Payroll in Lesotho

The assessment year in Lesotho consists of a 12-month period starting 1 April to 31 March.  There are no social security systems in Lesotho for employed persons.  Lesotho does make use of the Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) system and the employer is required to remit the income taxes to the Lesotho Revenue Authority.  Residents are taxed on their worldwide income.  Non-residents are only subject to taxes on their Lesotho-sourced income.  

TAX RATES  |  2018 / 2019

 

Taxable income of residents are calculated as follow:

First M 61,080.00                 20%

over M 61,080.00                 30% 

SOCIAL SECURITHY  |  2018 / 2019

Lesotho does not have a social security system for employed persons.  Company benefits will be based on each company's policy. 

STATUTORY FILING  |  2018 / 2019

Taxpayers are required to submit an annual tax return by the last day of the third month after the assessment year end.  

An additional tax rate of 22% per year becomes payable when failing to file a return, failing to pay due taxes, failing to withhold taxes or pay the taxes withheld.  

Tax Residents

An individual will qualify as a tax resident if he/she

  • is a Ghana citizen that does not have a permanent home outside Ghana in a calendar year;

  • is present in the country for 183 days in any 12-month period; or

  • is a citizen with a permanent home in Ghana, but temporarily outside of the country for a period not longer than 365 continuous days.  Resident individuals are taxed on a sliding scale from 0% and 25%, while non-residents are subject to a flat rate tax of 20%.

Taxable Income

 

Benefits subject to fringe benefits tax are excluded from employment income.  Pension income is taxed in accordance to any other income.  Both residents and non-residents would be liable for capital gains tax should they dispose of business or investment assets. This also applies to a resident's assets located anywhere in the world.   

Exempt Income

The following income would be exempted from taxes: 

  1. Income derived from subsistence farming;

  2. The first LSL 500 of interest derived from a single savings account;

  3. Dividends received from a resident company.
