ICA`s international royalties are competitive and are determined by different factors in the different compensation areas defined for each level. The base salary is calculated, the level of the contract and the current market rate for similar positions, as well as the cost of living and the difficult living conditions of the destinations are taken into account. In addition, aspects such as specialization, task complexity, training or experience may be considered more important than the minimum required. Royalties are negotiated directly with the individual contractor and these factors are accounted for in the compensation areas applicable at each level.
