Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) informs the public that a new facility has been developed jointly by the MRA and the Corporate and Business Registration Department (CBRD) for online VAT Registration of a company on incorporation under a single process.
While making an online application to the CBRD for incorporation of a company, the applicant will, henceforth, be required to provide details relating to VAT registration and will be registered by the MRA for VAT purposes, where applicable. Immediately after its registration as a company by the CBRD, the MRA will inform the company of its VAT registration status and the assigned VAT Registration Number.
Where a company has been VAT-Registered, the effective date of the VAT registration will be: i. the date the company will start business as declared in the application; or ii. the date of incorporation, whichever is the later.
Where a company has not been VAT-Registered on incorporation and thereafter: i. becomes liable for compulsory VAT registration: or ii. wishes to be voluntarily VAT-Registered, the company will have to apply for VAT registration directly to the MRA.
