Legal Solutions: helping United Kingdom residents establish offshore companies in Panama

For individuals residing in the United Kingdom, Panama presents itself as a compelling option for creating offshore companies, thanks to its advantageous legal structure, tax regulations, and geographically advantageous positioning. These attributes facilitate the formation of companies in Panama that can effectively conduct business across various nations.

Characteristics and benefits of an offshore company

A offshore company is an entity incorporated in a specific country but operating in a different one. This arrangement offers a plethora of attractive benefits such as safeguarding assets, maintaining confidentiality, and significant tax reductions for its proprietors.

For international investors seeking to broaden their commercial horizons, creating a offshore company in Panama can serve as a crucial strategic asset. Positioned in regions with beneficial legal and fiscal structures, they provide a plethora of benefits capable of propelling the expansion and financial gains of their ventures. The professionals at Legal Solutions stand ready to assist you in establishing your overseas corporation.

Benefits of setting up a offshore company in Panama

An aspect that makes Panama a compelling choice for forming a offshore company  is its robust and mature legal system, set forth by the Corporations Law of 1927. This legislation offers versatility for creating and conducting business activities for such entities across various domains.

Under Panama’s tax regulations, offshore companies are solely taxed on earnings generated domestically, leading to substantial tax advantages for enterprises conducting business overseas. Furthermore, its advantageous geographical positioning enables seamless entry into the markets of Latin America and the Caribbean, offering a lucrative prospect for companies aiming for growth and expansion.

Moreover, Panama ensures strict confidentiality by safeguarding the anonymity of shareholders and executives, without mandating the revelation of financial details. Lastly, the expenses associated with founding and managing offshore companies in Panama are competitive in contrast to other comparable locations.

Requirements for establishing a offshore company in Panama

To establish your offshore company in Panama, you only need to meet the following requirements:

• Identity Verification: copies of the valid passports of all shareholders and directors of the corporation (at least 1 shareholder and 3 directors) are essential. Moreover, the residential addresses of all shareholders and directors must be provided.

• Forms: the completion of the Know Your Customer (KYC) Form is mandatory, designed to authenticate the identities and funding sources of the involved parties. Additionally, the Company Formation Form must be filled out, detailing fundamental information about the corporation such as its name, objectives, share structure, and the Due Diligence Form, which explores information regarding the shareholders, directors, and operations of the entity.

• Supplementary documentation: if the shareholder is a Panamanian company or legal entity, a valid Public Registry Certificate (issued within the last three months) is necessary. In cases where the corporation was established outside Panama, a valid Public or Commercial Registry Certificate from its respective country (issued within the last three months) with proper apostille is mandatory.

Remember, these are the basic requirements for establishing an offshore company in Panama. It is advisable to consult with specialists in the field, such as the team at Legal Solutions, to receive personalized guidance and ensure that all legal requirements are met.
