    Background to Mauritius GBC 1 Company Registration

    Mauritius is an English speaking country in the Indian Ocean. It is a former British colony which became independent in 1968 and joined the Commonwealth.

This introduced a new form of Offshore Company aimed at non tax resident companies - Global Business Category 2 (GBC2).

    Mauritius (Global Business Licence GBC 1) Offshore Companies and their Tax Liability

    A GBC1 (old Offshore Company) pays corporate income tax at 15%.GBC1 Companies are also exempt from stamp duty, land transfer tax, and capital gains tax. The expatriate staff of offshore companies pay half the normal rate of personal income tax; two of them per company can import cars and household equipment free of customs duty.There are no withholding taxes or equivalent deductions on dividends or other payments made by GBC1 companies to non-resident shareholders (residents aren't normally allowed to hold the shares of such companies).

    GBC1 Companies are regarded as being resident, and are therefore able to take advantage of Mauritian Double Tax Treaties. The tax treaty with India is particularly favourable, and Mauritius is a favoured location for holding companies for those trading with or investing in India. GBC1 Companies can also utilise the unilateral foreign tax credit which is 80% of the Mauritian tax rate ,leaving a residual liability of 20% of the Mauritian tax rate = 3%.
