Operating in Mauritius Freeport

Once a company has obtained a Freeport Certificate from the Board of Investment, she can carry trade activities in the Mauritius Freeport by registering the company firstly with the Income Tax Department to obtain a Tax Identification Number (TAN) and secondly with the Customs Department to be able to process customs declarations for the import and export of goods within a Freeport zone.

Registration with Income Tax Department

Freeport companies must be registered with the Income Tax Department as an importer/exporter to be able to conduct business in the Mauritius Freeport. The applicant should submit the following documents:

  • Copy of the certificate of incorporation obtained at the registrar of companies
  • Freeport Licence
  • Letter issued from the company specifying the capacity in which the person making the application is acting
  • The person ID Number
