World of Expats is keen to provide you with the information that you need to ensure that you make a successful transition to your new expat lifestyle.  As part of this we are making available Salary Expectation’s Worldwide Cost of Living Salary Calculator.  This will calculate the minimum net salary you require in 140 cities in 93 countries to improve your standard of living.  This will ensure that you know whether the salary you have offered will be adequate or if you need to negotiate an increase.

The salary expectation calculator uses the cost of living indices from The Economist Intelligence Unit's Worldwide Cost of Living Surveys, to determine the minimum salary you need to improve your standard of living. Both Mean and High cost of living indices are used, which means that the minimum salary you need to maintain your current standard of living will also be calculated.
