Main Characteristics and the basic rules of Company registration in Panama.

Business expansion is what most entrepreneurs have in mind and you may have similar plans for your startup or venture. However, you should be careful in selecting a business expansion hub or destination. If exploring the potential in Latin American market is in the mind, Panama can be a good choice. The country may be small in size but the advantages it offers for business formation and expansion should not be overlooked. For expanding company operations in Panama, our expertise and consultation can be of use to you. You may check out our Panama Company Formation services.

The location of a country should be analyzed before you pick it as your venture expansion destination. In this regard, Panama is perfect for serving as the gateway for your business to enter the Latin American market. It is bordered by the Caribbean Sea, Colombia  and Costa Rica. You can set up a business expansion hub here and then expand operations into neighboring countries.

The economy of Panama is mostly based on commerce, trading and tourism. Over the years, several mid to large sized companies have chosen Panama for business expansion needs. This is not without enough reasons. One obvious advantage of taking business to Panama is the ease of starting operations. Company registration can be completed within a fortnight and you may not be physical present in the territory when that takes place.

Taxation issues need to be analyzed well before starting business in any country. Panama govt does not require tax from companies if their income is derived outside its territory. The country also has robust asset protection laws for businesses. Offshore companies operating in the country do not have to cope with hassles of currency exchange limitations. So, fund transfer in and outside of the country can be done minus woes. These may seem motivating for you to start a venture in Panama. However, you may try our Panama Company Formation services.

The economic growth of Panama is solid and the political stability is also pretty good. These factors are reassuring for entrepreneurs thinking of investing in the country- as it is. The Colon Free Trade Zone, located strategically also lures many entrepreneurs to Panama. It offers storage sans charges and other benefits.
