Moving your employees to Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea is a promising destination for businesses seeking to expand their global footprint. Its economy, driven by hydrocarbon production and a burgeoning infrastructure sector, has experienced significant growth in recent years. This growth, coupled with political stability and the government’s commitment to fostering a business-friendly environment, makes Equatorial Guinea an attractive destination for international businesses.

Located in Central Africa, Equatorial Guinea is a multilingual nation, with Spanish, French, and Portuguese being the most spoken languages, allowing for effective communication and collaboration with international partners.

There are several reasons why businesses may want to consider expanding their operations to Equatorial Guinea. The country’s strategic location offers easy access to both African and international markets, providing ample opportunities for growth and expansion. Additionally, the government’s investment in infrastructure development and its commitment to diversifying the economy create a favorable environment for businesses across various sectors.

Key immigration facts about Equatorial Guinea

Navigating the immigration process in Equatorial Guinea is an essential aspect of a successful relocation. Here are some key facts to keep in mind:

Temporary visas are required for entry, with exceptions for Tunisian and US nationals. To obtain a visa, applicants must contact an Equatorial Guinea Embassy in Belgium, Cameroon, China, Ethiopia, France, Gabon, Morocco, Nigeria, the Russian Federation, Spain, or the United States.

The labor ministry issues five types of work permits, with varying durations and conditions, from Permit A (PA) for short-term work to Permanent Permit (PP) for long-term employment.

A company must apply for a work permit on behalf of its foreign employee before they begin working in Equatorial Guinea. The application should be filed with the employment office of the city where the employer resides or where the employment contract will be executed.

Prior to applying for a work permit, a person must first obtain the authorization of recruitment.

Income Tax in Equatorial Guinea

Understanding the income tax system in Equatorial Guinea is crucial for both employers and employees. Here are the key points to consider:

Resident individuals are taxed on their worldwide income, while non-residents are taxed only on their Equatorial Guinea-source income and certain transactions and services carried out in the country.

Residency is determined based on the individual’s presence in the country for more than three months in one calendar year, or more than six months over two years. Specific rules apply to individuals working in the oil and gas sector.

Taxable income includes salaries, wages, benefits in-kind, cash allowances, pensions, annuities, dividends, interest, royalties, income from self-employment, capital gains, and per diems for attending directors’ board meetings. Some position-related allowances may be exempt if used effectively and not excessive.

Capital gains from company mergers are exempt if the new company is registered in Equatorial Guinea or another CEMAC state.

Income tax rates for resident individuals are progressive, up to 35%. Non-resident individuals are subject to a final withholding tax on their gross income from Equatorial Guinea sources, generally at 20%.

VAT in Equatorial Guinea

Value-added tax (VAT) is another crucial aspect of doing business in Equatorial Guinea. Here are the essential details to consider:

VAT is imposed on the supply of goods or services and on imports, but companies engaged in the oil and gas sector are exempt from VAT in Equatorial Guinea.

The standard VAT rate is 15%, with a zero rate applying to exports and similar transactions.

Certain products are subject to a reduced rate of 6%, while others are exempt, and some are assessed with a special duty tax at a rate of 30%.

Transactions subject to special duty taxes will be assessed at a 30% rate instead of the standard 15% VAT.
