Mauritius-Kenya: Expansion of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement (DTAA)
A Protocol amending the New Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement (DTAA) between Mauritius and Kenya on 10 April 2019, was signed on 16 October 2019 in Washington.
The DTAA will eliminate double taxation and provide greater tax certainty for Mauritian and Kenyan investors. It will make clear the taxing rights of Mauritius and Kenya on all forms of income arising from cross-border economic activities between the two countries. Both Mauritian businessmen and investors looking for opportunities in Kenya will benefit from this DTAA as well as the Kenyan businessmen and investors looking for opportunities in Mauritius.
We are now awaiting the ratification of the Mauritius-Kenya DTAA, to enable the enforcement of the agreement.
