Rwanda is, amongst others, known for its high ranking on the 'Ease of doing business' lists. Fast registration is one of the selling points of Rwanda, as it usually takes companies less than 24 hours to do so. The ease of business registration and a conducive environment for doing business distinguishes Rwanda from most other African countries.
The report ‘’How to Open and Close a Business in Rwanda’’ contains information for (Dutch) investors on how to register and de-register a company in Rwanda. It seeks to improve access to information, procedures, and the policies of the three institutions that are most important when it comes to registering and/or de-registering a company: the Rwanda Development Board (RDB), the Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA), and the Rwanda Social Security Board (RSSB).
TRAIDE Rwanda published a similar report in 2019, which has been updated in July 2022. Please note that certain numbers and information might become outdated at one point. We, therefore, encourage all foreign investors to, in addition to this report, consult with the RDB, business networks or TRAIDE Rwanda about new developments and potential changes.
