Real estate investment in Mauritius

In order to promote development and thus attract foreign investors, Mauritius has concluded fiscal conventions with more than thirty countries, including France and Belgium.

As a result, any property acquired on Mauritian territory is not included in the calculation of the tax on wealth and the income obtained from the rental or resale of real estate in Mauritius is taxable only in Mauritius and not in the country of origin of the investor.

This small tropical paradise in the heart of the Indian Ocean boasts nearly 5% of economic growth and has enjoyed unparalleled socio-political stability since its independence in 1968, making it one of the 10 most peaceful countries in the world.

Its flexible tax system offers a number of non-pecuniary advantages, including a single tax rate of 15% on personal and corporate income, no capital gains taxes, dividends and no restrictions on repatriation of profits, dividends, and capital.

The double tax treaty exemption signed by Mauritius with more than 35 countries is more than beneficial for investors wishing to invest in real estate with a lower cost for a higher return. The property investment scheme is accessible to expatriates who desire to buy real estate in Mauritius or seniors who would like to afford a golden retirement on this tropical island.
