Business Incorporation in Panama
Before incorporating an offshore company in Panama, you need to determine the type of business structure that will best suit your needs. The name of an offshore company in Panama can be in any language and should be recognized as an S.A., Inc., Corp., Sociedad Anonima, Corporation, or Incorporated entity.
For all corporate structures, the government of Panama requires at least one owner/shareholder or legal entity of any nationality residing or based in any country. The tax exemptions are applicable to all businesses that do business out of Panama. The Panamanian Commercial Code allows foreign ownership for the following business structures:
- Sole Proprietorship – foreign investors can open offshore sole proprietorship’s but will be subject to taxes if conducting business within Panama.
- Limited Sole Proprietorship – limits the business owner’s liability.
- Joint Venture (Cooperatives)
- Limited Liability Partnership – issuance of stocks is allowed.
- Limited Liability Company
- General Partnership
