Around 100 high-profile business leaders operating in diverse industry sectors in Mauritius were in attendance for this event, where Mr. Sudhamo Lal and Mr. Mario Hannelas from the MRA discussed the various amendments recently brought by the Government of Mauritius in the Finance Act 2018. The Special Forum was in a twofold format that lasted 1.5 hours. The first part was dedicated to a panel discussion moderated by PwC, and this allowed the MRA to shed light on various key topics. In the second part of the event, the floor was opened for questions from the audience, whereby specific concerns from the business community were addressed.
At PwC, we aim to engage with both our clients and the authorities to create a platform for the exchange of ideas and perspectives. I believe this event has been successful in promoting dialogue between taxpayers and the MRA on the various tax amendments”.
Anthony Leung Shing, who moderated the debate alongside Dheerend Puholoo, further added that “Mauritius has been under the radar of the OECD in recent years, and the Finance Act 2018 has brought about fundamental changes to our tax system. As we transition from one system of taxation to another, a lot of questions are being asked and there is a mood of uncertainty among operators. We are happy that this special forum has enabled our clients and taxpayers, at large, to raise their concerns, better understand the position of the MRA as well as obtain clarity on the amendments”.
