Trusts

Mauritius trusts are regulated by The Trust Act 2001, the Code Civil Mauricien, and the common law relating to trusts.

A Trust is a vehicle whereby an individual (also referred to as the Settlor) transfers property or assets to another individual or individuals (also called Trustees) to hold for the benefit of other individuals or specific class of people (called Beneficiaries). 

 

 

Trust Formation

 

Trusts are mainly used for asset protection, succession planning, wealth conservation and confidentiality.

 

In Mauritius, there is no requirement to register the Trust with any registrar.  It is a very flexible vehicle and can be formed as a life interest trust, a discretionary trust, a purpose trust, a charitable trust, a protective trust or an asset protection trust.

 

Non-resident trusts are tax-exempt and Trusts may apply for a Global Business Licence to benefit from the advantages of being resident in Mauritius.

Trusts are inherently flexible and can provide the following advantages:

  • Estate Planning

  • Asset Protection

  • Tax Planning

  • Preserving Family Assets

  • Avoiding Probate

  • Avoiding Forced Heirship

  • Protection against creditors

  • Confidentiality

  • Charitable and Philanthropic Purposes
