Data are on a fiscal year basis beginning 1st July for years prior to 2010 (for example the data for 2009 represent July 2008 to June 2009) and are on a calendar year basis from 2010-15. Mauritius went back to a July-June fiscal year in 2015. Figures for 2016 correspond to the July-June 2015/16 fiscal year, while figures for 2015 correspond to the January-December calendar year.

Data for 2016 and for years prior to 2010 are on a fiscal year basis beginning 1st July. For example, the data for 2009 represent July 2008 to June 2009 and 2018 represents July 2017 to June 2018. The data for years 2010-15 are on a calendar year (January-December) basis.
Mauritius budget statements cover January-June 2015 and July 2015 to June 2016, but neither the fiscal nor the calendar year for 2015. Figures for 2015 are therefore estimated using quarterly revenue figures at the aggregate level and fiscal year revenue data.

The NPF revenues are reported here as social security contributions, while revenues collected under the Training Levy and the Recycling Fees are reported as extra-budgetary taxes on payroll and workforce. The contributions to the NSF are part of a compulsory savings scheme, and are not classified as revenue in the Revenue Statistics in Africa project.
