Tax Residents

Residency in Angola is irrelevant for tax purposes, as the only ccriteria considered is the source of the income.  Only the income earned in Angola is subject to personal income tax.  However, should an employee from a foreing entity renders services in Angola for a period longer than 90 days, permanent establishment will be triggered and the foreign entity will become subject to all Angolan taxation.  

Taxable Income

Income taxes are levied on a sliding scale from 5% to 17%.  The only income subject to taxation in Angola is the income sourced in Angola.  


Foreign earnings are exempted from tax, unless the company has a registered entity in Angola.    Self-employed workers are taxed at 15% flat.  Personal Income Taxes are to be paid at the end of the following month in which the remuneration was paid.  


A taxable income is calculated by deducting the Social Security contributions and the remuneration components exempted from PIT from the gross earnings.

The following payments are excluded from tax:

  1. Social benefits paid by Social Security for mandatory social protection.  

  2. Family allowance paid by the employer up to a limit of 5% fo the employee's monthly salary.
