The Short-term Assignment Per Diem Calculator is designed specifically for employees on international assignments lasting 3-12 months. It is intended to provide a fixed daily living allowance, equitable to all assignees in the same host location, regardless of salary level or home country. Our per diem recommendations will allow you to establish budgets in lieu of managing expenses.

Mercer's per diem recommendations are based on the spending patterns of short-term assignees with use of self-catering facilities. As a result, Mercer's per diems provide a much more appropriate and costeffective solution than relying on government or other publicly available data designed for business travelers staying in hotels.

The Short-term Assignment Per Diem Calculator can be easily designed to match your company's practices:

  • Three standard levels are offered, letting you choose the per diem allowance based on your company's budget and spending assumptions. The key variables in the options are the number of restaurant meals and the type of transportation assistance.
  • Alternatively, you can customize the market basket elements according to your own specifications.
