The Republic of Panama is located in Central America between Costa Rica in the north and Colombia in the south. Above all, the Panama Canal is known, which still plays a significant role in the economy of the country. Panama has a population of about 2.3 million people.

The official language is Spanish, but predominantly English is spoken in the conurbations Panama City and Colon.

Panama became an independent republic in 1903 and is characterized by continued stability and a good business climate. The head of state is a president who is elected every five years. Due to the geographical location of the country, the location is particularly suitable for companies that want to operate in the sectors of raw materials, transport and logistics.

Your company in Switzerland

Switzerland is rightly regarded as one of the most important and stable economies in the world and enjoys an excellent reputation internationally as a business location.

The most important types of companies in Switzerland are the limited liability company (GmbH) with a capital contribution of only CHF 20,000 and the corporation (AG). Almost every third company founding in Switzerland is now run by a foreigner. For most EU citizens, freedom of movement also applies in Switzerland.

In recent years, the canton of Zug, in which our Business Center is located, has a prominent position in corporate settlements, developing next to Zurich in a globally important financial center. With a tax rate of only 12% in 2019, the canton, which is already the most economically-friendly canton in Switzerland, has become even more interesting. Entrepreneurs can benefit in particular from several tax advantages and liberal economic policy, they have no publicity obligation at the AG, can only be held liable to a limited extent and do not have to name their investors. The AG has the highest acceptance among customers, suppliers and investors.

The legal regulations in Switzerland are very straightforward and entrepreneur-friendly. Many hurdles and stumbling blocks that are placed in the way of company founders elsewhere are not available in Switzerland.

The same applies if no founding of a corporation or partnership is planned, but rather the establishment of a joint venture. Instead, a foreign company can also establish a branch. Such branches have some organizational and financial independence from the parent company. Membership of a professional association or chamber is not a requirement, unlike other states. Provided that all prerequisites are met, a business start-up can be completed within two to three weeks regardless of the sector, in the express procedure, a company is even entered in the commercial register within about five days.
