Cost Projection

Cost projection is an invaluable tool for a company to provide an indication of the value of an assignment.

Cost projections evaluate the balance between potential cost to the company and the expected benefit to the business of the assignment.

Santa Fe uses industry benchmarks, its experience and refined calculation processes to provide highly accurate projections of the cost of an assignment against the information in your policy. All cost projections are offered in a simple layout that can be delivered in a variety of electronic formats to suit the needs of your business.

Santa Fe’s cost projections provide an estimated total cost of an assignment. The calculation takes into consideration relevant compensation models, allowances and likely relocation costs based on a specific scenario. The cost projection includes adjustments for Cost of Living Adjustment (CoLA) data depending on the destination. In addition, Santa Fe will liaise with your chosen tax provider, or can provide through its own tax provider, the necessary hypo tax calculations to complete the cost projection.

Santa Fe is also able to provide speculative cost projections without specifi c hypo tax calculations in order for clients to evaluate the “cost” of a number of candidates for a particular assignment.
