Moving your employees to Senegal

Senegal presents an exciting prospect for international businesses seeking to expand their operations. As a rapidly growing economy in West Africa, Senegal boasts a stable political environment and a strategic geographical location, making it an attractive destination for foreign investment.

The country benefits from a diversified economy, with strong sectors including mining, tourism, and agriculture. Additionally, the emerging tech scene and digital infrastructure offer promising opportunities for businesses in the IT and digital industries.

Senegal’s political stability, underpinned by a strong democratic tradition, fosters an environment conducive to business growth. This stability ensures predictability and security for your business operations.

The official language of Senegal is French, but English is increasingly being spoken, particularly in business circles. This linguistic diversity can facilitate smooth communication for international businesses.

Key immigration facts about Senegal

Navigating the immigration process is a crucial aspect of relocating employees to a foreign country. In Senegal, the process is governed by specific regulations that require thorough understanding and careful handling. At Breedj, we possess the expertise to guide you through this process efficiently and compliantly.

There are several visa types that allow foreign nationals to enter Senegal, depending on the purpose and duration of the stay. For those planning to work in the country, a work permit is mandatory.

The most common types of work permits issued in Senegal are local-hire work permits and assignment work permits. The choice between these depends on various factors, including the employee’s qualifications, the nature of the work, and its duration. Breedj’s experts are skilled in evaluating these variables to secure the most appropriate permit for your employees.

For short-term business activities such as contract negotiations, conference attendance, business meetings, training seminars, or professional networking, the Senegalese government issues business visas.

For long-term employees, a work permit is essential. As part of our comprehensive service offering, Breedj manages this process, ensuring that your employees are legally compliant with Senegal’s immigration regulations.

Income Tax in Senegal

Tax compliance is a significant aspect of operating a business overseas, and understanding the local tax regulations is essential. In Senegal, the income tax structure is progressive, meaning the tax rate increases as the taxable income increases.

Senegalese tax residents are subject to tax on their worldwide income, regardless of where it’s generated. Moreover, any salary earned for work performed in Senegal, or for an employer established in the country, is subject to income tax.

The Personal Income Tax (PIT) is applied to the taxable income of individuals, including net salaries. The tax calculation uses a system of income splitting, where the income is divided into shares (personal allowances). Each share is taxed at progressive rates, and the total tax payable is calculated by multiplying the tax for each share by the number of shares.

VAT in Senegal

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a key part of the tax landscape in Senegal. It is applicable to most commercial operations, subject to certain exclusions.

The standard VAT rate in Senegal is 18%, which applies to a wide range of goods and services. However, the tourism sector enjoys a reduced VAT rate of 10%, promoting the growth and development of this vibrant industry.

In addition, Senegal applies a 17% special tax on financial activities, predominantly banking, money transfers, and foreign exchange operations. This special tax is levied instead of the standard VAT.

Understanding and complying with the VAT regulations can be complex, especially for businesses new to the Senegalese market. At Breedj, our team of tax experts ensures that your business is fully compliant with all local VAT regulations. We offer comprehensive VAT planning and compliance services, helping you navigate the intricacies of Senegalese tax laws.
