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 2010-2015.
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. The calendar year 2015 is not used in national budget reporting by Mauritius, which means that official figures are not available for all revenue categories for this periodWhere data was missing for 2015, quarterly revenue figures at the aggregate level were used along with fiscal year revenue data to produce estimates.
The data are on a cash basis, except for revenue from grants, which is reported on an accrual basis.
Due to an administrative change, some categories of local revenues were reclassified. Local taxes that were previously classified as local taxes on goods, as well as taxes on the use of goods and permission to use goods, and some revenues classified as miscellaneous revenues were recorded as sales of goods and services from 2013 onwards.

Revenue Statistics in Africa, a collaboration of the AU, ATAF and the OECD, presents a unique set of detailed and internationally comparable tax and non-tax revenue data in a common format. The classifications and definitions used for this data are consistent with those used in Revenue Statistics, in Revenue Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean, and Revenue Statistics in Asian Countries. It also provides a conceptual framework defining which government receipts should be regarded as taxes and classifies different types of revenues. Comparable tables show revenue data by type in US dollars, as a percentage of GDP, and, for the different types of revenues, as a share of total taxation and total non-tax revenues. Detailed country tables show information in national currency values. Unless otherwise noted, all revenue data are on a cash basis.
