The Republic of Angola is an African country that is rich in natural resources – oil, gas, and diamonds in particular. Still, the country is growing rapidly mostly thanks to the successfully implemented reforms and its openness to foreign investments.

The country’s economy is export-based. Among sectors of the economy that are growing fast are agricultural, communications, banking and financial, tourism, and construction sectors. So, if you wish to buy a company in Angola or create a new one to grow your business here, these registration forms are available for this purpose.

Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you wish to establish your business presence in Angola, this can be arranged in one of these business forms:

  • Limited Liability Company – a corporate entity that can be incorporated by two persons at least who hold quotas equivalent to the amounts of the funds invested. One director is required. Foreign investors should contribute at least USD 1,000 to form the chartered capital of this entity. Certain restrictions are applied to the transfer of shares.
  • Public Limited Company – a business entity that may be founded by five persons at least whose liability is limited to the amounts invested only. This entity may freely offer its shares to the general public. It is also required for it to have a minimum chartered capital of USD 20,000 30% of which should be paid at the moment of the company's set up. Three directors are necessary to manage this entity.
  • General Partnership – a form of doing business where the liability of all partners is unlimited. Their personal property may be also called to cover potential losses resulting from the joint doing business.
  • Limited Partnership – a form of doing business that may be incorporated and conducted by (i) general partners whose liability over the results of the partnership's operation is unrestricted in any way, and (ii) limited partners (minimum 5) whose liability is limited to the amounts invested only.
  • Branch – an option suitable for starting business operations by a foreign company. The non-resident company should define the scope of types of economic activities its branch can carry out in Angola. It is also necessary to choose local management and open a bank account for the branch.
  • Representative Office – an option that is suitable for arranging promotional and market research activities in Angola only. This business formation is not allowed to carry out business in Angola.

Registration Requirements and Steps

If you intend to form a company in Angola, the next preliminary registration steps should be passed:

  1. Defining commercial priorities you wish to realize through a local enterprise.
  2. Choosing, checking, and approving the business name for a future company.
  3. Collecting details about the company's founders, beneficiaries, and officials.
  4. Arranging a future registered business office for a company.
  5. Drafting statutory documents and registration forms for a future enterprise.
  6. Submitting the set of required registration documents to the registrar.
  7. Registration for tax and social security purposes.
  8. Obtaining licenses and special permits (necessary for certain types of regulated activities only).

Legal and Regulatory Framework

The legal framework may be considered advantageous for doing business. The local government has applied numerous steps for simplifying investment transactions. For instance, the company registration process has been made more straightforward and the obligation of establishing business partnerships with local residents in certain sectors of the economy has been eliminated. The government also introduces tax incentives to foreign businessmen who invest large amounts (from 1 million US dollars) in certain sectors (agriculture, education, construction, hotel business, etc.). At the same time, it should be noted that the Angolan National Bank strictly supervises all financial transactions carried out in the jurisdiction.

The Commercial Companies Law and the Private Investment Law are principal legal acts regulating doing business in this jurisdiction. Major state authorities foreign shareholders should deal with while starting and doing business in Angola are the Ministry of Commerce, the National Bank of Angola, and the Angolan Capital Market Commission.

Tax System of Angola

If you wish to buy a company in Angola or create a new one, this decision should be made taken into account the following tax highlights:

  • Corporate income tax rate – 25%
  • Personal income tax rate – basic – 25% but this rate may vary under certain conditions
  • Value-added tax rate – 14%
  • Withholding tax rates – (i) dividends – 10% (ii) royalties – 10% (iii) investment income tax (interest on loans granted by (a) third parties or (b) shareholders) – (a) 15% and (b) 10% respectively
  • Capital gains tax rates – (i) corporate – 10% from the operations of disposal financial instruments (ii) personal – 10%

Advantages of the Jurisdiction

After the completion of all steps required for company registration in Angola, the following advantages of the jurisdiction start to be available:

  • lots of opportunities for doing business provided by one of the fastest-growing economies in the world
  • doing business under the conditions of political and economic stability
  • availability of special regimes and tax incentives for investors
  • existence of special economic zones (exemptions on duties for certain operations are available)

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ.

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
