We are an innovative management company in Mauritius

, Mauritius |

Based in Mauritius, JurisTax is at the centre of trade and capital investment flows between Africa, Europe and Asia and a presence across the region. We have a pool of clients who are active in some of the fastest growing economies, of the world.

Our reach, approach and experience are built around an intimate knowledge and understanding of our clients’ objectives. Together, we foster deep relationships to develop long-term partnerships that are pivotal to the delivery of innovative, dynamic and bespoke solutions spanning across borders, generations and the entire investment spectrum.

Taking a South African view

Our services range from company formation up to relocation in Mauritius and everything that a client might need during the journey. The advantage of working with JurisTax is that we are privileged to have a well known South African tax consultant who works exclusively with us; he previously worked at the SARS. He is one of two original editors of the:

  • SARS Practice Manual in 1996.
  • Editor of the LexisNexus Tax Diary – This publication enters it 15th year and is updated annually.
  • Original editor of the LexisNexus Financial Advisors Handbook. The publication is now in its 14th year.

We provide international tax advice and exchange control advice geared towards South Africans wanting to use Mauritius as a jurisdiction into Africa. We provide guidance in setting up off-shore companies and trusts.

Taking a Universal View

JurisTax, through its group of companies, delivers a range of fiduciary services, corporate finance solutions, wealth & fund management as well as administration, outsourcing services, IT and many other corporate and value-added services to high net worth business owners globally.

We strongly believe, much in the way old merchant banks believed, that in order to optimise and protect the generational wealth of an entrepreneurial dynasty, it is necessary to take a comprehensive and complete view of the wealth creation and preservation drivers available to any individual, family or corporate in order to provide for a long term strategy.

This holistic approach identifies and takes into consideration the entirety of a client’s financial situation, both present state and future projections.
When a client receives inclusive advices, he is far better equipped to make decisions to ensure that his objectives are achievable and realised.

It is for this reason that we, at JurisTax, have developed a team of multi-disciplined specialists who can advise on and deliver a comprehensive range of services and products that provide solutions for many private wealth or business related requirements.

Trust is at the core – Whilst we fundamentally believe the holistic approach described above, is the optimal route to financial security, we also realise that, in these turbulent times, once highly trusted providers have been left wanting and so we would never ask or expect to be granted the immediate stewardship of your personal and business wealth. This is why our services have been designed to be modular.

You can use our services as you need them – severally or jointly – but they are built in such a way so that they can be integrated easily into your overall strategic plan.

The prudent use of fiduciary structures, whether Trusts, Foundations, Companies, Partnerships or Funds, can result in a reduction of tax liabilities, protection of assets, freedom from exchange controls and increased investment opportunities.

Key Questions when considering offshore opportunities

  • How does one create or preserve family and business wealth through international diversification?
  • How do I stay within current exchange control and tax legislation when externalising assets or investing abroad?
  • Which international financial center is best suited for my needs and is regarded as a credible jurisdiction?
  • Which service provider can I partner with, who understands the regulations and provides a comprehensive product offering?

We help address these questions through the 4 main building blocks to consider when diversifying offshore:

1. Credentials of Service Provider

Are they efficient, skilled, secure and client focused with an understanding of Africa, Europe and Asia?

2. Choice of Jurisdiction

Does the jurisdiction offer tax, trading and financial advantages within a flexible cost-efficient framework?

3. Products & Services

Is there a comprehensive set of Products & Services to provide complete solutions?

4. Skills & Expertise of Advisers Do they have unparalleled knowledge of exchange control and tax regulations?

Our diffentiating factor is the methodology we apply when blending the 4 building blocks in order to create and manage the optimal solution.
