Banking and financial markets encompass the 'ecosystem' that channels money from those who have it - savers and investors - to those who need it - borrowers. They also facilitate the cross-border flow of funds through exchange of currencies. This is key in Zambia, which depends on imports for a huge percentage of the items traded in the country.
Business banking services include the provision of business loans, credit and order finance, exclusively for companies rather than for individuals. The Zambian Securities and Exchange Commission protects investors, maintains fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitates capital formation.
Several companies provide business software and systems - business management software, electronic payment systems, payroll and HR services, and point of sale systems.
As well as preparing and certifying financial accounts, accountants and auditors in Zambia help to ensure availability of funds within a company, and deal with the planning, organising, and controlling of financial activities.
Different insurance options include business general insurance, business liability insurance, and business life insurance. Because of the complexities of finance in business, companies are advised to seek the services of financial consultants. Not all businesses succeed and they may come a point where they need the services of liquidators and debt collectors.
A pension is a fund into which a sum of money is added during an employee's employment years and from which payments are drawn to support the person's retirement from work in the form of periodic payments. Companies that manage such funds are governed by strict laws to ensure that the money invested is safe. Various options exist in Zambia.
Legal services can be broken down into four key areas - commercial law, dispute resolution, property law and public law. Lawyers in Zambia are issued with practitioners' certificates by the Law Association of Zambia.
