How we calculate world taxes

We have trawled through the quagmire of tax legislation for 16 of the World's major economies and created a comparable position as close to the UK's PAYE (Pay As You Earn) system for employed people.

We look at each country's taxation for employed people, as well as things like medical care which are part of social contributions for some countries or require mandatory purchase of health insurance.

Combining this information lets us calculate taxes for each of the 16 countries and then do not only a taxation comparison but also a comparison of buying power based upon commonly purchased items.

It is quick and easy to use and you can get a detailed result at the click/tap of a button!

We currently support the following countries - by clicking on the links below you can just do an individual tax calculation for those countries - or scroll up and compare tax between two countries directly!
