Business License (Operation Notice)

Companies willing to perform commercial and trade activities either on a retailer or wholesale basis in Panama must apply to a Business License through the electronic Platform known as Panama Emprende at the Ministry of Commerce.


For this purpose, we provide assistance and advice in the review of the activities that the company will develop to obtain the license.

The process to obtain such license is completely swift and expedite and can be carried out in one (1) business day provided that the company`s activities are not regulated and require an additional governmental license.

Our law firm has extensive experience in the process of authorization of a corporation or a natural person to carry out commercial activities in Panama.

It is important to clarify that the business license, will only be necessary for corporations that carry out commercial activities in Panama, that is, that generate local income in Panama. Offshore corporations do not require a business license.
