Training Refunds

In order to encourage employers to provide training to a maximum number of employees, the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) offers grants as incentive.

Eligibility for Grants

1. Only employers contributing monthly to the levy will be eligible.
2. Only training courses and programmes which have received the prior approval of the MQA/TEC will qualify. The training has to be job-related and must lead to acquisition of new skills.
3. As the objective of the Council is to upgrade the local workforce, grants are restricted to trainees who are Mauritians or Permanent Residents of Mauritius.
Employers can recover up to 75% of training costs depending on their tax rate.

% Employer's tax rate % HRDC Grant Refunds*
15% 60%
0% 75%

* applicable to in-house and institutional-based training courses only

The maximum grant refund per year depends on your annual levy paid and grand refund computation.
The training may either be run in-house or externally by training institutions registered with the Mauritius Qualifications Authority (MQA). Nuclei is an MQA Approved Training Centre since 1989.

Refunds conditions are different for Institutional Training and In-House Training.

We advise you to consult the Levy Grant Incentives Scheme document on the HRDC website for more information.
