Tax treaty with South Africa provides new alternatives for structuring investment into Democratic Republic of Congo

January 2013


Recently, the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Africa tax treaty came into force. This development should interest US multinationals with planned and existing investments in the DRC because it will provide alternative investment structuring opportunities. When a US company holds its DRC investment through South Africa, the treaty and South Africa’s attractive holding company regime may reduce the tax cost of doing business in the DRC.
