Tanzania - WCF Contribution Rate Decrease

Following the proposals made in the Budget speech, the Workers Compensation (Payment of Tariff)(Amendment) Regulations, 2022 has amended the contribution rate for employers, effective as from 1 July 2022.

The Principal Regulations are amended in regulation 5(2) by deleting the words “zero point six per centum (0.6%)” and substituting for them the words “zero point five per centum 0.5%)”.

Previously, employers in the private sector contributed 0.6% while employers in the public sector contributed 0.5%.
