Short-term Allowance Calculator


ECA's Short-term Allowance Calculator provides a choice of regional bases on which to create consistent allowances in the host location, whatever the nationality of the assignee.

Allowances are calculated to cover day-to-day essentials costs in the host location more cost-effectively than extending the provision of per diems making them ideal for assignments of up to one year's duration. The allowance calculated assumes that the assignees continue to receive their home country salary and that host accommodation is paid for by the company.
