Moving your employees to Sierra Leone

Making the strategic choice to expand your operations to Sierra Leone opens doors to a unique and rapidly evolving marketplace. The country is characterized by a youthful, burgeoning population and a wealth of natural resources that include diamonds, rutile, and bauxite. 

The Sierra Leone government has been making concerted efforts to enhance foreign investment by adopting investor-friendly policies. They have also been focusing on infrastructure development and have identified key sectors with high growth potential, such as agriculture, mining, and tourism. 

The fact that English is the official language in Sierra Leone reduces the communication barriers that many international businesses might face when expanding into new territories.

Key immigration facts about Sierra Leone

For any organization looking to relocate staff to Sierra Leone, a comprehensive understanding of the country’s immigration policies is paramount. Generally, foreign nationals wishing to work in Sierra Leone need both a work permit and a resident permit. 

The Ministry of Labour and Social Security usually issues work permits, and these permits are generally valid for a year, with renewal options. The Immigration Department is in charge of issuing resident permits.

In Sierra Leone, individual income is subject to a progressive Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax system, with rates that range from 5% to 30%. On the corporate side, the standard tax rate is 30% for non-mining companies and 25% for companies involved in mining. 

Additionally, Sierra Leone has enacted Double Taxation Agreements with various countries to prevent the double taxation of income.

VAT in Sierra Leone

In Sierra Leone, the Value-Added Tax (VAT) system is another tax component that businesses must understand deeply. The standard VAT rate is 15%, applied to most goods and services. However, there are certain goods and services that are zero-rated or exempt from VAT altogether. For businesses, understanding these exemptions and rates is crucial for effective financial planning and compliance.
