Re: End of the 'expat' benefits ??

Actually, this makes me realise there was one difference for me - the local schools could not offer my 14 year old daughter a place - she went 4 months without any schooling at all and we sent her to International School as a last resort. So I do believe I have a right to feel a bit cross .
So:
- you uprooted a 14 year old (from the UK?, exams in 2 years)
- did not plan her schooling before you arrived here
- left her unschooled for 4 months

And then moan about not getting tax relief because you had to run around and arrange private, expensive schooling

Which is expensive because companies pay it for short term high flyers on expat deals...
