Angola is a country situated on the west coast of southern Africa, with a vast territory measuring up to twice the size of France!
Geographic location: The country borders Namibia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, and the Atlantic Ocean. Interestingly, Angola also has authority over Cabinda, a resource-rich exclave province to the north of the country.
Economy: While Angola is currently classified as a lower-middle income nation, its economy is one of the fastest-growing in Africa, with a Gross Domestic Product estimated at USD 72 billion. This economic growth is mainly driven by the country’s bountiful natural resources, which include petroleum (accounting for roughly 50% of its GDP), natural gas, and minerals (including gold, diamonds, platinum, copper, manganese, phosphates, uranium, and feldspar).
Population: As of 2021, Angola’s multi-ethnic and multi-cultural population is estimated to have reached 32.87 million, giving the country a sizeable workforce. An additional advantage is that most of the population speaks fluent Portuguese, which can add great value when working with European countries.
Value-added tax (VAT)
The standard VAT rate is 19% in Algeria while the reduced rate is 9%. The value-added tax is applied to all economic activities in the country.
Monthly VAT returns are due by the 20th of the following month.
Paid Time Off
According to Algeria’s labor law, employees are entitled to up to 30 days of paid annual leave. In the Southern province of the country, however, employees are entitled to up to 40 days.
Algerian workers are entitled to 15 days of sick leave paid at 50% of their salary for the first day and 100% from the 16th day onwards. This is thanks to the contributions made to the National Fund of Social Security.
In Algeria, women are entitled to a maximum of 14 weeks of paid maternity leave at 100% of their wage.
However, according to Algeria’s law, to be eligible for the remuneration, the concerned party must give birth in the presence of a qualified professional or certified doctor.
Men are entitled to 3 days of paid paternity leave.
In Algeria, employees receive 15 days of severance pay per year of service (after more than 2 years of service).
