Ease of doing business in Senegal

According to the World Bank’s latest index, Senegal has made considerable strides in enhancing its business environment, marking it as an increasingly attractive destination for international organizations. This ranking is a testament to the country’s ongoing commitment to regulatory reforms, streamlined business processes, and transparency, all of which significantly contribute to the ease of doing business.

However, despite these encouraging advancements, global enterprises must be mindful that operating in a foreign jurisdiction comes with its unique set of challenges. The implications of Senegal’s ranking for international organizations extend beyond the surface level. They embody the nuances of local regulations, business customs, employment laws, and bureaucratic procedures, which can be complex and time-consuming to navigate.

This is where Breedj comes into play. We leverage our local expertise and deep understanding of Senegal’s business landscape to provide a comprehensive employer of record solutions. With Breedj, you can bypass the intricacies of setting up an entity, mitigate compliance risks, and focus on what you do best—growing your business. We transform the challenge of doing business in Senegal into an opportunity for your organization’s global expansion.

Hiring in Senegal

As global companies venture into the Senegalese market, they are met with two distinct options. The first is to establish their own entity, which, while providing complete control, brings with it the inherent risk of non-compliance with stringent local employment laws. This route not only requires a deep understanding of the country’s regulatory framework but also a significant investment of time and resources.

The alternative—and often the more strategic choice—is to leverage the Employer of Record (EOR) solutions provided by Breedj. With Breedj, you can bypass the complexities of entity setup and focus instead on building a high-performing team. We handle the administrative and legal hurdles, so you can concentrate on driving your business forward in the Senegalese market. In essence, our Senegal EOR solution is more than just a service, it’s a strategic business advantage.

Our Senegal EOR services allow your organization to hire local talent swiftly and compliantly, without the need to establish a legal entity in Senegal. This not only accelerates your entry into the market but also ensures adherence to all local employment laws, reducing risk and providing peace of mind.

Statutory labor laws in Senegal

Understanding and adhering to local labor laws is a crucial element of conducting business in any foreign jurisdiction. In Senegal, these laws have specific provisions designed to protect both employees and employers. For instance, probationary periods are permitted, with executives allowed up to three months and non-executives up to one month. These periods may be renewed, providing an opportunity for both parties to evaluate the employment relationship.

Annual leave entitlement in Senegal is generous, with employees granted 24 days of paid annual leave. Maternity leave is also comprehensive, with female employees entitled to 14 weeks of paid leave, eight of which must be taken post-childbirth. However, it’s important to note that there’s no statutory paternity leave.

Sick leave benefits vary based on length of service. Employees with less than 12 months of service are entitled to one month of full pay and three months of half pay. For those with more than 12 months but less than five years of service, the provision is one month of full pay and four months of half pay. Employees with over five years of service are entitled to two months of full pay and five months of half pay.

These laws can seem complex and challenging to navigate for foreign businesses. However, with Breedj as your Senegal EOR provider, you can rest assured that we will manage these requirements on your behalf, ensuring full compliance with all statutory labor laws. With our local expertise and commitment to compliance, your business is in safe hands.

Social security in Senegal

In Senegal, social security is an integral part of the employment landscape, designed to provide protection and support to workers. Employer contributions are mandatory and are calculated based on an annual ceiling of XOF 756,000, which represents the annual salary on which contributions are applicable.

The rate for family benefits stands at 7%, while the rate for industrial accidents varies from 1% to 5%, depending on the nature of the business. Furthermore, contributions to the National Retirement Fund are shared between the employer (60%) and the employee (40%). The general scheme contribution rate is 14%, with an annual ceiling of XOF 4.320 million. For executives, the contribution rate is 6%, with an annual ceiling of XOF 12.960 million.

Managing these contributions can be complex, particularly for organizations new to the Senegalese market. However, with Breedj as your Senegal Employer of Record, we take care of these obligations on your behalf. We handle the calculations, deductions, and payments, ensuring that your business remains compliant with Senegal’s social security regulations. 

By entrusting these responsibilities to Breedj, you can focus on your core operations, secure in the knowledge that your employees’ social security contributions are expertly managed.
