In a press release published on the 23rd February 2021, the Mauritian Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development announced that Mauritius has on the 19th February 2021, signed a Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement (DTAA) with Estonia.
The Agreement is the first of its kind between the two countries. It fully complies with the BEPS minimum standards and was concluded back in March 2019.
The DTAA seeks to eliminate double taxation of income generated through cross-border transactions and provide greater tax certainty to investors. It will make clear the taxing rights of Mauritius and Estonia on all forms of income arising from such activities between our two countries.
The DTAA shall enter into force after the completion by both countries of their internal ratification procedures. Details of the treaty are not yet available. We will publish an update once the treaty details are published.
