Payroll in Zambia.

Zambia is an African country with a population of over 18 million. The landlocked country has diverse and rugged terrain as well as many wildlife species, parks, and safari areas. The country’s name comes from the Zambezi River, the fourth largest river in the world that flows between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Zambia Subsidiary.

As soon as you decide to work in Zambia, you need to prepare to establish a subsidiary in the country. A legal entity is necessary to set up your payroll, hire employees, and work in Zambia. However, it can take companies weeks or months to establish a subsidiary, and you’ll need full knowledge of Zambia’s subsidiary laws.

Zambia Visas & Permits.

If you’re seeking opportunities for growth for your company, you’re not alone. Companies are increasingly turning to international markets as they expand. Zambia is one of many African countries that offers a lucrative opportunity for global expansion — but as in any other country, it can be challenging to keep track of all of the compliance risks when you’re doing business there. One of these concerns is making sure all of your employees have the necessary Zambian work visas and permits.
