Help determine fair allowances for all your assignees, wherever they come from

Calculate cost of living allowances for your expatriate assignees in over 370 locations using factual and objective price information. Examining more than 200 goods and services, our surveys are conducted by professional researchers in each location. Carefully chosen vendors reflect only those outlets where your expatriates can buy goods and services of international quality.

Our Cost of Living Reports are based on the multinational approach to cost of living, which assumes expatriates spend the same in the host location, regardless of home country. City-to-city indices help set appropriate allowances.

Multinational Methodology

The Multinational approach to Cost of Living develops cost-of-living indices and differentials based on a blended international spending pattern. The methodology assumes a convergence of spending patterns among expatriates from different nationalities. With weighting of goods and services the same for all locations, this approach compares prices of similar brands and from similar retail outlets in both the home city and host city.
