We are an authorised financial services provider in South Africa. We are desirous of establishing a savings scheme housed in a trust structure in Mauritius, with the administration of the scheme also being conducted in Mauritius. The intention for establishing the scheme is to allow for multi-national companies, and it`s employees, to contribute to the scheme for the benefit of the employees who are based in various countries throughout the world.

We would be grateful if you would advise on the following:

1. Is it possible for us to establish such a scheme in Mauritius?;
2. Should 1 above be answered in the affirmative, what are the formalities that would be required to set up such a scheme (legislative and licensing requirements)?
3. Would such a scheme require a Global Business License?

Inheritence Tax

Some countries,like Britain,imposes a punitive Inheritence Tax on beneficiaries in most cases the "Settlor's" children. But what happens if the Settlor sells his assets, say property, to his children on his deathbed or leaves the paperwork with his lawyer, to be dated (in his will) on the day of his death. In such cases the buyer should only have to pay a property transfer tax, which is justifiable, owing to the work involved to keep up the property register. The few percentage tax would be more acceptable and bring in more revenue for the government than the huge inheritence tax, which everyone with serious money will avoid. Inheritence tax drives many people into the hands of crooks. If the beneficiaries default on payment to the seller's estate, it is none of the government's business, hence a debt cannot be taxed. Inheritance Tax is immoral and people should force governments to abolish it.
