Your choice, to come to Dubai for purely financial reasons is wrong, think of the greater experience and lifestyle....Am I missing anything?
accommodation 17000 ( 3bed: 200k AED annual rent) Depends, 140 in Mirdiff..
school fees 3300 Dunno
nursery 2000 Dunno
car 8000 (monthly rental) How much? Is that for 2 cars? I've just rented a Mitsubishi Galant for 2400/month
fuel 150 Way too small, reckon on this a week
agency fee 2000 (24k AED annual fee) 5% deposit and 5% commission is usual (negotiable)
gym 1000 What's a "gym"?
elec/water 2000 On high side, prob nearer 1000/month
food 4000 Depends how much you eat, 2-3k is nearer the mark
entertainment 3000 I take it this does NOT include BEER????
Savings 12000 (not worth moving if no savings) Erm....
Total monthly 54450 AED
Wow, so the 36k AED per month I have been offered is totally unrealistic if I want to save, enjoy Dubai, school my children and live in a house comparable to the one I have in the UK?
