What Are Some of The Tax Benefits Of Living In Mauritius?
Mauritius is a well-regulated and transparent jurisdiction that fully complies with the OECD’s International Standards of Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. It has established itself as an international financial centre with attractive fiscal policies, including an extensive Tax Treaty network with multiple countries.
  • Corporate Tax, Personal Income Tax and VAT set at 15%
  • No tax on Donations to descendants and spouses
  • No Foreign Exchange Controls, no Withholding Tax, no Tax on Capital Gains
  • Double Taxation Avoidance – Agreements with 46 countries
Is There A Minimum Period One Is Legally Obliged to Stay In Mauritius Under A Residence Permit?
The law does not provide for a minimum number of days per year to stay in Mauritius on a Residence Permit. However, it is recommended to stay in Mauritius for a minimum of 183 days per calendar year to be considered a resident for tax purposes. Resident individuals are subject to Mauritian income tax laws on their worldwide income. An individual is a Resident in Mauritius if he or she fulfills one of two conditions:
  • he or she spends at least 183 days of the tax year in the country, or
  • he or she has a combined presence of at least 270 days in that tax year and the two preceding tax years (conditions apply)
What Is the Difference Between A Permanent Residence Permit (PRP) and Citizenship?
A PRP is a permit that allows an eligible non-citizen to live in Mauritius for a period of 20 years, following which the permit must be renewed. Obtaining citizenship, on the other hand, means that the investor becomes a citizen of the country and is entitled to carry a Mauritian passport. Note that a Residence Permit does not automatically lead to Mauritian citizenship, which means that even if the holder has the right to live in Mauritius, he or she is not allowed to own other real estate properties across the country outside the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS), Real Estate Scheme (RES) and Property Development Scheme (PDS) frameworks, or an apartment in a “ground + two” building, or industrial/commercial property. All purchases must be authorised by the Economic Development Board (EDB).
