A favourable tax system

With the adoption of an act pertaining to the Integrated Resorts Schemes (IRS), Mauritius has become an attractive destination for foreigners seeking to live in a country that promises profitable investment and a high standard of living.

Heritage Villas Valriche fits the bill by allowing owners to benefit from an advantageous taxation environment, permanent residence and freehold benefits. The residence permit entitles the property owner to be tax domiciled in Mauritius, provided that the duration of stay on Mauritian territory exceeds 183 days per year.

As the country has signed a non-double taxation treaty with 43 countries, the Mauritian tax resident status encompasses a number of benefits, such as:

  • No inheritance or capital gains taxes.

  • Dividends and other income derived from capital gains are exempt from taxes.

  • A 15 % income tax threshold is applied for both individuals and companies.
