Cost of Living Allowance Calculator

The COLA calculates how much additional allowance (over and above the current salary) an individual needs to earn in another location to compensate for a higher cost of living, a greater degree of hardship and the ruling arbitrage exchange rate, in order to have the same relative spending power and as a result have a similar standard of living as experienced in the home location.

This calculator is recommended for calculating a cost of living allowance for short-term assignments and a detailed cost of living comparison basket by basket.

International Assignment Management Calculator

The IAM report sets out clear guidelines to make an international assignee/expatriate's transfer fair and financially viable, taking cognisance of the reward structure and market dynamics of the home and host country. The calculations use the build-up / balance sheet / home based approach and include hypothetical tax, cost of living index, hardship premium, exchange rate, expatriation premium, benchmark housing allowance and benchmark transport allowance. The objective is to ensure consistent equitable treatment and benefits for all expatriate assignees and have a user friendly reward structure to provide seamless coverage for different family scenarios.

This calculator is recommended for the calculation of the compensation and benefits for a typical expatriate assignment of six months up to five years duration using your choice of home and host location.

Salary Purchasing Power Parity Calculator

This calculator allows you to calculate an equivalent salary, when moving to a city in another location, whereby the salary is adjusted for cost of living variances between the two to ensure the same standard of living.

This calculator is recommended if you are an organization planning to relocate an employee to an international location, or an individual with a job offer in another country, use the current home location salary to calculate the equivalent host location salary in terms of purchasing power.
