Botswana Social Security Rates in 2023

There are no social security contributions taxes in Botswana for both employees and employers in the 2023 Tax year​​. This means that unlike many other countries, where social security contributions are a significant part of the employment and taxation landscape, Botswana does not have such a system in place. This absence of social security contributions reflects the unique socio-economic and policy environment of Botswana.
