  Foreigners Advantages in Panama  

Information Icon

Buying properties in Panama is very safe. There are over a dozen laws in Panama established specifically for protecting foreign investments.

Foreigners can own titled property in Panama in their names. However, legal advisors usually recommend that clients hold all property in the name of a Panamanian/Offshore Corporation or Private Foundation for asset protection and income tax reasons. 

There are Properties for sales that include a Panama Corporation or an Offshore Private Foundation. Buy the property and get all Offshore Advantages without additional cost and legal delays…by transferring the shares of the Corporation or Foundation. Then only the corporate shares are being sold as the Title or Right Of Position (ROP) remains in the Corporation/Foundation’s name. This is a faster and easier option than re-issuing the Title/ROP certifications to the new buyer’s name.

My legal advisor made me a list of significant advantages for foreigners to own a Panama Offshore Corporation or a Panama Offshore Foundation. I want to share this information with you.
