Belgium, Brussels. Cost of living.

As I mentioned before I have plans of moving to another country.
From time to time I'll write countries' survey.
I'm going to disclose following points: tax, transport, food, average salary, flat rent

Today It'll be Belgium, Brussels.

So lets go and have a look on cost of living.

  • Tax:
From first sight Belgium is associated with highest tax. Lets check it.
I looked through "Centre for Tax Policy and Administration".
The table is below. Tax is 55.4%.

  • Transport:
Here are some sample prices:
Single ticket – 1.50 EUR
5-ride ticket – 6.70 EUR
10-ride ticket – 10.50 EUR
Day pass – 4.00 EUR


  • Average salary:

  • Rent a flat of apartment:
All is simple here. We're google Brussels rent flat and take investigation on this point.
Instantly, I've found http://www.brusselshome.be and take a look on flat with 1 bedroom and 1 toilet. It costs 700 EUR + 125 EUR (charges) but I guess you may find flat cheaper. After rental survey it can tell the range is 500 EUR to 1500 EUR.

you know, as i saw average salary ~50k. don't forget that they pay tax :), as i saw it was ~50%.
so perhaps salary grow down to 25k ^). because in my case as i told you they proposed me near 1.7 euro per/month so ~20k per year (but -25% because of tax). but the appartment in the center of the city in bratislava ~350euro+70-100 euro(charges). ~450euro. and food costs not so expensive like in Beussels, i'm sure. but the idea is great. maybe you should create something like table where you show everything.

sorry fro misstakes, i took one bottle of wine in fridge... he he.. it is one of our benefits on a job.

i'm still waiting you here, in Bratislava... here a good point to move to the Austria or any other country.

go go go. don't stop there any more !

good survey
i'll separate it new post and add new details.

what is about transport cost?

Dmytro

as i know it's very expensive in western coutries, for example, metro minimal 2 euro, bus 2-3 euro, but it depends. so don't forget ~100 euro every month on a transport (as minimal) oooh my god, this is crazy, i spent in Kiyv 7-10 euro per month :)

but i suppose you should add clothes, cinema/theater, bar/disco, medicine.

i don't thing that just food and flat will be enough for you :) because if it is so, what is good in EU ? :) just the name? :)

2Vlad Vissoultchev: Why EU is sooooo bad place. I simply don't understand. If you lived in Kiev you would definitely feel real Ukrainian life.

In my opinion, smart ukrainians with don't have enough opportunity instead of EU.

And one more point, if you're street cleaner, labourer or something else you will have 200 USD....
