The Mauritius Research and Innovation Council (MRIC; http://www.mric.mu) has under S. 4(e) of the MRIC Act 2019, the object to “Promote Commercial Utilisation of the results of Research and Development and Innovation, in the National Interest”.
Further to the announcement of the budget measure regarding the “provision of an Innovation Box Regime for Intellectual Property assets developed in Mauritius to encourage innovation – driven activities by new companies” in the Budget Speech 2017-2018, a number of regulations were put in place to facilitate the process for a company to apply to the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) for the grant of a tax holiday.
