How does it work?

Enter your average freelance income to compare the amount of free-cash in all major European cities. Free-cash is the money you will have in your pocket after we deduct all mandatory tax, insurance, pension contributions and living costs from your income. Essentially, free-cash is your disposable income available to spend on a brand new phone, holidays or savings.

Our internal model will estimate your living cost based on a number of assumptions. For instance, we think as a single person you would rent a good one bedroom flat in a city centre, or a two bedroom flat with an office, a little further out, as a couple. We also take into consideration your basic entertainment costs - a couple of beers a week and the occasional taxi. Restaurants and nightlife? Absolutely, but not every night!

You can tweak your living costs to match your lifestyle by using an "adjust living cost" option. This will also allow you to add any additional expenses you might have, such as childcare or child maintenance. As a result, you receive an easy to read data that will allow you to estimate the quality of life based on your income, in a city of your choice.

What's inside?

We use four different models to estimate your taxes:

Sole trader. You're running your business as an individual with an unlimited responsibility

Private limited company. You are an owner and a managing director of the company that sells your service.

There are three different ways to pay yourself:

  • Dividends. A single payment made annually out of accumulated profits.

  • Salary. A fixed monthly income you pay yourself to cover your living expenses.

  • Salary + Dividends. A combination of a fixed monthly income with a bonus at the end of the year.

How long does it take to immigrate? This will depend on your country of choice and your current nationality. In some cases, You can buy a one-way ticket the same day you start using our services.
