Mauritius is an increasingly attractive prospect for investors, with  financial services and real estate being two of the most popular sectors. There are many factors that attract investors, in particular the favourable tax regime in Mauritius, as well as the following: ease of set-up/operation; no inheritance taxes; 15% Corporate and Personal Income tax rate; 15% VAT; and tax free dividends.

Similarly, investors are attracted to the stock market in Mauritius for the following reasons: the Mauritian economy and the majority of listed stocks have achieved sustainable growth over the last fifteen years; dividends and capital gains are tax free; and there is no exchange control.
