Economy

"Niger is a landlocked country in West Africa with a population of over 21 million people. The economy of Niger is largely based on subsistence agriculture, which accounts for about 50% of the GDP and employs 80% of the labor force. The country also has significant deposits of uranium, which accounts for about 10% of the GDP. Other important sectors of the economy include livestock, fishing, and mining.

The World Bank estimates that Niger’s GDP in 2019 was $11.3 billion, with a growth rate of 4.2%. The inflation rate was estimated to be 3.2%, while the unemployment rate was estimated to be 8.2%. The country’s public debt was estimated to be around $3.2 billion, or 28.7% of the GDP.

Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a Human Development Index (HDI) of 0.372, which is among the lowest in the world. The country has a low level of economic diversification, with the majority of the population relying on subsistence agriculture. The country also has a low level of access to financial services, with only about 10% of the population having access to formal banking services.

Despite these challenges, Niger has made some progress in recent years. The government has implemented a number of reforms to improve the business environment, including the introduction of a new investment code and the establishment of a one-stop shop for investors. The government has also implemented a number of initiatives to improve access to financial services, including the establishment of a national financial inclusion strategy.

Overall, Niger’s economy is largely based on subsistence agriculture and the exploitation of natural resources. The country has made some progress in recent years, but there is still a long way to go in terms of economic diversification and access to financial services."

Taxation

In Niger, both corporate and personal income are subject to taxation. The tax system is administered by the General Tax Directorate (Direction Générale des Impôts, DGI), which is part of the Ministry of Finance.


For corporations, the standard corporate income tax rate is 30%. However, there are reduced rates for companies operating in certain sectors or located in certain regions. For example, mining companies are subject to a reduced rate of 25%.


For individuals, the personal income tax is based on a progressive tax system with four tax brackets ranging from 0% to 35%. The tax rates and brackets are periodically adjusted by the government. In addition, there are various deductions and allowances that may reduce the taxable income, such as social security contributions, medical expenses, and education expenses.


The tax year in Niger runs from January 1 to December 31. The deadline for filing tax returns and paying any taxes owed is March 31 of the following year. Employers are required to withhold and remit income tax on behalf of their employees on a monthly basis.


Taxpayers can make tax payments at local tax offices or through electronic channels. Late payment of taxes may result in penalties and interest charges.
