Moving your employees to Gambia

Gambia, a vibrant West African nation, is increasingly gaining attention as a promising destination for international businesses. The country’s economy is primarily driven by agriculture, tourism, and retail trade, with a growing focus on expanding its industrial base and attracting foreign direct investment. Gambia’s political landscape has undergone significant transformation in recent years, leading to improved stability and enhanced prospects for long-term growth.

The official language of Gambia is English, which is widely spoken throughout the country, making communication seamless for international organizations. Other prevalent languages include Mandinka, Wolof, and Fula, which provide an opportunity for businesses to engage with local communities and foster strong relationships.

The decision to expand your business operations to Gambia offers numerous benefits. The country’s strategic location along the Atlantic coast, coupled with its growing economy, presents a unique opportunity for businesses to access the broader West African market. Additionally, Gambia’s stable political environment and diverse cultural landscape create an appealing setting for companies seeking to establish a foothold in the region.

Key immigration facts about Gambia

Navigating the immigration process in Gambia is a crucial step in ensuring a successful relocation experience for your employees. Here are some essential facts to be aware of:

  • Gambia offers several types of visas for foreign nationals, depending on the purpose and duration of their visit. It is imperative to select the appropriate visa category for each individual.
  • Foreign employees and other foreign nationals planning to reside in Gambia must apply for a residence permit.

The Gambian government issues three categories of residence permits:

  • Type A: Designed for international students and retired foreign citizens.
  • Type B: Reserved for citizens of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and other foreign nationals employed in skilled positions.
  • Type C: Catering to skilled workers and small traders.

Applicants must obtain necessary immunizations and gather all required documents to support their residence and work permit application.

Once the application is complete, it must be submitted to the relevant embassy. Applicants should remain in their country of residence while awaiting approval.

Income Tax in Gambia

Understanding the income tax system in Gambia is essential for businesses and employees relocating to the country. Here are some key points to be aware of:

Residents in Gambia are subject to tax on their worldwide income, while non-residents are taxed on most Gambian-source income, unless an applicable tax treaty provides otherwise.

Employment income, including most employment benefits, is taxed under the Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) system. This ensures that taxes are deducted at source, simplifying the tax payment process for both employers and employees.

Profits derived by an individual from carrying on a trade or profession are generally taxed under the PAYE system as well, streamlining the tax process for self-employed individuals and small business owners.

VAT in Gambia

Value Added Tax (VAT) is an important aspect of Gambia’s taxation system that businesses and employees should be familiar with. Here are the key points to consider:

The standard rate of VAT in Gambia is 15%. This rate applies to most goods and services sold within the country.

Certain goods and services are exempt from VAT. These exemptions include basic food items, financial services, educational services, and specific imports. This ensures that essential items and services remain affordable for the general population.

Some supplies may be subject to a zero rate, which effectively means that no VAT is charged on these goods and services, though businesses can still claim input tax credits.
