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.
