Contractors Vs. Full-Time Employees
Depending on your requirement, you can either hire a full-time employee or hire someone on contract. Let us understand the difference between the two when you are hiring in Guinea:
Employees that enter into a legal contract of employment with a company and are dedicated exclusively to the company are full-time employees. They do not work on a project basis but exclusively provide their services to the employing company and often their pay is fixed. The burden of compliances for taxation rests on the shoulders of the employer in this case.
Contractors provide their services on a freelance basis and are hired by the company for specific projects or purposes. They are not exclusively providing their services to a single company and may have multiple clients. Their pay is usually influenced by the type of projects they are working on or for what purpose they are hired. In this case, employees should themselves handle their tax compliances and returns and responsibility are not on the employer.
Hiring in Guinea
