    I am an owner of an IT start-up in Tanzania. I cannot afford to keep people on the payroll so I want to make use of a freelancing model. In this model, I get people to work on some project from where they are and I pay them on an hourly or project basis. Services like this can easily and cheaply outsourced to developers abroad, but I would prefer to work with local developers. But before I do this I want to know apart from the contract what are my other obligations, for example taxes, pension funds, etc?

    I would really appreciate any advice on this one. Thank you in advance
