Mauritius to implement VAT on foreign digital services

30 June 2020

Mauritius is set to extend its VAT regime to apply to the sales of electronic services supplied by non-resident (foreign) companies to consumers in the country.

Currently, foreign businesses providing digital services to consumers in Mauritius do not have to charge VAT on their sales. However, to remove the unfair advantage this gives to non-resident companies over Mauritian resident providers, the Mauritian government are proposing that VAT at 15% will be applied to these types of transactions.

This new tax will apply to a range of electronic services including streaming games, music, apps, films, e-books, e-journals and internet services.
