IQE in Mauritius

Posted on in IQE Isle of Man

With a client base who continue to actively invest in both the African and Asian markets, our experienced team of professionals in IQE Mauritius are playing their part in supporting the growth that Mauritius is currently experiencing across a number of geographies and sectors.

Enquiries are originating from Europe, Africa and India, with both inward and outward investment transactions emanating from Africa and India in particular.

There are many reasons for utilising Mauritius as a jurisdiction within a professionally advised structure, whether that is for inward or outward investment, infrastructure projects, wealth protection or international group holding purposes, including:

• Membership of international organisations - IOSCO, IAIS, FATF and IFSB
• Foreign Direct Investment Vehicles with the substance of a real physical presence
• Double Taxation Avoidance Treaties (including UK-Mauritius) and 7 agreements awaiting ratification
• 26 Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements
• No Withholding Tax in Mauritius for non-residents
• Capital Gains Tax does not apply in Mauritius
• Preferential market access to Africa, Europe and the USA
• Interest and Dividend income attract a substantial Foreign Tax Credit in Mauritius
• Modern legislation and effective regulation
• Whitelisted jurisdiction
• No exchange control, free repatriation of profits, dividends and capital
• Asset Protection provisions enshrined in local Trust legislation
• Stock Exchange of Mauritius (member of World Federation of Exchanges) enabling regulations for listing of junior mining companies as well as dual listings

The recently elected government is putting a lot of emphasis on financial services by having a dedicated new ministry responsible for financial services and governance. With its flexible, bilingual and professional workforce, Mauritius is maturing as the preferential IFC for structuring investment opportunities in Africa and India.

I work with a number of Corporate Service Providers across several jurisdictions and would have no hesitation in saying that IQE have proved, on numerous occasions to be both the most efficient and professional of them all. IQE has provided a comprehensive service at a consistently high level despite having to deal with some very sensitive cultural complexities reflecting our area of operations. All of the staff have been extremely helpful and will go out of their way to accommodate us. John Bourbon, MSc, FCIB, FCol Charterd FCSI,
