Remote worker going to South America

I am now 100% remote working. Make about $200k USD per year. 6 foot even. A bit overweight but I'm fasting and getting fit. I used to speak conversational Spanish but it's a bit rusty now. I'd prefer a Spanish speaking country (including Spain) but Brazil has my interest currently. I'm not interested in learning another language and would rather just get better at Spanish. Argentina seems like a great place to start. Will I make it bros?

    I should also mention I'm 38 years old. White. I am primarily going to meet girls. My Tinder game is solid as is my one on one game. I don't drink so bars/clubs have never been my best gaming experiences. What are my chances?

    First of all does your employer (presumably US) know you're gonna work in Brazil? Don't land them or yourself in hot trouble when that can easily be avoided. Your stats are fine in either Brazil or Argentina.

        I have no assets abroad. All bank accounts are and will be US accounts. I may buy real estate abroad and will report to IRS. All taxes will be paid.

        Alright that does clear a few things up. But hey if you have banking and phone stuff figured out that's important. Have fun in Brazil / Argentina

    Do you have an address in the US to be taxed normally? Will you use a VPN to hide your location from your employer?

        How the frick can I not seethe you shitbag? From Jan 2021 to March 2022 I partied everyday and fricked a different girl approx every 3 days.

        Since I’m not a coding dork homosexual, and don’t want to teach English, I was RIPPED away from my 15 month dream life and forced to work 12 hour shifts at shitty jobs where everyone is miserable and angry because life in America sucks ass. I go to work and sleep 5 days a week and have 48 hours of “””free time”” where a large chunk of that is lost to sleep, and errands.

        Meanwhile, I know all the pieces of shit that I met and hung out with are STILL doing what I did for 15 months, but they get to do it INDEFINITELY with a constantly replenishing source of money to blow in the hundreds of thousands despite their living expenses probably being 3-4k a month.

        I simply do not have the IQ or willpower to just learn to code so don’t you dare suggest or any other homosexual side hustle.

        I understand your seething. It’s quite unfair that I’m able to do this. I don’t even really work that hard. If I were in your position, I would seeth too.

        At least you get it, you shitbag. It’s all effortless because you have a higher IQ and you’re probably kind of a DORK so you weren’t getting inundated with offers from women

          At least you get that you have a low IQ. I’m definitely not a dork, nor am I a natural born alpha. I know where I need to improve and so I do it. My cousin is a 6’2 alpha and naturally attracts women in ways I simply cannot. He’s my best friend and being around him has showed me the true nature of women and what attracts them. I learn from him and I help him with money on occasion when he needs it. I accept who I am but the difference between me and you is that I am smart and can improve every aspect of my life. You cannot raise your IQ but seething about it won’t help.

          I have a question for you. What were you doing for money for those 15 months? Can you not save money again and do it again for another 15 months? In which country were you?

            Of course, that’s currently what I’m doing, but it still sucks ass to have to live in America for 1-2 years between those stints.

            You don’t need to learn to code to have a high laying remote tech job moron. Learn how to do operations, project management, product ops, recruiting, HR etc.

            that all sounds like some female customer service tier dogshit. I’d rather work on a frickin fishing boat with Filipinos

          Like I said your IQ is permanent and immutable. But lots of lower IQ people can become financially successful. You say you don’t have the willpower but that is something you can work on.

    Bad idea unless your employer is 100% onboard. Does not matter if it is a startup or corporation. I have personally seen friends get fricked over on this.

          Exactly this can be some deep shit for you and your employer if you come from the fricking United States. You should read up on FATCA and citizenship based taxation in this fricked up country. If you were a citizen of literally any other country besides Eritrea (which also does this by the way) it would be no problem. However unfortunately you are presumably American working for a US employer your chances are fricked unless the employer is cool with it and prepares to make the appropriate tax filings etc.

            FATCA is about paying US taxes. If you pay US taxes, what exactly is there to worry about?

              It's not just about taxes. It's about reporting your financial assets abroad to the US government and it's about foreign banks not wanting to deal with you because of American reporting requirements. You're gonna pay US taces because you get paid in USD. But what good is that if you can't transfer it into local currency without all the bullshit hoops involved to even open a bank account? Your US employer also needs to comply with local labor laws. Which means taking some money out to pay into social programs you are a part of if you take permanent residence in another country as an American.

                Not every country uses SWIFT for their banking. Your cards may not work in some east / southeast European countries for example. If they do, maybe only in certain areas where there is infrastructure to support that.

                I think you are overthinking it. Visit the US once or twice a year and get more cash, absolute worst case. If you have a bank account in the foreign country, and last I checked this is not an insurmountable goal, who cares if they report the balance to the US government? At what stage is your employer involved? I am genuinely interested/curious what the pitfalls of this could be but I am just not seeing it.

                He is overthinking it. There is no scenario where 'local labor laws' come into play whatsoever, except if a country determines you were working illegally, which some arguably could but as a remote worker earning $$ in the US from a US company, you'd have to be a moron to get yourself into trouble. The bigger issue is finding a long term visa structure

                There's no need to have a local bank account and you're usually better off holding dollars long term anyways

                >Your US employer also needs to comply with local labor laws. Which means taking some money out to pay into social programs you are a part of if you take permanent residence in another country as an American.
                This isn't the fricking EU we're talking about, in South America you can just ignore this bullshit until/unless it actually becomes a problem, then start paying them

                wait is that necessary? a quick search suggests it is not necessary unless you do it through a trust/corp AND the value is over a certain amount.

            FACTA is irrelevant unless anon sets up and gets paid directly into foreign bank accounts. And even then all it means is that you have to file an FBAR every year listing foreign accounts.

            Citizen based taxation isn't inherently a problem either. If he is a w2 worker he should just not change anything, file&pay fed&state taxes as normal. If 1099 then claim foreign exclusion as soon as eligible for fed taxes and stop paying state taxes all together if really long term out of the US.

            Whether or not the company would have an issue with this or if it causes a headache for them I have no idea. Thats for him to determine directly with his employer. But there is no inherent issue with remote work on US income from the perspective of the IRS/federal government

          again, looking for a specific example. i am aware of the issues but even paying taxes to another country is not something the employer would find out about.

    If you can work remote just travel the world using Airbnb. Staying permanently in Brazil without speaking português would’ve awful. Advise against it. Even just visiting can be aids honestly

    If your employer is down with you working overseas then move to Spain with their digital nomad visa. If not, and you are just winging it then I recommend Mexico City to start out with and then eventually check out other safe Latin American countries such as Argentina or Uruguay.
