Ease of doing business in Madagascar

Madagascar presents a unique opportunity for global organizations seeking to establish a presence in the region. According to the World Bank’s latest Ease of Doing Business Index, Madagascar ranks 161 out of 190 economies, reflecting the country’s commitment to creating a conducive business environment for both local and international enterprises.

This ranking holds significant implications for international organizations considering expansion into Madagascar. It signifies the country’s dedication to streamlining business processes, reducing bureaucratic hurdles, and fostering a regulatory framework that supports economic growth, but also a still complex bureaucratic process. 

Despite the overall positive business climate, organizations must still navigate the intricacies of local labor laws and regulations to ensure compliance. This is where Breedj’s Madagascar EOR solutions can make a significant difference, by providing expert guidance and support to ensure a seamless and compliant expansion into the country. 

By partnering with Breedj, your organization can capitalize on the favorable business conditions in Madagascar while minimizing risk and reducing the burden of managing complex regulatory requirements.

Hiring in Madagascar

Global companies exploring expansion into Madagascar have two primary options for hiring local talent: setting up their own legal entity or partnering with an Employer of Record (EOR) provider, such as Breedj.

Establishing a legal entity in Madagascar can be time-consuming and complex, with the added risk of non-compliance due to unfamiliarity with the country’s strict local employment laws. This approach requires a significant investment of time and resources, as well as continuous monitoring and adaptation to ensure adherence to Madagascar’s ever-changing regulations.

Alternatively, Breedj’s Madagascar EOR solution presents a more efficient and compliant option. By choosing Breedj as your Madagascar EOR partner, your organization can leverage our extensive local expertise, ensuring compliance with local labor laws and regulations. 

Our services eliminate the need to establish a separate legal entity, thereby accelerating your entry into the Madagascar market. With Breedj handling the legal and administrative aspects of employment, your organization can focus on strategic growth and operational success in the region.
