Mauritius: Tax relief allows deferral of tax payments

  • Companies having a year-end of November 2020 are not required to submit an advance payment system statement for the third quarter ended in August 2020, but they will have to submit their annual income tax return by 31 May 2021.
  • When the due date falls in December 2020 or in March and June 2021, individual taxpayers are not required to submit current payment system statements. The tax payable is to be remitted at the time of filing of the annual income tax returns in September or October 2021.
  • Any penalty and interest included in the tax arrears, due as of 31 October 2020, under an assessment issued or a return submitted on or before 31 October 2020, will be fully waived, provided that the taxes due are fully paid on or before 31 December 2021 and an application for the waiver is made with the tax authority on or before 30 June 2021.
