Why a trust?
A trust allows any individual or corporation to separate an estate to serve specific purposes. These purposes may be as varied as familiy and corporate planning, testamentary trusts, investments of various types, asset protection, serving as guarantee in an operation of real estate development or of another kind, or complying with the legal requirement of creating a fund in favor of the employees of a corporation for severance payments, just to name a few.

Why Panama?
Even though Panama competes with other financial centers in the region, it has unquestionable advantages due to several factors, such as: its dollarized economy, the Panama Canal, the presence of one of the largest Free Trade Zone in the world, the three decades of major international banking operations based in Panama, the well-known, respected and internationally oriented professional community of law and accounting practitioners, trust and management companies and financial institutions including a rapidly developing securities stock exchange.
How does it work?

A trust is a legal act whereby a person (whether an individual or a corporate entity) transfers assets to another person (whether an individual or a corporate entity) either for his/her own benefit or the benefit of third parties, being these transferred assets a separate estate from the trustee’s assets.

It may be constituted over any kind of assets, present or future and for any legal purpose. The assets transferred to a trust will not subject to liens or preventive actions, except by causes expressly set by Law.

The trustee is responsible for its acts in such capacity and shall render accounts to the settlor as determined by the parties in the trust instrument.

Panamanian Law provides for the obligation of employees and representatives of the trustee, as well as those of the public supervising agencies, to keep strict reserve on the information concerning trust operations, exception made for certain disclosures required due to the supervision to which the activity is subject.

How is the tax treatment?

The tax consequences for trusts in Panama will very much depend on the income source generated by the assets held in trust. The particulars of each case are explained in detail to our clients.
