Panama

Why choose this jurisdiction when starting a business?
The Republic of Panama is the southernmost country of Central America.

Situated on the isthmus connecting North and South America, it is bordered by Costa Rica to the northwest, Colombia to the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The capital of the Republic of Panama is Panama City.

Panama companies 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 ensures the legal framework to conduct legitimate business activities in the international arena. Many choose Panama to start a business since it is considered one of the most stable governments in Latin America. Its stability is due to the fact that the government has three branches that offer a system of checks and balances similar to the US Federal Government. In addition, the Panama Canal puts Panama in contact with governments and organizations from all over the world.
