Security in Sub-Saharan Africa, Adjusting to the new operating environment

Date: Thursday, July 16, 2020
Time:
8:00 am – 9:00 am Eastern

 

Register

 

Description:

Fears of economic catastrophe have world leaders choosing to end their lockdowns and reopen their economies. Yet the corresponding spikes in infection rates are causing “snap-backs” across the Northern Hemisphere. Many communities in Sub-Saharan Africa will not have that option – and many analysts believe that the worst is yet to come as the regional pandemic is expected to reach its peak this winter.  

How can companies enter this ‘new reality’ maximizing their value, within constrained financial provisions, whilst ensuring the safety of their people and property?

GardaWorld’s experienced Sub-Saharan Team, in conjunction with ISOA, will be tackling these important issues and more on Thursday 16th July at 3pm (East Africa). Join our discussion – sharing ideas and experience as we navigate this uncertain path to future growth and sustainability.

Small Business Topic Forum Webinar - Afghanistan Tax, Audit and Accounting Practices

Date: Friday, July 24, 2020
Time:
8:00 am – 9:00 am Eastern


Register

 

Description:

International organizations operating in Afghanistan are facing many challenges. Among those challenges are maintaining business license, obtaining tax exemptions and tax clearance, and securing employee visas. On the other hand, government contractors are expected to strictly comply with Afghan tax laws and be ready for tax audits. In addition, audits by US government are increasingly focusing on contractors’ costs and compliance with federal regulations. These challenges require contractors to have well trained staff, clear operating procedures, and strong systems in place in their Afghanistan office. In this Webinar, we will be discussing some of the challenges, recent updates, and potential solutions.
 
Some Potential Questions:

  1. Which government contractors are eligible for Afghanistan tax exemption?
  2. Is Afghanistan tax exemption for USG contractors automatic or must be confirmed?
  3. Which government contractors are subject to incurred costs audits specific to Afghanistan?
  4. How is the government cost audit for Afghanistan contracts different for prime and subcontractors?
  5. Are US contractors operating in Afghanistan required to have a local bank account?
