The corporation law of the Republic of Panama provides that any two natural persons acting as the 'organisers' and the 'subscribers' may appear before a Notano Publico to organise and constitute a corporation. (In Panama public notaries govern most entities under the direction of a government appointed lawyer.)

It is the usual practice for natural or juridical persons outside Panama to accomplish the formation of a Panama company through a local Panamanian law office, a trust company or a professional management company.

For the purpose of drafting necessary documents, the following simple information and particulars are supplied by the client to the incorporators.
  1. Name: A preferred name, with two alternatives in the event the desired name may conflict with a name already in use, expressed in any language, must include 'SA' (Sociedad Anonima), 'Corporation', or Corp.', or 'Incorporated'' or 'Inc.' to clearly denote a limited liability entity.

  2. Objects: While the standard Articles of Incorporation for a Panama company intentionally provide a very broad scope of it is not unusual to include one or more articles which deal with the client's intended

  3. Capital: The capital of a Panama company is expressed as 'authorised capital' and there is no minimum capital or time limit requirement within which the authorised capital must be paid in. unless there is a compelling reason to the contrary, it is standard practice to specify an authorised capital of €10,000, represented by 100 common, voting shares having a par value of €100 each, or to express the capital as being 500 common, voting No par shares. In either case the nominal capital registration (payable once only) is €60.00

  4. Shares may be issued in ''Bearer' or in 'Nominative' form. Preferred, Class A, Class B, voting and non voting and other shares structures are permitted.

  5. Organisers: Local nominees usually act as the organisers and subscribers for incorporation purposes.

  6. Directors: A minimum (with no maximum) of three directors is required. These may be of any nationality residence or occupation; It is general practice to employ local nominees for this purpose. Juridical persons cannot act as directors.

  7. Officers: A President, a Secretary and a Treasurer are required. While these must be natural persons (not juridical persons), there are again no requirements as to nationality, residence or occupation. While one person may hold more than one office, it is customary that the President should not also be the Secretary. One of the officers is usually named as Vice-president. There may be as many Vice-presidents as required. Managers may also be named if desired. Local directors and officers are customary.

  8. Domicile: A Registered agent domiciled in Panama is required and law law must be a practicing lawyer or law firm. Local trust and management companies usually name their own lawyer as the Resident Agent.
The corporation may have a limited or unlimited life; it is customary for the 'duration' to be perpetual.

So simple is the formation procedure that incorporation can usually be effected within 24 hours.

While a corporate seal is now required. This should be a rubber stamp in the shape of a circle with Panama and your EXACT company name inside the circle.

Charges & Fees:

The all in cost for formation of a standard format Panama corporation will vary depending upon the agent retained by the client for the purpose. The charges set out below are average.

The endowment of a foundation capital is required exclusively destined to the purposes expressly provided in the foundation instrument. The foundation capital may be increased by the founder or by the Board of Governors of the Foundation. Constitution may be obtained through the following methods; a) private instrument subscribed by The founder, whose signature must he authenticated by a Notary Public; and b) before the Notary Public of the place of constitution.
