Ease of doing business in Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea presents unique opportunities for global companies seeking to expand their operations, but it is essential to be aware of the challenges that come with doing business in this region. According to the World Bank’s latest Ease of Doing Business Index, Equatorial Guinea ranks 178th, indicating that there is room for improvement in terms of regulatory frameworks and business-friendly policies.

This ranking implies that international organizations considering expansion into Equatorial Guinea must be prepared to navigate complex administrative processes, regulations, and local labor laws. It is crucial to have a thorough understanding of these challenges in order to minimize potential risks and maximize the benefits of entering this promising market.

Partnering with Breedj not only mitigates the risks associated with navigating unfamiliar regulations but also enables you to focus on your core business objectives, ensuring a successful and compliant expansion into this emerging market.

Hiring in Equatorial Guinea

Global companies looking to hire talent in Equatorial Guinea have two main options: setting up their own local entity or partnering with an Employer of Record (EOR) service provider like Breedj.

Social security in Equatorial Guinea

Understanding and adhering to social security regulations is essential for companies operating in Equatorial Guinea. Both employers and employees are required to contribute to the National Social Security Fund (INSESO) and the Work Protection Fund.

Employer contributions consist of 1% of the employee’s gross salary to the Work Protection Fund and 21.5% to INSESO. Employee contributions are calculated as 0.5% of their net salary (net after the deduction of tax and INSESO contributions) to the Work Protection Fund and 4.5% of their gross salary to INSESO. The net salary is based on the administrative practice of calculating and paying both contributions using gross salaries.

Compliance with these social security regulations is crucial for maintaining a legally sound and successful business operation in Equatorial Guinea. Breedj’s EOR services ensure that your organization meets these requirements, providing you with peace of mind and allowing you to focus on your core business objectives. Our local expertise and knowledge of social security regulations in Equatorial Guinea enable us to seamlessly manage these obligations on your behalf, ensuring full compliance and minimizing potential risks.
