How to choose the best payroll management service for your African business

Outsourcing your payroll is a smart decision.

It allows you to focus on what you are good at, while leaving payroll management in the hands of experts.

Choosing the right payroll management provider is an important part of the outsourcing process. Ultimately you are trusting whichever service provider to manage your important financial and business data.

Considerations for African companies

One of the most important considerations for African businesses when selecting a payroll management partner, should be whether the provider truly understands payroll management within an African context.

The African commercial sector offers great promise – six of the world’s top 10 fastest growing economies are African nations.

However, it is a complicated region to navigate when it comes to payroll management, and different African countries can have vastly different regulations in place.

This means it is critical that your payroll management partner is well-versed in the specific regulations and requirements of businesses operating in different African countries.

There are also several financial hurdles that need to be overcome within the context of each of these African countries, if your business’s payroll management is to function smoothly.

They include:

  • Obtaining foreign exchange clearance.
  • Facilitating secure payments.
  • Meeting in-country taxation laws.
  • Ensuring release of revenues.

In addition, you will need to ensure that you are meeting in-country employment laws, and that your partners can provide on-site presence and support when needed.
