We investigate the precision within which a simulated dark matter halo mass function can be rescaled to a different set of cosmological parameters. Our tests show that the accuracy almost linearly depends on the difference of the cosmological parameters and amounts to few percent in the case of WMAP5 and PLANCK parameters. The rescaling thus allows us to obtain a mass function with better precision than the one given by the Sheth-Mo-Tormen approximation and even more modern fits currently used
