Current ongoing foreign investment to Africa from governments and businesses across the world is reconfirming the position of Mauritius as the right platform to invest in the African continent.
One of the countries which have openly iterate its wish to do so is China which has signed its first free trade agreement with an African country being Mauritius. This is believed to set the pace for a shared economic vision for the coming years and bolster the inter-trade between Asia and Africa starting by Mauritius.
As at date, Mauritius has concluded about 23 double taxation agreements with African countries and 23 investment promotion and protection agreements with African countries. This does not only provide assurance to investors that they will be protected against expropriation but also offers security about compensation for losses and free repatriation of capital profits.
Being a founder member of the African Union, SADC and COMESA, Mauritius remains a prime player for attracting funding required for African ventures and hence through Mauritius, Chinese investors may extend their businesses not only to Africa but to other parts of the world such as US and EU with well-designed structures.
Mauritius has signed a China-Mauritius Treaty for the Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with Respect to Taxes on Income with the following highlights.
The taxing rights on capital gains from the disposal of shares are allocated to Mauritius except in the following instances:
a. The Chinese investee company derives its value principally from immovable property situated in China, or
b. The Mauritius company directly or indirectly owns shareholdings of at least 25 in the Chinese investee company during the 12-month period preceding the disposal of the shares.
