You can therefore optimise the employer cost and run your package deal calculations on more than 3,000 country combinations.

Our digital remuneration calculator (more than 200,000 calculations) is recognised by our clients for the strength of our algorithms and the transparency of our methodology and sources. It is Reliable (constant data updates) and Flexible (can be adapted to your policy). Our many users welcome its user friendly nature and the clarity of the calculations, whether for HR or for the expatriates themselves.

Package deal calculations and employer costs

On the basis of the guaranteed net in the country of origin (U-shaped curve), you will obtain the equivalent remuneration in the host country, factoring in:

  • The proportion of consumption to which the COLA cost of living allowance is applied (two local indices: local or expatriate or your own index)
  • The savings proportion
  • The cost of housing abroad (with or without deduction of a housing standard)
  • The allowance for social cover and income tax

The Premium version allows you to incorporate all our help and advice services and project costs over 5 years.

The Comprehensive version allows you to select assignment or expatriation as regards social cover.
