Moving your employees to Togo

If you’re considering relocating your business or employees to Togo, it’s important to have a good understanding of the country’s economic and political environment. Togo is a small country located in West Africa, bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east, and Burkina Faso to the north.

In terms of its economy, Togo has experienced steady growth in recent years, with a GDP growth rate of 5.3% in 2019. The country has a relatively diversified economy, with agriculture, mining, and services sectors all contributing to its GDP. The government has also implemented a number of economic reforms in recent years to improve the business climate and attract foreign investment.

In terms of political stability, Togo has a presidential system with a unicameral parliament. The current president, Faure Gnassingbé, has been in power since 2005. Despite occasional political unrest, the country has generally maintained a stable political environment in recent years.

The most commonly spoken languages in Togo are French, Ewe, and Kabye. For international businesses, Togo offers a number of advantages, including its strategic location in West Africa, its relatively low cost of living, and its growing economy. Additionally, the country has a number of investment incentives in place, including tax holidays and exemptions for certain types of businesses.

Key immigration facts about Togo

Navigating the immigration process in Togo can be complex, with different visa requirements and application procedures depending on the type of visa being sought. At Breedj, we have extensive experience working with clients to ensure that their immigration needs are met in a timely and efficient manner.

In general, nationals from certain countries, including Benin, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Niger, and Senegal, do not need a visa to enter Togo. Additionally, individuals with diplomatic and service passports from China and Morocco do not require a visa.

For those who do need a visa, there are several types available, including tourist visas, business visas, and immigration visas. Tourist visas are designed for individuals traveling to Togo for tourism or other non-business-related purposes, and are typically valid for up to 90 days. Business visas are intended for individuals entering the country for business-related purposes and are also valid for up to 90 days. Immigration visas are designed for foreigners intending to live in Togo long-term.

The specific requirements for each type of visa can vary, but in general, applicants will need to provide a passport that is valid for at least six months, with two blank pages. Other common requirements include copies of the employee’s first two passport pages, a completed visa application form, two recent passport-size photos, proof of a return flight, travel insurance for the duration of the stay, and a yellow fever certificate. Immigration visas also require proof of income, such as a bank statement, as well as proof of health insurance and a motivational letter for moving to Togo.

Income Tax in Togo

Understanding the income tax system in Togo is essential for any business or individual considering relocating to the country. At Breedj, we can provide guidance and support to ensure that you understand your tax obligations and can comply with local regulations.

In general, residents of Togo are taxed on their worldwide income, while non-residents are taxed only on their Togo-source income. Non-residents who have spent at least six months in Togo and have a tax domicile in Togo are taxed as residents.

Taxable income in Togo includes industrial and commercial profits, non-commercial profits, agricultural profits, employment income (including benefits in kind), capital gains and income from property, securities, and other assets. Industrial and commercial profits, non-commercial profits, and agricultural profits are taxed at a rate of 30% after deduction of expenses.

The tax rates in Togo are progressive, with rates ranging from 0.5% to 35%. For those with annual earnings exceeding XOF15 million, a formula is used to calculate income tax: Tax = (Taxable income – XOF15 million) x 0.35 + XOF3,021,500.

Non-residents who spend more than six months in Togo during the fiscal year are taxed at the same rates as residents. It is important to note that Togo has signed double tax treaties with several countries, which can affect the taxation of foreign companies doing business in Togo.

VAT in Togo

Value-added tax (VAT) is an important consideration for businesses operating in Togo. At Breedj, we can help you understand your VAT obligations and ensure that you comply with local regulations.

The standard VAT rate in Togo is 18%, and it applies to most goods and services sold in the country. However, companies that supply certain services, including financial, insurance, medical, and transport services, are exempt from VAT.

Businesses that are registered for VAT in Togo are required to file regular VAT returns, which include details of their VAT-liable transactions and any VAT that they have paid or collected during the reporting period.

Failure to comply with VAT regulations in Togo can result in penalties and fines. That’s why it’s important to work with a partner like Breedj, who has a deep understanding of the local regulatory environment and can help you stay in compliance.
