Business License in Mauritius

Located off the southeast coast of Africa, neighboring the French island of La Reunion, Mauritius is an island state of about 1.3 million people. As one of the places with a favorable geographical location to invest in Africa or the Middle East, Mauritius is supported by the World Bank in capital markets and has always achieved high growth.

The Financial Services (Consolidated Licensing and Fees) Rules 2008 (the Rules) set out the licensing framework that provides for a comprehensive codified list of financial services and financial business activities licensable by the FSC.

The licensing framework provides clear sets of licensing criteria and requirements within a well defined and consolidated framework. Prospective applicants, including service providers, may consult legal provisions, licensing requirements, and fees applicable to the particular business they intend to conduct. The FSC considered the level of development of the different sectors under its purview as well as the need to sustain the overall competitiveness of Mauritius as an International Financial Centre, in determining the fee structure.
