Mastering Taxation 2020

5th Edition

With a dynamic local jurisdiction, mastering taxation is crucial

The Minister of Finance has presented the National Budget on Thursday 04 June 2020, in one of the toughest economic times in our history. The stakes are high as the future of our economy remains frail amidst a global recession and a predicted local contraction of around 11%.

Due to the current sanitary measures enforced by the local authorities, Mastering Taxation sessions previously scheduled at the PwC Centre, are postponed. We are bringing a special Mastering Taxation online and adapted to the latest changes brought recently by the Covid-19 Act and Budget 2020-21.

Mastering Taxation Webinar

Several tax incentives have been announced to help companies in this unprecedented pandemic period such as double deductions on capital acquisitions and tax holidays. The National Budget also brings clarity in terms of the partial exemption regime. On the other hand, the government has introduced new taxes in the form of levy on companies or groups of companies having gross income exceeding MUR500m in addition to the COVID-19 levy already introduced in the COVID-19 (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act. Alternative Minimum Tax has also been re-introduced.

Mauritius has been again targeted by the European Union. To protect the global business sector, the government has committed to complete the remaining 5 recommendations under the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Action Plan by September 2020. An Anti Money Laundering legislation will also be introduced to complement the existing legislative framework in Mauritius. 

At the end of this course, attendees will be able to understand the proposed changes brought by the National Budget 2020-21 and the new measures introduced in the COVID-19 (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act. As such, they will be in a better position to take full advantage of the new provisions together with assessing the impact of the taxes introduced.
