Global PEO and Payroll in Kenya
Getting your business up-and-running in Kenya can be challenging, especially if you do not speak the native language. Establishing your own business entity in Kenya is an option to be considered as you expand abroad. But before you invest valuable resources in setting up business in Kenya, you should be fully aware of the risks involved.
Acumen’s Global PEO and Payroll solution was designed especially for companies like yours, to smooth the way for quick, easy and risk-free business operations in Kenya, without having to establish a legal business entity.

International Global Payroll and Taxation in Kenya
The only social security tax levied in Kenya is the National Social Security Fund (NSSF). The NSSF is a statutory savings scheme to provide for retirement.
13th salary in Kenya
13th month salary is not mandatory in Kenya. However, the Employment and Labour Relations Court recognises that, where an employer has consistently and persistently paid a 13th month cheque/bonus and such practice or custom is reasonable, certain and notorious, it becomes an implied term of the employment contract that can be legally enforced, provided that sufficient and clear evidence is placed before the Court.
