who will give you advice on sending your goods abroad. Once the quote is agreed you will be given your own moving coordinator to keep you updated.

If you’re planning to send either part or all of your household goods, this is classified as a removal. All of your belongings, which can include a car, will be sent via one container onto the destination.

If you’re moving to New Zealand there are a number of goods you cannot take into the country with you. PSS International Removals can advise you on this but more information can be found here.  You’ll also need specific documentation for your move, which again we can help with. Details are available here.

You have the option of packing your own goods or getting the experts in. If you decide to pack yourself we’ll give you all the boxes and packaging you need to protect everything on its long journey.

If you choose PSS to pack your belongings we will arrange a suitable ‘moving day’ date with you. Once the removal is complete you’ll be given a list of what’s gone and then the container will return to the depot or onto the demarkation port. This will be the last you see of your belongings until they arrive at your new destination.

When shipping your personal belongings to New Zealand the transit time between removal in the UK and arrival at your destination will be approximately 6-8 weeks for full container shipments and 8-12 weeks for part load shipments. PSS International Removals will also make sure you have all the correct customs documentation meeting New Zealand’s requirements.

Soon after you arrive in your new home, PSS will call to arrange the delivery of your goods to the location of your choice. It really couldn’t be any easier. For more information, please visit our website: PSS International Removals
