What information can I get / What can I use Xpatulator.com® for?


You can use Xpatulator.com® for: 


1) Free international cost of living location overviews and cost of living ranking information covering 13 cost of living baskets and all major global locations.

2) Premium Content Calculators. Register, buy locations online and you can run the premium content calculators and receive your reports online within minutes.

2.1) Salary Purchasing Power Parity (SPPP).
SPPP calculates how much you need to earn in another location to compensate for cost of living, hardship, and exchange rate differences, in order to have the same relative spending power and as a result have a similar standard of living as you have in your current location. You can re-run your reports for each location purchased for the time period purchased, either seven days or an annual subscription.

2.2) Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) - typically used for an expat on a short term assignment.
The COLA report calculates how much additional allowance (over and above your current salary) you need to earn in another location to compensate for a higher cost of living, hardship and the exchange rate, in order to have the same relative spending power and as a result have a similar standard of living as you have in your current location. You can re-run your reports for each location purchased for the time period purchased, either seven days or an annual subscription.

2.3) Cost of Living Index (COLI).
The COLI report calculates cost of living indexes for the locations you select using the home location you specify. You can select between one and all host locations purchased. You can choose from any one or all of the 13 baskets for each location. You can re-run your reports for each location purchased for the time period purchased, either seven days or an annual subscription.

2.4) International Assignment Management (IAM) - typically used to build a package for an expat on a longer term assignment from between 6 months to 5 years.
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. Recommended for the calculation of the compensation and benefits for a typical expatriate assignment of a six month up to a five year duration using your choice of home and host location. You can re-run your reports for each location purchased for the time period purchased, either seven days or an annual subscription.
