Panama is located between Costa Rica and Columbia, and is considered as the connection between Central and South America. Spanish is the official language while English is also widely used. Panama is mostly known for its canal, which connects the Pacific (Gulf of Panama)and Atlantic (Caribbean Sea) oceans.

Panama-registered offshore companies are submitted to the same corporate laws as domestic companies. There is however no tax on income generated overseas.
