Moving your employees to Lesotho

If you’re contemplating expanding your business operations into Lesotho, you’re not merely considering a new location but unlocking a treasure trove of untapped potential. While Lesotho may be a landlocked country, its strategic location makes it an effective gateway to the broader markets of Southern Africa. 

Beyond geography, the nation offers a stable political environment and places a strong emphasis on sustainable development and social responsibility, factors that contribute to a favorable business climate. 

Moreover, English, being one of the official languages, eliminates the language barrier, which is often a concern in international relocations. In summary, Lesotho offers not just market opportunities but also a favorable environment for global business operations.

Key immigration facts about Lesotho

Immigration is often a maze of complex regulations and red tape, but our expertise ensures that you don’t have to navigate this labyrinth alone. In Lesotho, the process begins with securing a Work Permit, followed by a Work Visa for the employee. Typically, these permits are valid for up to two years and may be extended under certain circumstances. For short-term business visits, a Business Visa would suffice. If employees are moving with their families, dependents would need to secure appropriate permits as well.

Income Tax in Lesotho

Adhering to tax regulations in Lesotho is not just a legal necessity but also a strategic imperative for any business. Lesotho’s income tax regime operates on a progressive scale, with individual tax rates going up to 35%. Corporate entities, on the other hand, typically face a tax rate of around 25%, although there may be incentives available for certain sectors or activities. Both resident and non-resident individuals are liable to pay tax on any income generated within Lesotho’s borders.

VAT in Lesotho

The Value-Added Tax (VAT) regime in Lesotho is another crucial aspect that businesses must carefully navigate. With a standard rate of 15%, VAT compliance is not just a requirement but a complex operational function that needs careful planning. Failure to comply could result in not just financial loss due to fines but also irreversible reputational damage. Lesotho’s VAT system does offer some flexibility, with certain goods and services qualifying for zero-rating or exemptions.
