Although known to Arab and Malay sailors as early as the 10th century, Mauritius was first explored by the Portuguese in the 16th century and subsequently settled by the Dutch - who named it in honor of Prince Maurits van NASSAU - in the 17th century. The British captured the island in 1810, during the Napoleonic Wars. Independence from the UK was attained in 1968. A stable democracy with regular free elections and a positive human rights record, the country has attracted considerable foreign investment and has earned one of Africa's highest per capita incomes.

Location: Southern Africa, island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar.

Offshore company incorporation. Offshore companies in Mauritius

Mauritius is a premier international business hub in the Indian Ocean region. Over the past years, Mauritius has proved to become a serious and credible jurisdiction for offshore company formation, offering a combination of quality services, reliability and security to investors through its flexible regulatory framework.

The regulation, incorporation, operation and taxation of International Companies (offshore companies) in Mauritius are governed by the provisions of the International Companies Act of 1994. An International Company as well as shareholders or beneficial owners are treated as "protected persons" under the Act and therefore all information or documents concerning them or their activities are confidential.

The International Company provides for confidentiality and is suited for holding and managing private assets. It is however not allowed to raise capital from the public.

Offshore companies in Mauritius are similar to BVI or Belize IBCs (international business companies) with no taxes on any income generated. They are not allowed to work with Mauritian residents - people or businesses, although they can have bank accounts with banks in Mauritius.

Offshore companies in Mauritius have the following advantages:

  • legal tax exemption (GBC 2, which is a local kind of an offshore company, is non-resident for tax purposes);
  • neither accounting nor reporting requirements;
  • business can be conducted internationally;
  • high level of privacy protection (by structuring the shareholding through nominee shareholders and appointing nominee directors);
  • offshore company can be incorporated with one director and one shareholder;
  • offshore company enjoys limited liability without any paid up capital (no minimum capital required);
  • offshore company formation takes 48 hours (corporate documents will be shipped by DHL in seven-ten days).

We can assist with the offshore company formation in Mauritius and offer a number of related services:

  • nominee service (to maintain the owners confidentiality during the incorporation);
  • virtual office with a prestigious business address in Toronto, Canada or Delaware, USA;
  • the offshore bank account either in Mauritius, in Europe or in Caribbean.


The incorporation fees and payments to the Financial Services Commission and The Registrar of Companies depend on the company registration date. The total amount varies from US$ 1190 (for companies registered in April-June) to US$ 1950 (for companies registered in July-September)
Important. All companies regardless of their incorporation date are to be renewed in June of the current year. Renewal payment is US$ 1430. This amount includes Registered Office Address, Registered Agent, Company Secretary, Company administration/compliance checks, preparation of financial summary and fees payable to the Registrar of Companies, Financial Services Commission and License issuing
The company must file financial statements with the Financial Services Commission annually. Our fee for the statements preparation is included in the incorporation package fees
