  • The Levy Training, paid by the employer
  • The National Savings Found (NSF); also at the employer's expense More information and details are available here
  • Tax Obligations: Monthly The Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system is a withholding tax deducted in Mauritius every month by the Employer and paid to the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA).
  • Tax obligations: annually The Employer in Mauritius, must at the end of the year, give each of its employees a "Certificate of Emoluments". This certificate attests to all PAYE tax deductions made at source by the employer. It is mandatory since it then allows the employee to make his income tax return to the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) and to pay (or get the refund in case of overpayment) of his income tax.
    Payroll Mauritius automatically delivers this "Certificate of emolument" to each of your employees in order to save you time!
