Make sure that you are contributing enough to any pension or share save schemes to secure the maximum match or contribution from your employer.
E.g. if your employer will match your pension contribution up to 10% of your salary, be sure to contribute 10% of your salary.
Likewise, if your employer will grant you an additional share for every one that you buy, then buy as many as you can.
You will need to have a strategy for divesting these shares over time so that you are not left overexposed to your employers stock. That is a subject for another day.

Every Tuesday, I send out a short email to British expats who want to make the most of their finances.
My aim is to help them reduce taxes, invest smartly and understand their options.
It usually only takes a few minutes to read.
To receive it in your inbox, just enter your name and email address below (I’ll also send you a copy of my latest UK expat tax guide).
I promise that I won’t send you spam (I hate it too) and you can unsubscribe at any time.
