Mauritius-Authorised Offshore Company
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. It is a parliamentary democracy in the British style. It established a modern presence as an Offshore Financial Center, with the passing of the Companies Act in 2001. This introduced a new form of Offshore Company aimed at non tax resident companies . This section deals with the Authorised Company. Unlike the GBL Company, a authorised company is a non tax resident in Mauritius. It therefore does not have access to the many Double Taxation Treaties which Mauritius has signed with other countries.
