Moving your employees to Somalia

Choosing to establish or relocate your business operations in Somalia is a significant decision that carries both great risk and great potential. Somalia has a wealth of natural resources, including vast reserves of oil and natural gas, which could prove invaluable for energy companies. The nation also boasts a strategic location along the Gulf of Aden, one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. 

Key immigration facts about Somalia

Somalia’s immigration landscape is fraught with complexity due to its unique geopolitical situation and frequent changes in regulations and government oversight. While work visas and permits are generally required for foreign nationals, the conditions and durations of these permits can vary significantly. In Somalia, it’s not uncommon for the immigration laws to change with little notice.

Somalia employs a progressive personal income tax structure, with rates that range from 6% to a maximum of 12% based on your income level.

VAT in Somalia

Value-Added Tax (VAT) in Somalia is still a developing concept, with the country currently employing a general sales tax that functions in a similar manner. The existing tax rate stands at approximately 10%. Navigating this relatively immature system can be challenging, but non-compliance is not an option.
