Anyway that was the aim of this post but I had to stop due to my busy schedule as well as some of the points as been mentioned by others.
Be that as it may, It is not as if making a 3k is not attainable, definitely it is but it depends on the migrant situations, skills, profession, financial situation.
E.g 60% of migrant to the Uk are coming for a greener pasture and most don’t really have the sufficient finances to make this trip which usually make them resort to loans and several other means to make the trip possible with the believe once they come to the Uk they will start gathering enough for themselves immediately.
Anyone in this kind of situation should be ready to do anything in the Uk and not necessarily wait till they get there line of job.
Uk employers values people with Skills and professionals and these are the people who make lots of money while others earn less

Honestly for me I learn to ignore insults and abuses on this platform. Fortunately for me I have been doing business with people in the Uk even before migrating as well as have done several business on this platform even when I wanted to sell my car on this platform I know the insults I received but people who have met me on this platform know me. I I try to say things with all sense of honesty.
My post was not actually to deter anyone away from coming to the Uk but was only trying to prepare them of the challenges here most especially those who resort to loan or people who wont have financial means that would atleast last them for a month or two most especially the students who always believe when they come here they will hustle and pay there remaining fees.

There system works here unlike in naija where things are not monitored
|Re: Advice To Every UK Japa Crew by emperorlaqrin: 9:26pm On Jan 15, 2023
God bless you sir. This is exactly my point.
For those Nigerians who have a good job or earning high amount doesn’t have any reason relocating to this place but can only come on a visit while those rushing here through student visa route should be prepared Of what to come

emperorlaqrin:Just wondering how Nigerians that are not business owners reasonably evade tax. It seems impossible to me. Before my money gets to me, tax already deducted and credited on my tax certificate in Nigeria here.

I am utterly confused at the way folks give analysis though. I think every person, family, individual, people, etc have different paths to where they are going.
1. The op is right about tax in the UK but taxes starts from a particular amount of earnings. Tax is quite high.
2. Yep, rent is the next thing that's quite expensive.
3. Bills are currently quite high this winter period due to war in Ukraine and gas supply. Butttt
4. There are January Intake programs for students that have 4 months holiday between trimester 1 and 2 where you can work full time. I have seen folks earn 2300 pounds after tax of 400 pounds in one month from working 20 days meaning they made 2700.
5. Couples could make the husband the dependant and he can work full time.
6. Some students end up switching to work visa through their spouse or even themselves before finishing school.
7. Do not generalize the UK. It's actually 4 countries in one. England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. England is expensive but other places are cheaper to live.
In summary, please do what works for you. Like everything in life. It takes proper planning. Plan yourself well. One thing that you can be a but pleased with is steady power that you will pay for.
Also, don't be deceived about the health sector here though. The facilities are there but they have process crisis. Too many bottle necks to see GPs and get treatment. The service is good but accessing it is hard. Also, if you have kids, no family to drop them with.
|Re: Advice To Every UK Japa Crew by henro757: 11:49pm On Jan 15, 2023
thesmallgod:and your point is?
Do people not get taxed in Nigeria when they get paid salary? infact let me go further people like teachers get taxed more, they are forced to pay Union fees whether they like it or not.
NB I noticed that yah lot in Europe always like to not mention your country, is this some form of big secrete? you are the 11th person to have done this, what country in central Europe pls

What about Canada when compared to UK and other places?
|Re: Advice To Every UK Japa Crew by henro757: 12:08am On Jan 16, 2023
victorsola:typo error, meant less than 200k
Why are you lying, AXA is private Insurance, that's for rich people you as an immigrant going to take private health insurance good luck, even the citizens are not that in a rush to do that, they all pay NI. so your AXA insurance is bullshit sorry!lls
NEPA BILLS is a form of tax cos you pay for what you do not use unless you have prepaid, Don't 4get I live in Nigeria like , Im a Warri boy.
MOT, don't you pay that in Nigeria yearly unless you don't own a car so you wont know
Look do your research they way I did so you can make an informed argument, you are talking absolute Bshyte sorry but you have no clue.
There are taxes you must pay in the Uk whether you work or not these are basic to everyone
PAYE if you work and NI
these are the only two deduction you pay if you are a private individual and you work
There is nothing more every other tax is optional
Una go dey shout tax tax
when it comes to Bills, we all have bills UK Nigeria US, U use U pay
|Re: Advice To Every UK Japa Crew by ATLIEN2027: 12:25am On Jan 16, 2023
If I have to pick between the UK and Canada, I'll choose Canada any day any time.
First, it will be much easier to get your papers in Canada, secondly, Canada is the closest thing to the US except that the population is very low and can be very very cold. It will be easier to grow professionally in Canada if you are smart and willing to learn new technologies.
Canada is also expensive if you are trying to live in the big cities like Toronto but the country is so huge that you have other places that you can move to that are less expensive.

I meant £55k/annum oh not per month

Eaganguolly:If it’s student route it’s better both husband and wife come in while the kids stay back at least for 6months or thereabout depending on their age… when just the student come in, it will be difficult to raise money to complete the school fee and live. But with a partner that can work 40hrs and above then you can take care of your bills. Another thing the OP failed to mention is that everywhere ain’t as expensive as LONDON. Also the UK compromises of other countries which are not extremely expensive to live in. For example in Northern Ireland you will get a very comfortable 2bed duplex for 600£ monthly and you can get a job that pays close to that weekly after tax if you take overtime shift.

gaby:Actually it is
We are cowards
They are not
They win everytime
while they take charge here, they have their kids tucked away in foreign lands giving them the best and grooming them to come back to rule you and your future kids. It is a vicious cycle.

|Re: Advice To Every UK Japa Crew by Zahra29: 1:22am On Jan 16, 2023
All this misinformation is quite startling
You could say that the rate of council tax varies by county/location, but all parts of the UK are subject to council tax
|Re: Advice To Every UK Japa Crew by victorsola: 1:52am On Jan 16, 2023
henro757:u are contradicting yourself. Axamansard in nigeria pays 67k for silver plan yearly not up to what is been paid in the uk in a month , and about your car insurance and all it’s also paid yearly and not monthly. I am telling you this are bills your nepa money that is monthly and it is dependant on if u use prepaid or not . If u use prepaid u don’t have a problem with estimated bills. I am telling you that dir is a difference btw tax and bills . If u work and you are not a Yahoo boy your salary will be taxed but nobody brings unnecessary tax to you in nija . If u don’t do jack . And thier some bills u can choose not to pay in nija . U can have a car and not do the paperwork for years and u can be driving it around. But uk especially. U pay for everything. And u also get taxed with it.

ahiboilandgas:Is doable,I know a lot of couple that surviving it.I even know some with two kids and some that gave birth few months after their arrival.
It's all has to do with a mindset,it depends on city they settled in,is not a must to live in London, Manchester, Birmingham or Leeds.
There are £350 shared apartments with separate bathroom with just only common kitchen.
Northern Ireland is relatively cheaper than England and wales,even in Glasgow you can get £600 pm for a flat.those that goes into health and social care starts making over £2k per month after 3 months on d job.
Students works unlimited hours during holidays and those that are hard working makes a lot of money before school resumes from holidays.
