Mauritius is a jurisdiction that has shown significant economic growth from a low-income to a middle-income economy. Now, it has well-developed tourist, industrial, and financial sectors. So, many foreign entrepreneurs may find this jurisdiction suitable for establishing a business presence.

Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you are considering an opportunity of establishing your business presence in Mauritius, we suggest you consider one of the next most popular forms:

  • Company Limited by Shares – an enterprise where the financial liability of members is restricted to the amount unpaid for their shares. It can be either (i) private where certain restrictions on the allotment and transfer of shares are applied and where there cannot be more than 50 shareholders, and (ii) public where an enterprise may freely offer its shares to the public for involving extra funds. The minimum paid-up capital of $1 is basically enough to form a company limited by shares.Global Business Company (Offshore) – an entity that is registered in, governed from but conducts business outside the territory of Mauritius. For this purpose, the entity has to obtain the license from the Financial Services Commission for conducting business outside this jurisdiction. The enterprise is generally used for international trading and making investments outside the state. It falls under the provisions of the network of double-tax treaties and enjoys the benefits of the local tax system. Minimum one shareholder and two directors (residing in Mauritius) are required in this case. The enterprise should also have a bank account in Mauritius as a must-have feature attributed to its substance. This business option ensures a sufficient level of privacy for beneficial owners.
  • Authorized Company (Offshore) - an entity where the majority of shares are owned by a non-resident of Mauritius and managed outside its territory. The entity can be formed by at least one shareholder and has to pass the authorization procedure in the Financial Services Commission. It also should have a registered agent in the territory of Mauritius and at least one director. The entity should have at least one paid-up share.
  • Branch – an overseas company may establish in Mauritius its branch for conducting the same types of business activities as aboard. Registration is necessary in this case.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
