Mauritius Financial Services Sector

Mauritius Financial Services

Mauritius is constantly innovating to maintain its competitive edge in this era of global competition. For the last decade, Mauritius has come up with new legislation and regulations to expand the scope and depth of services that may be offered. With the creation and implementation of the innovative legislative framework, Mauritius offers investors a diverse product base for planning and optimizing benefits. Global business companies (GBCs) benefit from low to nil tax rates and can be organized as collective investment vehicles, protected cell companies (PCC), private trust companies (PTCs), trusts, and partnerships amongst others. GBCs can also benefit from the Double Tax Avoidance Treaties with various countries.

Two main bodies, each with specific legislative objectives, regulate the financial services sector and have adopted international best practices to prevent abuse of jurisdiction
