Moving your employees to Mauritania

Mauritania, located in the northwest region of Africa, is a country with untapped potential and promising opportunities. Its economy is primarily driven by natural resources such as iron ore, gold, and copper, as well as the expanding fishing and agriculture sectors. The government has been actively pursuing economic reforms and foreign investment, further enhancing the country’s appeal to international businesses.

The political landscape in Mauritania has been stable in recent years, providing a conducive environment for businesses to operate and grow. A stable political climate fosters economic growth, infrastructure development, and enhanced opportunities for trade and investment.

With Arabic as the official language, and French and local languages such as Wolof, Pulaar, and Soninke also widely spoken, Mauritania offers a multilingual environment that can facilitate business communication and operations.

International businesses looking to expand into Mauritania will find a wealth of untapped markets, a strategic geographical location, and a growing workforce. As the country continues to develop and diversify its economy, the opportunity for foreign enterprises to establish a strong foothold in this emerging market is greater than ever.

Key immigration facts about Mauritania

Navigating the immigration process in Mauritania requires a thorough understanding of the various visa categories and requirements. Foreign nationals intending to travel to Mauritania for work, business, or tourism have several visa options to choose from, depending on the purpose of their visit.

Tourist visas allow for short-term stays for leisure or personal reasons, while business visas cater to those engaged in commercial activities or attending business-related events. Employees relocating to Mauritania for work will need to obtain a work visa before commencing their new position.

Foreign nationals intending to work in Mauritania for over 60 days are required to obtain a Work Permit. The validity of the permit depends on the length of the employment contract. A licenses are typically valid for two years, while B licenses are valid for four years. However, in current practice, Mauritania only issues six-month licenses.

Income Tax in Mauritania

Understanding the tax implications of working in Mauritania is crucial for both employers and employees. Tax residents in Mauritania are subject to taxation on their worldwide income. However, if taxpayers can provide evidence that their foreign income has already been taxed in another country, it will not be subject to double taxation in Mauritania.

Non-residents, on the other hand, are only taxed on their income sourced from Mauritania. The country employs progressive tax rates for employment income and pensions, ensuring a fair and equitable taxation system.

VAT in Mauritania

In addition to income tax, businesses operating in Mauritania must also be aware of the country’s value-added tax (VAT) regulations. The standard VAT rate in Mauritania is 16%, which applies to most commercial operations, subject to certain exclusions.

There are specific rates for certain industries and services, such as a 20% VAT rate for petroleum products, and an 18% rate for telephony services. Exportation of goods and services is subject to a 0% VAT rate, promoting the growth of international trade.

A 14% special tax on financial activities (mainly banking, money transfers, and currency exchange operations) is applicable instead of the standard VAT. This special tax rate targets the financial sector and its unique set of transactions.
