Moving your employees to Seychelles

Seychelles is an archipelago nation in the Indian Ocean known for its thriving tourism industry and stable economy. With a high-income classification by the World Bank, Seychelles presents an attractive destination for international businesses seeking expansion opportunities. The country’s political stability, coupled with its business-friendly policies, makes it an ideal environment for growth and development.

The official languages of Seychelles are English, French, and Seychellois Creole, enabling easy communication and integration for multinational companies and their employees. Seychelles’ diverse cultural landscape and strategic location near major trade routes further enhance its appeal as a prime destination for international businesses.

Expanding your operations to Seychelles brings numerous advantages, such as access to a skilled workforce, favorable tax environment, and opportunities to tap into the growing tourism sector. Additionally, the country’s strong commitment to environmental sustainability and renewable energy offers the potential for innovation and collaboration in these industries.

Key immigration facts about Seychelles

Navigating the immigration process in Seychelles is simplified, thanks to its visa-free access for all foreign nationals. Visitors must possess a valid passport, return or onward ticket, proof of accommodation, and sufficient funds to cover their stay. Upon arrival, a Visitor’s Permit is issued free of charge, initially valid for up to three months. Extensions are available for a fee, with the total stay not exceeding twelve months.

Foreign nationals seeking employment in Seychelles are required to obtain a Gainful Occupation Permit (GOP), or work permit, at least 10 weeks before commencing work. The prospective employer or self-employed individual must submit the application. It is important to note that foreigners cannot enter Seychelles for employment purposes without a valid GOP.

Additionally, employees will need a resident permit, typically granted to individuals with family connections, those making significant contributions to the country, or those who are not prohibited immigrants. Factors such as professional qualifications, character, and potential benefits to Seychelles are considered during the application process for work permits and resident permits.

Income Tax in Seychelles

Understanding the income tax system in Seychelles is essential for both resident and non-resident individuals. All individuals deriving gross income from Seychelles are subject to personal income tax, with residents taxed on their worldwide income. Taxable income encompasses employment income (including fringe benefits), gains on the disposal of business assets, income from business or professional activities, and investment income (dividends, interest, royalties, fees, rental income, etc.).

Benefits in kind are subject to the non-monetary benefits tax, with the taxable amount depending on the specific benefits. Individual income tax rates are progressive, with the highest bracket set at 30%. Additionally, a 20% tax is levied on non-monetary benefits paid to employees, with employers responsible for payment under the monthly payroll tax filing.

Being well-versed in the income tax regulations of Seychelles is crucial for organizations and individuals alike, ensuring compliance and the proper management of financial obligations.

VAT in Seychelles

Value Added Tax (VAT) is an essential aspect of the Seychelles tax system, applicable to the supply of goods and services within the country and on imports. Familiarizing yourself with the VAT structure is crucial for businesses operating in Seychelles to ensure compliance and accurate financial reporting.

The standard VAT rate in Seychelles is 15%, which applies to most goods and services. However, a 0% rate is applicable to certain supplies, as outlined in the relevant tax legislation. It is important to be aware of the specific VAT rates and exemptions for your business activities to avoid any potential issues with tax authorities.

By having a thorough understanding of the VAT system in Seychelles, your organization can confidently navigate the local tax landscape and maintain accurate financial records, ultimately contributing to the successful expansion of your business in the country.
