Cost Estimate Calculator


ECA's Cost Estimate Calculator provides you with an accurate picture of the cost of your international moves, simply and quickly.

This intuitive tool offers an in-house solution for instant access to cost estimates, easy to use by mobility teams and non-specialists alike. It comes pre-populated with ECA's robust Cost of Living and Location ratings data, as well as our recommended best practice assignment benefits and allowances settings. ECA's tax logic is also built in, to calculate home hypothetical tax and to gross-up the total move costs.

The calculator will enable you to create a cost estimate in less than a minute and run unlimited calculations and revisions.

ECA's Cost Estimate Calculator is an invaluable tool for our business. Its accuracy and efficiency have greatly improved our decision-making process, and the user-friendly interface and comprehensive features make it an essential asset in our project planning. Highly recommended!
