The creation of an LLC has significant tax advantages because of its flexibility for members, including non-resident members.
This business structure offers a great flexibility in terms of management, which allows to reduce taxes and to benefit from an efficient financial management. It is an excellent option to develop a business activity (dropshipping, consulting, e-merchant, etc.) at lower costs.
The creation of an LLC is not limited to US tax residents. Bilateral tax treaties signed by the United States with more than sixty countries allow people residing abroad to benefit from this type of business structure. Thus, the creation of an LLC in the United States is not limited to US tax residents.
Mauritian tax residents can benefit from a number of advantages through the LLC. Nevertheless, certain requirements must be respected, in addition to knowing the various reporting obligations.
We recommend you to be accompanied during the process in order to ensure the conformity of the declarations made and to avoid possible errors. The PrepaTax team is at your disposal to guide you throughout your project.
What is the tax treatment of an US LLC?
The creation of an LLC in the United States offers many legal and tax advantages to the members, whether they are U.S. or foreign residents.
This business structure can be single or multi-member. It allows for a variety of business activities, such as real estate, trading, import/export, investment (crypto, stocks, etc.), and many others.
However, the LLC is considered a semi-transparent company for tax purposes. This means that the members are personally liable for taxation in their country of residence. By choosing their tax residence wisely, U.S. LLC holders can significantly reduce their taxes.
It is important to note that LLC tax reporting can be complex, especially for non-U.S. resident members. Therefore, it is highly recommended to use tax experts to avoid mistakes that can lead to costly fines.

What is the tax treatment of Mauritian tax residents associated with an US LLC?
If a member of the U.S. LLC resides in Mauritius and owns an interest, he or she will be subject to taxation on his or her share of the profits based on the income tax rates in effect in that country. In such a situation, the member will be considered to have received taxable income in Mauritius for his or her share of the profits of the company.
Residents of Mauritius are taxed on Mauritian source income and on foreign income transferred to Mauritius.
The types of income that are subject to tax include salaries, pensions, profits from business or professional activities, rental income and interest. The tax rate is progressive up to a maximum of 15%.
However, a solidarity levy of 25% is imposed on annual taxable income exceeding 3 million Mauritian rupees.
