Sweldong Pinoy and Budget Pinoy for 2021
We planned to update sweldongpinoy.com and budgetpinoy.com to use the 2021 rates before the year ends. However, some of you might want to use our apps using the rates for 2020. You might also be interested to compare how your salary for 2020 and 2021. We have added a dropdown so you can choose the current or upcoming rates. For now, the app will compute using 2020 rates by default. Starting January 1, it will automatically use the new rates. If the increases for next year will be postponed, we will be updating our apps to reflect that.
The android apps of Sweldong Pinoy and Budget Pinoy will be updated in the coming days to use the 2021 rates.
