Is it LEGAL or ILLEGAL? Can I open offshore company/trust in tax-haven countries like Mauritius to avoid paying full tax in South Africa? I would like to know is it legal or illegal as per SARS code of conduct? waiting for reply.

This is a very complicated area of tax and you should consult a tax attorney about these matters to avoid falling foul of the income tax act.
