Employer Social Charges in Zambia

The Cambridge operations office of Compandben International Ltd has been assisting a USA based telecoms firm in setting up employment in Zambia. In Zambia, the Employer social charges (the equivalent of NI in UK or FICA in USA) are only 5%. But on top of that multinational firms are usually expected to add private health cover which for an employee, spouse and 2 dependents is approx. US$10,000 per year.
