Indexation

Indexing with the online calculator

With the inflation calculator you can calculate amounts indexed with the national consumer price index (e.g. alimony payments, pensions, etc.) or the inflation rate over any period of time.

Indexation table

For indexing purposes, the FSO recommends the use of the rounded index results according to the indexing table below or the CPI Inflation Calculator.

The complete long series can be found in the indexation tables (XLS file)
