Available – We have a range of Panama shelf companies with random company names and incorporation dates from which you may choose. Our Panama shelf companies are incorporated and then left to “age” until we decide to either put the aged offshore company up for sale, or get a particular request for a company formed in a specific year. Panama off the Shelf companies are pre-registered companies kept on a “shelf” until they are sold. Panama Shelf companies are registered with the purpose to be sold. When it comes to new companies, the owner will select the type of company he/she wishes to register, appoint the director as well as provide the necessary information for the company.
Possible –  Panama offshore company requires minimum of 3 directors.

You can retain anonymity by appointing Nominee Shareholders and Nominee Directors. Where nominees are used, the disclosure of the beneficial shareholders or real directors is not a matter of public record, and the names do not need to be disclosed. We offer the service of providing you a Nominee Shareholder and Nominee Director for further confidentiality adding an additional layer of privacy.

Panama incorporated companies offer a high level of anonymity and privacy. Information regarding the Directors, Shareholders and Beneficial Owners of the company are NOT available to the public and are NOT part of any public record in Panama.
No Annual return filing requirements for offshore Panama Companies: Preparation of accounts is not required. There is no requirement to file accounts with the authorities.
Zero tax jurisdiction – Panama is a pure tax haven and has no direct taxation in the form of income tax, capital gains tax, gift tax or inheritance tax
We continuously remind clients about renewals so that they do not have to keep track themselves. Keeping track of renewals can take considerable effort if many IBCs are involved, especially as in Panama annual fees are due one day before the anniversary of the incorporation. We send a renewal pro-forma invoice around 6 weeks in advance of the annual due date. This ensures that no Panama company falls into delinquency or is struck off unintentionally, which could put its assets at risk.

In 1903, Panama broke their alliance with Colombia and became an independent republic.

The population of Panama sits at approximately 2.4 million, of which 700,000 live in Panama City.

Panama is an ideal jurisdiction for those looking for top confidentiality and financial secrecy. Panama can provide legal protection of assets and identity and is a prime location for international investors and businessmen to operate an offshore company as it is one of the most secure offshore financial centers in the world. Panama not only respects privacy and confidentiality, but institutes constitutional law that actively protects it.
Panama is a sovereign nation, that is not governed or controlled by any other country in the world.
For those who are interested, there is also the option of using the Panama Private Interest Foundation, which is essentially an advanced asset protection framework. This design is geared towards those who wish to control and maintain ownership of a foreign corporation but do not wish the information to be accessible by their home countries.

This way they can establish a Private Interest Foundation in Panama that will own the shares of the company, instead of it being under the owner’s personal name. Thus the foundation will claim ownership over the corporation, keeping the actual owner’s information completely anonymous.
