Mauritius is not a tax haven country and is a leader in Africa against money laundering, according to a British tax lawyer
Philip Baker, British tax lawyer at Gray's Inn Tax Chambers in London, was in Mauritius, earlier this week, to train employees of the Financial Services Commission (FSC), institution responsible for overseeing the regular banking transactions on the island, as shown in the newspaper Le Matinal.
 
According to the British lawyer who spoke on Monday at the headquarters of the FSC, Mauritius Island is "a very attractive jurisdiction, secure and clean and can attract the right people" in its offshore activities.
 
"Mauritius has the right policies and is not seen as a black hole where money escapes. This country is a leader in Africa to combat money laundering and financial scandals", stated Philip Baker, British tax lawyer, noting in the passing that Mauritius will have no difficulty in exchanging information with other countries to fight against tax evasion on a large scale.
