Moving your employees to Egypt

Egypt is a country with a rich cultural heritage, a growing economy, and a strategic location at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. With a population of over 100 million people, it is the most populous country in the Arab world and one of the largest economies in Africa. Egypt’s economy is diversified, with sectors such as tourism, agriculture, and manufacturing contributing to its growth.

Political stability is an important factor for businesses considering expansion into a new market. Egypt has made significant progress in this area, with the government implementing reforms aimed at promoting stability and attracting foreign investment. In recent years, Egypt has undergone a process of economic reform, including the liberalization of trade policies and the simplification of business regulations. The government has also made efforts to improve infrastructure, including investing in transportation and energy projects.

The official language of Egypt is Arabic, but English is widely spoken, especially in business circles. Other languages spoken in Egypt include French, Italian, and German. Cultural differences between Egypt and other countries may require some adjustment, but Breedj offers cultural training and language support to help your employees adapt to their new environment.

Egypt offers many advantages to businesses looking to expand their operations. Its strategic location makes it an ideal hub for companies looking to do business in the Middle East and Africa. The country has a large and growing consumer market, with a young and educated population that is increasingly connected to the global economy. In addition, Egypt has a well-developed infrastructure, including ports, airports, and highways, making it easy to transport goods and people.

Key immigration facts about Egypt

If you are considering relocating employees to Egypt, it is important to understand the immigration and work permit regulations that apply to foreign nationals. Here are some key immigration facts about Egypt that you should be aware of:

Under Egyptian labor law, foreign visitors who want to work in Egypt on a full-time basis need to obtain a work permit. Work permits are granted to expatriates by the Ministry of Manpower and Immigration on an individual basis, and are valid for one year. The work permit can be renewed annually up to a maximum of five years, unless exceptional approval is received from the Ministry of Manpower and Immigration. The renewal process usually takes 10 to 15 working days, depending on the employee’s nationality.

To apply for a work permit in Egypt, the applicant should have a legal entity in Egypt through which they apply for enrollment. The applicant’s position should add value to the Egyptian legal entity, meaning that they should be an expert in their area of specialization, as administrative positions are not acceptable for enrollment. Additionally, the applicant should have at least three years of relevant experience in the same position that they will be holding in the Egyptian legal entity. Finally, the Egyptian legal entity should comply with the labor ratio of 9:1, meaning that there should be nine Egyptian full-time employed and socially insured employees for each expatriate employee.

Income Tax in Egypt

If you are planning to relocate employees to Egypt, it is important to understand the country’s income tax system. Here are some key facts you should be aware of:

In Egypt, income tax is imposed on three sources of income:

Worldwide income from employment or dependent services paid by the Egyptian government or any Egyptian public organization, regardless of the employee’s residence, the place where services are rendered or the place of payment

Egyptian-source income paid by Egyptian or foreign companies or by private sector enterprises to any employee resident in Egypt or resident abroad, in return for services rendered in Egypt (pension payments are excluded)

Non-Egyptian-source income paid to a resident employee or individual if Egypt is the location of the headquarters of the individual’s commercial, industrial or professional activity

Under Egyptian law, individuals are deemed to be residents of the country where they have a permanent domicile. A person who resides in Egypt for a period exceeding 183 days during a calendar year is deemed to be resident in Egypt for tax purposes. Nonresident individuals and expatriate experts (as defined) are generally taxed on Egyptian-source income only.

The tax rates for individuals in Egypt range from 0% to 22.5%, depending on the amount of taxable income. There are also various deductions and exemptions available to taxpayers, such as deductions for social insurance contributions and exemptions for certain types of income.

VAT in Egypt

Value-added tax (VAT) is an important consideration for businesses operating in Egypt. Here are some key facts you should be aware of:

The standard VAT rate in Egypt is 14%, and it applies to most goods and services. However, machinery and equipment used for industrial purposes have a special treatment and rate if it is proved that they are only used for industrial activities.

Registered businesses in Egypt are required to charge VAT on their taxable supplies and file VAT returns with the tax authorities on a monthly basis. The VAT returns must be submitted by the 15th day of the following month.

There are various VAT exemptions and special treatments available under Egyptian law. For example, certain types of medical supplies, educational services, and financial services may be exempt from VAT. In addition, some goods and services may be subject to a reduced VAT rate of 5%.
