EXPATRIATE TAX

Tax compliance requirements differ considerably across jurisdictions and require a full spectrum of technical advice to remain proactive. Our tax professionals can assist in relieving expatriate employees from the burden of foreign tax filing and provide practical advice relating to their Mauritian tax filing obligations.

TRANSFER PRICING / INTERNATIONAL COMPLIANCE

Transfer pricing is at the core of OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Plan. Ongoing changes in the transfer pricing landscape and their implications are one of the main tax concerns for international trading groups.  Varying tax regulations across jurisdictions attract tax authority focus on intra-group prices and require global solutions to adhere to transfer pricing regulations. Our team of tax specialists can help develop, manage and implement transfer pricing policies and respond to the challenges posed by tax authorities effectively. Mauritius does not have transfer pricing guidelines, but rather follows OECD rules.

 

COUNTRY BY COUNTRY REPORTING (CbCR)

In view of the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement on the Exchange of Country-by-Country Reports (“CbC MCAA”) that has been signed by Mauritius in January 2017, the income tax (Country-by-Country Reporting) Regulations 2018 (“Regulations”) have been proclaimed on 22 February 2018.

A CbC report should be filed in Mauritius when:

  • The MNE group’s ultimate parent entity (“UPE”) is a tax resident in Mauritius; or
  • The MNE group nominates an entity which is tax resident in Mauritius as the Surrogate Parent Entity (“SPE”).

The SPE is an entity of the MNE group that has been appointed by the MNE group as the sole substitute for UPE to file CbC report.

We can assist you to determine whether your business is of relevance to CbCR.

Private Clients

Personal tax filing can be daunting for individuals, whether they operate in a single location or multi-jurisdictionally. Ongoing tax authority focus on high net worth individuals and interacting cross-border tax regulations require a full spectrum of guidance to minimise the risks of paying tax on the same income twice. Our tax experts can assist by protecting wealth, resolving the adherence complexities of the different jurisdictions and reducing the risk of double taxation. Our services include:

  • Preparing tax returns
  • Managing international taxes
  • Advice on means of wealth preservation, including use of trusts, family office or foundations
