I would like to know if I can start a business if i am working in the public service in Mauritius? Working hours of business will be after actual job working hours. I will be the only person working in the business and will work like a wholesaler on a smaller scale.

Ok, but I heard some people saying that you must not be direct owner of the business. You must register it through the name of a close family member! Is it true?
