Study 1 - The Client:
A North American company were bidding for a construction project in Tripoli, as part of the bid process they had to provide the name of the company that would sponsor their staff on Libyan Work Permits/Visas for the duration of the project. They looked into sponsoring their staff directly and then tried to find local companies they could partner with, both to no avail.
They then came across www.contractortaxation.com and we were able, along with our locally based partner company, to provide Libyan sponsorship and local Libya pay-rolling for all of their staff. They then added these details to their bid. They duly won the bid and we now sponsor 40 of their staff on local Libya Permits.
Study 2 – Contractor:
a London based recruitment agent, Marcus, had been given a job spec for a contractor to work in Libya. The contractor was a English national and would require both Work Permit sponsorship and local pay-rolling for the duration of his contract in Tripoli. Marcus, having dealt with Contractor Taxation for a number of international contract assignments contacted us immediately. We were able to provide him with costs and timeframes for Work Permit sponsorship and he was able to get back to his client immediately with a solution. With our local partner we now sponsor several of Marcus’ Libyan (and Middle East) based contractors on local Work Permits and provide local Libyan payroll.
