Cost of living in Belgium/ Ghent vs Oudenaard (Gent)

Hi Everyone,

I have a client in Oudenaarde and there has been talk of working for him full time but when he asked me to name my salary for such a position I was a little hesitant as I am not familiar with the cost of living (housing, food, transport etc.) and the tax system there. What would be an acceptable salary for a mid-level project manager?

Obviously it would be cheaper to live in Oudenaarde, but what is the social life like there for a single person? Is it practical to live in Ghent and commute to Oudenaarde? How much would this cost? Can anyone give me tips on what it would cost to rent a 2 bedroom flat with utilities in Ghent Vs Oudenaard? What is the tax situation in Belgium?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated
