The Mauritian Government has adopted a legal framework for the acquisition of Integrated Resort Schemes (IRS) in 2002. Such an integrated development scheme allows foreign nationals to buy a residence in full ownership and the foreign buyers, their spouse and dependent children, are eligible for the permanent residence permit. The residence permit indeed entitles the property owner to be tax domiciled in Mauritius, provided that the duration of stay on the Mauritian territory exceeds 183 days per year. The ‘Mauritian tax resident’ status entails a number of benefits, such as the purchase price value of the item is deducted from the Solidarity Tax on Wealth (ISF), the non-imposition of inheritance and capital gains taxes, dividends and other income derived from capital gains are exempt of taxes and à 15 % income tax threshold is applied for both individuals and companies. And finally, the island became a (zero-rated) completely free zone in 2010.
The elegantly planned Heritage Villas Valriche has been developed by the ENL Property Group, one of the leading players in the Mauritian real estate industry, reputed for its know how and accomplishments.
