Incorporation of companies
Previously two categories of Global Business Companies (GBC), namely GBC1 and GBC2 existed, but Since 1st January 2019, the GBC1 has become the Global Business Company (GBC) with the introduction of a new type of entity, the Authorised Company to replace GBC2.
Global Business Company (GBC)

A Global Business Licence is considered to be a tax resident in Mauritius and enjoys benefits under the extensive Double Taxation Avoidance (DTA) networks of Mauritius. The majority of its shares, voting rights, the legal and beneficial interest can be held or controlled by both citizens and non-citizens of Mauritius.
The majority of shares/voting rights/the legal or beneficial interest in the company, are held or controlled, as the case may be, by (a) person(s) who is/are not a citizen(s) of Mauritius. It principally conducts its business and has its place of effective management outside of Mauritius. It shall, at all times, have a registered agent in Mauritius which shall be a management company. It is treated as non-resident for tax purposes in Mauritius and is required to file an annual tax return with the Mauritius Revenue Authority.
Protected Cell Company (PCC)
Some individuals may be looking for a form of added security, without compromising the flexibility of international investment structuring. Such individuals may look towards establishing a Protected Cell Company (or PCC). This Special Purpose Vehicle (or SPV) was introduced in the year 2000, under the Protected Cell Companies Act 1999 of Mauritius. It allows for the lawful separation of assets owned by each cell of the company. This separation in turn, limits liabilities to each cell, for example, in case of bankruptcy of a specific cell, creditors shall utilise the assets of that specific cell, and not of the others within the structure in order to honour its liabilities.
A PCC can be incorporated in Mauritius as a Global Business Company (GBC), and benefit from Double Taxation Avoidance Agreements in force. As stated above, existing foreign and existing Mauritian companies may also apply and convert into PCCs. The creation of a new Cell for a PCC is subject to the approval of the Financial Services Commission (FSC) of Mauritius.
