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

Given its advantageous legal environment, tax structure, and strategic positioning, Panama is increasingly becoming a popular choice for individuals from the United Kingdom seeking to form offshore companies.

Characteristics and benefits of an offshore company

An offshore company is a corporate entity registered in one nation but conducting its activities in another. This setup provides numerous appealing advantages, including asset protection, privacy, and substantial tax savings for its owners.

Foreign entrepreneurs seeking global business expansion opportunities may find great value in creating a offshore company in Panama as a crucial strategic asset. Situated in regions with beneficial legal and fiscal structures, these entities provide a variety of benefits that can enhance the expansion and profitability of their ventures. The professionals at Legal Solutions are well-equipped to assist you in establishing your overseas corporation.

Benefits of forming an offshore company in Panama

One reason why Panama is such an attractive destination for establishing an offshore company is its solid and developed legal framework, established by the Corporations Law of 1927, which provides flexibility for the establishment and operation of these entities at multiple levels.

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.

Panama further ensures a superior level of privacy by safeguarding the anonymity of shareholders andexecutives, without mandating the revelation of financial details. Furthermore, the expenses associated with setting up and upholding offshore entities in Panama are competitive in contrast to comparable jurisdictions.

Requirements for establishing a offshore company in Panama

To set up your offshore company in Panama, you simply have to fulfill the following criteria:

• 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.
