                              ROPAX is definitely the best consistent money (as in, the companies mostly pay high, not only a few) at junior ranks, CalMac pay nearly £50k for third engineers.

                              I’d say across the UK based firms probably 50% of ROPAX guys pay tax, but in that 50% there is probably 10% avoiding tax by being smart. A lot of the ships are abroad at midnight so fully cover the SED tax rules for refunds. Of the ships that operate fully within the UK or are in the Uk at midnight there are British guys working there but living abroad in Spain, they do one agency trip a year on a foreign sailing vessel if they don’t dry dock abroad as that ticks the foreign voyage box to get your tax back. Living abroad gets them the tax nights in.

                              I’ve worked the English Channel which was easily tax free with one foreign holiday a year, and I’ve worked Scotland to N.Ireland which I paid income tax but paid the lowest band of national insurance which was essentially a £300 a month pay rise.
