The tool calculates the net salary of a local employee in a given location and compares it to the cost of the same salary incremented by the ‘plus’ allowances, benefits and relocation costs incurred by the fact that the incumbent has been hired from a different country.

The HBCCP Calculator gives you the flexibility to take various additional elements into account:

  • Foreign social security costs on the part of the employee or employer, alongside their fiscal impact in the host location
  • One-time or recurrent ‘expat’ allowances or benefits, such as housing or education, calculated based on Mercer’s comprehensive mobility data
