The largest decrease (10%) took place in the Netherlands(€ 8,857.-) where both costs for People & Organization and FM Management were substantially lower than last year. The Netherlands is followed closely by Denmark (8,5%) (€ 12,030.-), with a steep decline in cost, mainly due to a decrease in rents. Recovery of rents in France, Germany, Portugal and Ireland have resulted in higher costs for occupiers compared to last year while the higher costs in Turkey were attributed to an increase in costs for services. Switzerland (€ 17,862.-) tops Norway and Sweden as the country with the highest occupier cost. Bulgaria (€ 2,513.-), Hungary and Slovakia have the lowest yearly cost in the index.
