Moving your employees to Angola

Angola is a rapidly developing country with a growing economy, making it an attractive destination for international businesses looking to expand their operations. With vast natural resources and a strategic location in southern Africa, Angola offers many opportunities for businesses seeking to tap into the African market.

Angola’s political stability has improved significantly in recent years, with a democratically elected government and a commitment to promoting foreign investment. Additionally, Angola’s government has implemented a range of policies to attract foreign investors, including tax incentives and streamlined business registration processes.

The most widely spoken languages in Angola are Portuguese, Umbundu, Kimbundu, and Kikongo, making it relatively easy for businesses with Portuguese-speaking staff to communicate with local employees and customers.

Angola presents many opportunities for international businesses, particularly in sectors such as oil and gas, mining, agriculture, and tourism. With Breedj’s global mobility and employee relocation services, we can help your organization navigate the complexities of relocating to Angola, ensuring a smooth and successful transition.

Key immigration facts about Angola

In Angola, various types of temporary visas may be granted to foreign nationals who intend to come to the country, depending on the reason and period of stay. The appropriate visa for undertaking remunerated activities in Angola is the Work Visa, which is granted for 365 days and is extendable for equal time periods until the end of the term of the employment agreement that justified the visa.

Tourism Visas are granted by Consular Missions at the applicant’s country of origin or residence, for business prospection or family reasons, and for engaging in scientific and technological activities, as well as to those foreign nationals who intend to stay in Angola for recreational, sporting, or cultural activities. Tourism Visas allow their holder to stay in the country for 30 days, which can be extended twice for the same time period. It is important to note that Tourism Visas do not allow their holders to perform remunerated activities in the country, for which a Work Visa is required.

Temporary Stay Visas, which are granted for 365 days and are extendable for the same time period, until the end of the term of the reason that justified the visa, may be granted in the following circumstances:

  • To accomplish missions within religious institutions or within nongovernmental organizations
  • For scientific research, mobility or university extension
  • To family members of study, medical treatment and work visa holders
  • To family members of holders of valid residence permits
  • To spouses of Angolan citizens

Before applying for a Work Visa, a favorable opinion from the entity overseeing the sector of activity in Angola is required. The Work Visa must be applied for at the Angolan Consulate or Embassy in the applicant’s country of origin or residence.

Income Tax in Angola

In Angola, the Labor Income Tax (IRT) is levied on the income of self-employed workers (liberal, commercial, and industrial professionals) or employees (dependent workers). All remuneration received in the form of wages, salaries, fees, allowances, gratuities, subsidies, prizes, commissions, participations, attendance fees, emoluments, participation in fines, costs, and other remuneration constitute income from work accessory for the purposes of this tax.

The Labor Income Tax (IRT) is payable by natural persons, whether residing or not, in the national territory, whose income is obtained from services rendered, directly or indirectly, to natural or legal persons with domicile, head office, effective management, or permanent establishment in the country.

The PIT Code foresees the segmentation of income into Groups, namely:

  • Group A: Generally applicable to the income earned by employees.
  • Group B: Income earned by self-employed workers.
  • Group C: Income earned by individuals carrying out an industrial or commercial activity listed in the minimum profits table in force, attached to the PIT Code.

When the taxable income is determined by the service provided based on one’s accounting records, the available records of purchases, sales, and services rendered, or the data available by the tax authorities according to the specific rules applicable to taxpayers of Group B, the tax is subject to a 25% tax rate. Taxpayers maintaining accounting books and records, simplified accounting model, or purchase and sale or services provided registration book are allowed to deduct up to 30% of incurred expenses in the computation of taxable income. Taxpayers of Group B with no organized nor simplified accounting models are not entitled to deduct costs, and the tax is levied over all income.

VAT in Angola

Value-Added Tax (VAT) is levied on the transfer of goods, the provision of services carried out in the national territory, for consideration, by a taxable person, acting in that capacity, as well as on the importation of goods in Angola.

The Value-Added Tax rates are as follows:

  • 14%, as a general rate applicable to all operations carried out by taxable persons under the general regime.
  • 7%, on the effective receipts of the taxable persons of the simplified regime.
  • 5%, for import and transfer operations of various goods included in the table annex I of the Value-Added Tax Code, as well as for agricultural inputs.
  • 2%, for the importation of goods and the transfer of goods carried out in the Province of Cabinda

It is important to note that taxable persons who engage in commercial or industrial activities must register for VAT purposes with the Angolan tax authorities. Registered taxpayers must file regular VAT returns and remit VAT due to the tax authorities.
