Panama limited companies offshore are among the best offshore vehicles available for asset protection and mitigating taxes. Increasingly, Panama limited companies are used for trade internationally especially by corporations that are considering Latin America as a new market for exporting goods to or opening factories, shipping lines and stores.

Together with a Panama offshore bank account and foundation, a Panama limited company offshore is capable of producing very desirable results as an offshore entity for privacy and asset protection because of Panama’s sturdy legislation with regard to privacy and legal procedures for creating and managing offshore Panama limited companies. Offshore Panama limited companies are tax exempt on the grounds that none of the income that the company earns comes from within Panama. All active trading activities and income generation must be outside of Panama. Offshore Panama limited companies can however open offshore bank accounts in Panama and consult with local professionals.

A Panama limited company can only be registered with a notary public who assumes the responsibility of getting all necessary paperwork, filing and registering done on behalf of the individual(s) or corporation(s) forming the offshore Panama limited company. All registered representatives for Panama limited companies must be licensed and authorized by the government to operate as offshore service providers. Panama’s electronic registration system makes the incorporation process for Panama ltd. companies offshore much quicker and easier. This makes it possible for large numbers of companies to be processed and speeds up the incorporation time.

Panama limited companies can also establish their own by-laws in keeping with the Panama Corporation Law and establish rules and guidelines with respect to the appointment and dismissal of officers and directors and for the management of the assets and liabilities of an offshore Panama limited company.
