Ease of doing business in Namibia

Ranked 104th out of 190 countries in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index for 2020, Namibia offers a comparatively welcoming environment for businesses. However, this ranking should not lull companies into a false sense of security. Namibia has its set of rules, regulations, and cultural nuances that organizations need to fully comprehend. 

Breedj serves as your compass in the Namibian market, helping you stay updated on evolving laws, ensuring you remain compliant, and offering expert advice to transform regulatory challenges into business efficiencies. Our local knowledge becomes your strategic advantage, allowing you to move swiftly and safely in this ever-changing business landscape.

Hiring in Namibia

Organizations looking to establish their footprint in Namibia have two main avenues for staffing: setting up a local entity or employing an Employer of Record (EOR) service like Breedj. The first option requires an extensive understanding of the local legal framework and involves time-consuming paperwork. This can be a considerable diversion of valuable resources away from your core business activities. 

Breedj provides an agile, efficient alternative. As your trusted EOR in Namibia, we oversee all HR-related tasks—from the meticulous vetting of candidates to managing their payroll, benefits, and contractual obligations. This frees your internal teams to focus on what they do best: growing your business.

Statutory labor laws in Namibia

When it comes to labor laws, Namibia has its own set of unique regulations that you can’t afford to overlook:

Employee Probation Period: Namibian labor laws stipulate that an employee can be kept on probation for a period of up to three months. This specific time frame allows you ample opportunity to assess the suitability of new recruits in real-world work conditions.

Annual Leave Entitlements: In Namibia, an employee is generally entitled to a minimum of 24 working days of annual leave per year, not including public holidays. Knowing this can aid you in effective manpower planning, ensuring that your workflow remains undisturbed throughout the year.

Maternity and Paternity Leave: Female workers are entitled to 12 weeks of maternity leave, and paternity leave is typically negotiable but often falls within the range of 3-10 working days. Such information is critical for effective workforce planning, especially for roles that require a continuous presence.

Sick Leave: Namibian labor laws provide a sick leave entitlement of up to 30 days in cycles of 36 months. Understanding and planning for this enables you to manage your resources effectively without unexpected disruptions.

By having Breedj as your EOR partner, you can be sure to be on the right side of all these laws. We meticulously ensure that your operations are conducted in a manner fully compliant with Namibia’s statutory requirements, minimizing legal risks and thereby enhancing your brand’s reputation.

Social security in Namibia

In Namibia, both the employer and employee are required to contribute to the Social Security Commission. Typically, the employer’s contribution is a set percentage of the employee’s gross salary, covering benefits such as retirement, medical insurance, and other social amenities. Given the legal ramifications of incorrect or delayed contributions, it is crucial to manage these aspects diligently. 

Breedj takes the headache out of this process for you. We manage all facets of social security contributions—registration, accurate calculation, and timely payment. This allows you to operate in Namibia without the stress of administrative burdens and compliance-related anxieties, giving you a clear path to focus on your core business objectives.
