On 5 May 2022, the Government of Tanzania announced interest amnesty to employers who delayed Workers Compensation Fund (WCF) contributions for the period 1 October 2017 to 31 August 2021. Employers have an opportunity to pay outstanding principal sums not later than 30 June 2022. Interest for late payment applied at 10% of the amount due for each month of delay for the period until 31 August 2021 before the rate was revised from 1 September 2021. Considering this, we encourage employers to use this opportunity to limit exposure to non-compliance costs.

WCF is currently charged on monthly wages at 0.6% for private sector employers (0.5% public sector employers) and this is a cost to employer. Please note that WCF does not apply for employers registered in Tanzania Zanzibar.
