Office to villa

by April 27, 2017 General

After the Indian government moved to a new tax regime with Mauritius in April — till last financial year, all investments made through Mauritius and Singapore were exempt from short-term capital gains tax — many funds have been shipping out of these countries to tax-friendly jurisdictions.

The fund has converted its erstwhile workplace into a premium villa, renting it out to tourists.
