Fun fact

In Algeria, the employer is liable for IRG tax to be withheld at the source from the employee's salary and to be paid monthly at the latest on the 20th of the following month.                                                                                        

The social security treaties signed with Algeria have to be taken into consideration to determine the place of affiliation.

In accordance with the provisions in force, and in order to exercise a salaried activity in Algeria, a foreign employee has to obtain a work permit or temporary work authorization (Authorisation temporaire de travail: ATT).
