After the publication of the so called “The Panama Papers”, having a Corporation or a Foundation of Private Interest in Panama has almost become an international stigma, without there being legal grounds to consider this as a crime.

The incorporation of an “offshore” Company or a Foundation in Panama does not constitute an illegality in itself, given the fact that the crime only exists depending on the purposes for which it is created, for example, in the case where the purpose is to defraud the fiscal authorities, money laundering, drug trafficking, or other criminal operations performed by individuals who prefer to stay in the shadows. Although an “offshore” company may offer a wider autonomy to manage assets, it does not grant the right to commit a crime. For this reason, the Panamanian government has established certain transparency laws, forcing financial and non-financial subjects, including lawyers and accountants, to report any suspicious activity or possible tax evasion.

Both corporations and private interest foundations provide confidentiality and privacy to its beneficiaries, facilitate agreements between partners and the orderly distribution of profits of a business or the estate of a family. For the most part, entities are created for legal and legitimate purposes, such as vehicles of investment and estate planning, and operate under strict local and international regulations.

For this reason, is vital to individually analyze each corporate entity or client, to ensure that the purpose of the “offshore” Company or Foundation fully complies with the rules and regulations that guarantee their ethical and lawful operation at all times. This way, all public information collected after a thorough legal research among the different government offices, can be made available to public authorities and financial companies when required as part of an investigation.

However, if proof of ownership of a company is required, a Share Certificate would be necessary; these are considered private documents and are not publicly accessible through regular procedures.

For Companies: Name of the Officers, Directors and Subscribers of the Company, Share Type, Amount of Share Capital and Number of Shares, Authenticated Copy of the Registered Minutes (Registered Changes), Tax Payments (“Annual Franchise Tax”), Income Tax Returns, Pending Procedures.    

 

For Foundations: Name of the Members of the Foundation Council and of the Founder of the Foundation, Authenticated Copy of the Registered Minutes (Registered Changes), Tax Payments (“Annual Franchise Tax”), Pending Procedures.

Not all real estate in Panama is titled “error free” or in a perfect way. A potential buyer needs to know if the real estate he/she wishes to acquire has a “Property Title” or if it only has a “Possession Right”. The safest way to invest in real estate in Panama is to buy a property title duly registered in the Public Registry of Panama, either registered under the name of a person or a corporate body (Company or Foundation).
Gomez Tomiczek International Group offers a complete legal analysis of the real estate you wish to buy, which includes reviewing the property registry information recorded in the Public Registry, confirming that the seller is the legitimate owner, as well as the existence of any encumbrance or other legal impediment affecting such property. This information is based on the record of previous and current owners, including corporate bodies and their legal representatives, mortgagees, adjoining property, cadastral property value, property improvements declared value, updated information among the government entities involved in the transfer, applied tax exemptions, debts and amounts owed to the tax authorities or to other public entities, obtaining good standing certificates, among others.
Due diligence is an essential process for all sales, guaranteeing a successful transaction avoiding future negative surprises. The collection of legal information allows the client to understand the characteristics and discrepancies of the property, facilitating decision making, and reducing the risks involved when making an investment.
The information issued by the government entities of Panama is delivered to the client in a hard copy version, and digitally in a PDF file, via e-mail using military grade encryption from point to point, increasing confidence and security when sending information and when carrying out all proceedings related to the transfer of ownership of the property.
The information recorded in the registry about a property may not always be correct, there may be involuntary human errors that when analyzed by our firm, will allow us to request public offices any necessary correction is made in a timely way, permitting information to be accurate, avoiding delays in transactions attributable to this type of errors, or even losing a right previously consolidated after a sale transaction.
