A foundation, in the broadest sense of the term, is a legal entity that does not have members and that has its own organization and whose purpose is to accomplish specific objectives. It is constituted when the founder wishes to transfer his assets so that it becomes the property of the foundation.

In addition to having a legal personality, a foundation has a flexible management like that of a company. Foundations are governed by the Foundations Act 2012 and the Foundation council is the administrative arm of the Foundation.

A foundation in Mauritius offers the opportunity to legitimately protect assets/wealth against personal liability, high taxes, exchange control or the risk of confiscation.
