Moving your employees to Tunisia

Tunisia, a vibrant economy located in the heart of the Mediterranean, offers significant opportunities for businesses looking to expand internationally. This country possesses a robust economic structure, characterized by diverse sectors such as tourism, agriculture, and manufacturing, which collectively contribute to a stable and growing economy.

Politically, Tunisia has been a beacon of stability in the region, with a democratic system that supports a conducive business environment. The country’s political stability is a reassuring factor for global organizations considering expansion into Tunisia.

As a multilingual society, Tunisia boasts a workforce fluent in Arabic, French, and a growing number of English speakers. This linguistic diversity enhances communication and integration for international businesses and their relocated employees.

Why should your business consider Tunisia? The answer lies in its strategic geographic location, attractive investment incentives, a highly skilled and cost-effective labor force, and an improving ease of doing business. These factors combined make Tunisia an appealing destination for businesses seeking to extend their global footprint.

Key immigration facts about Tunisia

Understanding the immigration landscape is a crucial component of international employee relocation. In Tunisia, this process is characterized by a well-structured and straightforward system.

Foreign nationals wishing to visit Tunisia for less than three months need to secure an entry visa, which can be obtained from Tunisian embassies or consulates. However, it’s worth noting that nationals from European Union countries, Canada, and the United States are exempt from this requirement.

For those planning to engage in employment in Tunisia, a work permit is mandatory. This permit is issued by the Ministry of Training and Employment, which first ensures that job opportunities have been made available to Tunisian citizens. The application process requires a variety of documentation, including a résumé, relevant diplomas, and a certificate verifying that a local Tunisian with similar qualifications was not available for the position. The work permit is granted for a specific period, not exceeding one year, and its renewal requires approval from the ministry.

The requirements for residence permits in Tunisia usually mandate that applicants first possess a work permit. Certain nationals, such as those from France and the Union of the Arab Maghreb, may enjoy special work and residence privileges.

Income Tax in Tunisia

The tax landscape of a country plays an essential role in determining the financial implications of relocation for businesses and their employees. In Tunisia, the taxation rules are well-defined and structured.

All individuals considered as tax residents in Tunisia are subject to Personal Income Tax (PIT) based on their worldwide income. This includes foreign-sourced income, except for income that has already been taxed abroad. For non-resident individuals, income realized in Tunisia is subject to income tax, generally through a withholding tax applied by the Tunisian debtor.

The net income for salaried employees is calculated as the gross salary reduced by the mandatory social security contributions paid to Tunisian social security organizations and a 10% deduction for professional expenses, capped at TND 2,000.

For certain foreign employees, such as those working in Tunisia for periods not exceeding six months per fiscal year and specific foreign nationalities like managers and trainers, the income tax may be due at a flat rate of 20% of their gross income.

VAT in Tunisia

In Tunisia, Value-Added Tax (VAT) is a crucial aspect of the fiscal system, influencing the cost of goods and services. Understanding VAT is essential for businesses and their employees to navigate their financial landscape effectively.

The Tunisian VAT Code governs the application of VAT, which is due on all transactions taking place within the country. When goods are sold and delivered within Tunisia, they are considered subject to VAT.

The standard rate of VAT is set at 19%. However, certain designated operations may attract lower rates of 7% or 13%. This multi-tiered structure is designed to balance the tax burden across different types of goods and services.
