Doing business in Africa

Africa is a huge continent with dizzying potential. If you’re thinking of doing business in Africa, it's no longer all about the biggest countries by GDP (Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa and Algeria), because you can no longer ignore fast growing and diverse economies like Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Ghana. As these countries grow, so does the demand for international goods, presenting an incredible opportunity for UK retailers to establish their brands.

What's more many African countries have relatively low rates of Duty and VAT. For example, Nigerian VAT is 7.5%, far lower than the UK. So, if you’re a business thinking of exporting to Africa, there's never been a better time to consider it.

Opening a ParcelHero business account


Every African country has their own list of prohibited items. If you’re sending anything obscure or high value we recommend you check on the local customs website before shipping.

The rate of duty varies depending on the countries you’re sending to. Check on the customs website for the country you’re sending to.

Yes, you can send personal effects to Africa. However some African countries prohibit the importation of certain products, for example historical artifacts or restricted commodities like Ivory. Check on the customs website for the destination you’re sending to for further guidance.
