My job offer include:

Base salary: 185000 AED per year
Accomodation Allowance: 33000 per year
Car Allowance: 18000 AED per year
Health Insurance: Around 4000 AED per year
Flyback to my home country (Europe): maximum of 12000 AED per year - paid at occurrence

With a monthly income of: 15416 + 2750 + 1500 = 19600 AED, can I have a good life (save some money) and raise my family? I have one wife (at the beginning she won't be working, just taking care of my kid), 1 kid (1 year old) and 2 cats.

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards.

Hey mate, I donít know what youíre making back home or anything about your lifestyle or what type of work you do, but Iím going to be brutally honest here and say that itís a very low offer for a family man. The base is not so terrible but you will need 3x the accommodation allowance just to rent something decent.
