Corporation in Panama with Full Nominee Service and Apostille

One of our most popular and attractive offshore products is corporation registration in Panama (S.A/INC/Corp) with full nominee service and apostille.

Some of our clients put confidentiality first, and that is where full nominee service comes in useful. This is a modern business instrument used on an absolutely legal basis to ensure the beneficial owner’s privacy. Our experts can offer you high-quality nominee service in Panama by engaging natural persons who do not have hundreds of offshore companies registered on their behalf to serve as directors. However, confidentiality is not the only problem that we solve for our clients.

Corporation in Panama

After the European Union led by David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, began a global deoffshorization process by introducing an automatic exchange of tax information, many entrepreneurs and owners of offshore companies took to worrying about the future of their businesses. And our clients are no exception here.

We are sure that there is no need to panic because you can use a nominee service based on the engagement of natural persons (as nominee directors), which is currently the most appropriate and legal way to protect your offshore business. Contact our experts to find out how they can help you.

Features of Corporation Registration in Panama

Panama is a stable state that attracts customers by offering preferential taxation. Many countries assess Panama as a legitimate jurisdiction and remove it from offshore blacklists. Taxation in Panama is based on a territorial principle: income not derived from Panama is not taxable in the country.

For example, income tax in Panama is paid only by local companies and employees who are employed by Panamanian resident companies that make profits in Panama. And the tax rate on inheritance or wealth is 0%. A good place for company registration, isn’t it?

The registration of a corporation in Panama has several peculiarities:

  • you have to use permissible endings in the corporation names selected for registration: Limited, Corporation, Incorporation, Société Anonyme, Sociedad Anónima and their abbreviations
  • a corporation in Panama cannot engage in banking or trust business, insurance or reinsurance (these activities require a license) or offer its shares for sale to a wide range of persons

  • there are no requirements on the authorized capital amount for registration purposes
  • bearer shares are allowed in Panama
