Senegal is one of the African states that are good choices to start a business. This country is rich in natural resources. It emphasizes the production, service, construction, agricultural, and chemical sectors. Business incorporation in Dakar or any other city in Senegal can instantly make available these must-have benefits of the jurisdiction.

Company Formation in Senegal: Main PROs

Starting a company in Senegal may be considered a good business idea in view of these core advantages usually attributed to this jurisdiction:

  • stable democratic political system;
  • openness to foreign capital;
  • skilled manpower involving which will be associated with moderate costs;
  • low and flexible taxation;
  • high level of confidentiality without the option of automatic exchange of tax information;
  • absence of currency control limitations;
  • availability of free zones where, among others, a 0% corporate tax rate is applied.

Legal and Organizational Forms

If you wish to set up a company in Senegal or establish your official presence in any alternative way, choose among these available options:

  • Limited liability company – this is a TOP choice for most foreign businessmen in view of the limited liability of each promoter. Any shareholder will never bear any kind of liability in excess of the funds contributed to the company. It is expected that the starting share capital of this company will be at least XOF 10 million. A higher amount of share capital may be expected for enterprises from specific industries. This company may be incorporated even by one shareholder of any nationality.
  • Branch – a choice feasible for those businessmen who wish to arrange the interaction with local customers and contractors in a more effective way. Establishing a branch will not require substantial amounts to be invested but it is not associated with getting a separate legal personality at the same time. Full liability over the results of its operation will always bear its mother company.
It is also possible to use other forms, like a public company, representative office, or partnership. Contact Prifinance attorneys to get more details to the point.

How to Open a Company in Senegal

The general steps needed to form a company in Senegal are next:

  1. Shortlisting the scope of activities that a future entity is going to conduct.
  2. Selecting and verifying a trading name for a future enterprise.
  3. Depositing the amount of the company's share capital.
  4. Collecting and formalizing appropriately all the details about the company's promoters, final beneficiaries, and a mother company (if present).
  5. Composing and executing statutory documents and submission forms.
  6. Contributing incorporation fee and submitting the set of registration documents for consideration. Getting the company’s identification number. Entering the information about the new entity in the Commercial Registry.
  7. Registration for tax and social security purposes.
  8. Opening corporate bank accounts.
  9. Applying for and obtaining a specific license/permit that may be needed for a chosen regulated activity.

Legal and Regulatory Aspects

Incorporating a business in Senegal is usually a straightforward process where clear legal requirements are applied. The local government makes steps to ease the incorporation process, including through one-stop-shop and remote registration. There are no restrictions for non-resident investors.

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.

They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours.

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!
