Mauritius: Offshore Trusts Guide

Legal Framework and Formation Rules and Fees

Mauritius Offshore Trusts are set up under the Trusts Act 2001 (they used to fall under the Offshore Trusts Act 1992); the regime for trusts is based on English common law. Offshore trusts are subject to the following conditions:

  • The settlor must not at any time be a resident of Mauritius, although an offshore company can be a settlor;
  • At least one trustee must be resident in Mauritius; offshore companies (which are deemed to be resident) can be trustees if authorised;
  • Trust property must not include real property situated in Mauritius.
