Ease of doing business in Tunisia

Tunisia, strategically positioned at the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, offers a compelling business environment for international organizations. The World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index ranks Tunisia 78th.

The index assesses economies based on several indicators such as starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, and more. Tunisia’s latest ranking in this index reaffirms its commitment to fostering a business-friendly environment.

This signifies a relatively streamlined and efficient business framework that is conducive to international operations. It implies that the country has robust mechanisms for dealing with legal, regulatory, and bureaucratic procedures, which are key considerations for international businesses.

Even with a favorable ease of doing business rank, entering a new market always poses unique challenges – from navigating local labor laws to understanding cultural nuances. This is where Breedj steps in. We help you traverse this landscape with ease, ensuring your operations in Tunisia are smooth and compliant, thus allowing you to reap the full benefits of Tunisia’s business-friendly environment.

Hiring in Tunisia

Global companies looking to enter the Tunisian market have typically two options: setting up their own entity or leveraging Tunisia Employer of Record (EOR) services.

The first option, while seemingly straightforward, can be a complex and time-consuming endeavor. Establishing a local entity requires a deep understanding of local employment laws, which are often intricate and distinct from those in other countries. Without this local knowledge, organizations run the risk of non-compliance, which can lead to fines, reputational damage, and other issues.

As your Tunisia EOR partner, Breedj becomes the legal employer for your workforce in the country. We manage all administrative and HR tasks, from hiring and onboarding to payroll and benefits administration. Most importantly, we ensure strict adherence to Tunisia’s employment laws, allowing you to maintain a compliant workforce without the hassle of navigating these regulations yourself.

Choosing Breedj’s Tunisia EOR solution not only simplifies the hiring process but also provides peace of mind. You can focus on your core business objectives while we handle the complexities of local employment. With Breedj, hiring in Tunisia is efficient, compliant, and worry-free.

Statutory labor laws in Tunisia

Understanding and adhering to the statutory labor laws of a country is a fundamental aspect of conducting business there. In Tunisia, these laws cover a range of areas, each carrying its own specifications and requirements.

For instance, the probation period for employees varies according to their role. Workers, or “agents d’exécution,” have a probation period of 6 months, while first line supervisors, or “agents de maîtrise,” have a probation period of 9 months. For executives, the probation period extends to a full year.

When it comes to annual leave, employees accrue one vacation day per month, leading to a total of 12 vacation days after a year of service. 

Maternity leave in Tunisia is up to 30 days of leave. To receive 66.7% of their daily earnings during this period, an employee must have contributed to social insurance for at least 80 days in the four quarters leading up to the birth. Paternity leave, on the other hand, allows fathers one day of paid leave within the first seven days following the birth of their child.

Sick leave benefits are also covered under Tunisian law. An employee can receive sickness benefits, equating to 66.7% of their daily average earnings for 180 days after a five-day waiting period, provided they have at least 50 days of covered employment in the last two quarters or 80 days in the last four quarters before the sickness began.

As your EOR partner in Tunisia, Breedj ensures your business adheres to these statutory labor laws, keeping you compliant and your employees protected. Our deep understanding of local regulations allows us to navigate this landscape efficiently, providing a smooth employment experience for you and your workforce.

Social security in Tunisia

Tunisia has a comprehensive social security system that is financed by contributions from both employers and employees. As an employer, you are responsible for contributing 16.57% based on salaries, which is reduced to 0.5% for wholly industrial exporting companies. Employees, on their part, contribute 9.18% based on their salaries. Employers are tasked with the responsibility of collecting and remitting the social security contributions from each wage-earner to the relevant authorities.

For individuals carrying out independent activities, they have the liberty to choose one social regime among the options provided by the social authorities.

Navigating these social security requirements can be complex, especially for international organizations unfamiliar with the local systems. This is where Breedj comes in.

As your EOR partner in Tunisia, Breedj handles the complexities of the Tunisian social security system on your behalf. We manage the collection and payment of social security contributions, ensuring you remain compliant with all local laws and regulations. 

Our expertise in Tunisian employment practices allows us to seamlessly handle these obligations, providing you with a worry-free employment experience. With Breedj, you can be assured that your operations in Tunisia are compliant, secure, and efficient.
