Mauritius Cumulative Tax Method

WHATS New in Paymaster

Mauritius Cumulative Tax Method

The Mauritius PAYE system aims at ensuring that the cumulative amount of tax withheld under PAYE for each month in a year corresponds exactly to the amount of tax payable on total emoluments derived in that year.

The amount of tax to be withheld from the emoluments of each pay period is calculated on a cumulative basis by cumulating both the emoluments and total exemptions and reliefs pertaining to the current and previous pay periods of the income year concerned.

A new tax method has been introduced for the 2022/2023 Mauritian Tax Year. Customers will be migrated from either the ‘average tax method’ or ‘non cumulative tax method’ and put on to the new ‘cumulative tax method’. The Cumulative Tax Method will become the only tax method available in Mauritius from July 2022. Click below for the Mauritius Cumulative Tax Method User Guide.
