Business Facilitation

One of the first hurdle that businesses have to go through is the legal requirements to set up businesses. The Government has recognised the need to improve the processes for setting up businesses in Mauritius. A World Bank Report on Doing Business in 2017 relegated Mauritius by 17 places from 32 to 49 in the worldwide league table of nations. The Business Facilitation Act was amended in 2017, the aim of which remains the setting up of a business within 1 working day.Central Business Registration Database (‘CBRD’) has improved its processes so that registration of businesses and incorporation of companies can be made within 2 hours. Issue of Electronic Certificate of Incorporation is now possible.

Oregon Consulting Ltd acts as a catalyst in the process on setting up its clients’ businesses.
