Mauritius
« on: January 11, 2016, 09:21:10 pm »
I've been thinking a lot about relocating to Mauritius .

Did anyone do that yet?

I was told that it has so much better tax laws than south africa...is this true?

Does Mauritius have its own stock exchange.

I love it there mainly for the people, weather, scenery and economic stability.

Any view are welcome

I recall the taxes being great for companies (around 3%), I think hyprop is registered there?

Could move there tomorrow - if I had the cash. I like the people - chilled out, smart and ambitious. Think there is a flat 10% income tax? could be wrong. Rockcastle, atlantic leaf and and I think astoria are also listed there.

Pity I need to sit in a chair to earn a living else I would be there. Property seems to be very expensive. I will start digging. I know that one can take dome money from here to take to Mauritius. That option seems to be good for preserving ones hard earned wages.  Thanks for the link. I will look into it.

Tax rate for residents is 15% on foreign or national income and no Capital Gains Tax. Dividends are capped at 10% by the DTA. It is not a tax haven.

I started here with nothing and still have most of it left.

I think foreigners have to buy a $500,000 property in designated developments to get residency.
