The rapid pace of change in Algeria creates significant opportunities, challenges and complex decisions for economic operators and investors. To benefit from these opportunities it is necessary to follow the fast changes of the Algerian business law and the Algerian tax law. Algerian law plays an essential role in economic relations with Algeria. The application of the Algerian law is almost systematically stipulated in international contracts to which Algerian entities are party. Contrary to an idea accredited in certain circles Algerian law is not a more or less successful adaptation of other legal systems.
Indeed, Algerian law is characterized by its multiple sources. Whilst Algerian law enshrines a certain number of principles common to most Roman-Germanic legal systems, essential concepts of Algerian law are highly specific; some are inspired by the Islamic law of contracts; others are the recent product of an economic and social organization that is constantly undergoing change, principally because of Algeria’s switch to a market economy.
