Introduction to Mauritius companies

Mauritius offers two main structuring alternatives known as Global Business Companies GBC I (resident) and GBC II (exempt) companies.

Mauritius GBC II

GB2 companies are mainly used for international business transactions, consultancy services or for private investment holdings where treaty benefits are not required. Such a structure provides for greater flexibility and is a suitable vehicle for holding and managing private assets.


GBC2 companies are tax exempt and thus have no access to Mauritius double tax treaties.
