Mauritius Company Formation

Mauritius Company Formation

Mauritius is a thriving international business centre situated in the Indian Ocean. The Mauritian authorities have actively encouraged offshore activity and foreign investment and have introduced a variety of incentives to attract worldwide investment.

There are two types of Mauritius Company and each has their benefits. The GBC1 Company is a Mauritius company treated as a tax resident and is liable for the taxes on it's profit. However, they are also entitled to a wide range of double taxation treaties and are particularly favourable with those trading and investing in India.

The GBC2 Company is a private entity that conducts business outside of Mauritius and is a good structure for holding and managing private assets. There is a high level of privacy protection and the GBC2 acts like many of the IBC counterparts. The GBC2 is also permitted to convert to a GBC1.
