Your loved ones mean the most in life and you would do anything for them. This is an equally important statement to us, and we believe that it is important to make sure that your contractors are covered and that they have every opportunity to get back to their loved ones if they are involved in a serious accident or sadly death.
ADS works with International & Local insurance companies offering tailored insurance solutions for your staff in Africa. We will provide local or international medical insurance cover for your staff in the region.
It is always important to make sure that if you are working in Africa that your current provider covers you in any African country.
ADS also offers additional Pension Saving Plans that are held via our Third Party Partner and licensed by the FSC of Mauritius. These saving plans are held in USD and the individual will have full control of their account once it has been setup.
Whether you are looking for additional work permits on your project site or do not have a registered entity in-country, ADS can assist you in the process.
Immigration can be a nightmare to deal with and can also become extremely complicated. With our team on the ground, we will deal with the local authorities in-country and ensure that all paperwork has been submitted correctly. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee work permit applications as the local authorities have the final say but therefore it is important to have a company that knows what they are doing to ensure all documentation has been submitted correctly.
ADS will hold the work permit via our in-country entity for the expatriate who is then under local employ. It is therefore our responsibility to ensure that the administration, payroll, taxes, benefits, employee records and monthly payroll are compliant in-country.
Speak to one of our Payroll Consultants should you need a solution in Africa, especially if you do not have a registered entity in the Country of operation OR looking for additional work permit quotas.
Many companies take on the services of Independent Contractors / Consultants who will be responsible for their own taxes in their home country.
Companies usually need to separate at arm’s length the responsibility of employment for services rendered on short & long term projects where they use consultants. It is of course the company’s responsibility to ensure the payment of taxes in the country of operation should they meet the required days to be considered a tax resident. In some cases where contractors do not meet the required days in the country of operation to be considered a tax resident, we would also facilitate this payment. All Independent Contractors must issue a timesheet along with their invoice for services.
ADS will setup an independent contract directly and pay the Independent Contractor to the bank of choice in any country or currency.
Speak to one of our Payroll Consultants if you are looking to separate yourself from liability from an Independent Contractor and they assume all responsibility for their own Taxes in their home Country.
