Overview of Panama Corporation


Panama companies, also known as Panama Corporations are created under the General Corporation Law, Law 32 of February 26, 1927. Law 32 has been used as a model for many other jurisdictions and offers a flexible corporate structure, provides investor privacy and ensures the legal framework to conduct legitimate business activities in the international arena.


Legal Business Structure


Your first consideration is to decide what type of business structure to use.


There are 3 normal business entities here in Panama:


1.  Sole Proprietor:Where you and your spouse & family operate a business as sole owners.

2.  Partnership:Where you team up with one or more persons in running the business.

3.  Corporation:Where you register with the government as a company issuing stocks, having a Board of Directors and corporate officers.


While a sole proprietorship can be an oral agreement between close family members, the other two entities need the assistance of a Panamanian lawyer. That's because legal documents need to be prepared forming a Partnership or Corporation. If they are wrongly prepared, they will be legally null and void causing a business legal nightmare for its members.
