  4. My wife, Molly, and I are looking for a clean pool where we can swim laps several mornings per week at a reasonable price. The water doesn't need to be heated as we can swim in wetsuits, but access to a locker room/changing room would definitely be a plus. We're aware of Valle Escondido, The Haven, El Seminario, Blue Sky, and Santa Lucia. What have we missed? Thanks!
  5. On March 14th, 2018, in a matter of minutes, the public announcement regarding the closing down of the law firm, which played a leading role in the well-known "Panama Papers", is being published worldwide. The law firm Mossack Fonseca & Co., Bufete MF & Co. or Grupo Mossack & Fonseca has closed its activities on the 30th of April, 2018, in all of its branch offices around the world, including its head quarter in Panama City. In Panama, the "offshore" incorporation and financial business sector is an important pillar for the national economy, and sustains almost 50% of the service sector. What are the consequences for the affected clients? Change of Resident Agent According to Article No. 2 of Law No. 32 of February 26th, 1927 all corporate bodies in Panama must have, mandatorily, a registered agent or resident agent in Panama; which can be a law firm or a practicing lawyer that represents the corporate body in Panama. If the corporation is left without resident agent (due to the resignation thereof), it will only have a period of 90 days to appoint and register a new resident agent in the Mercantile Section of the Public Registry of Panama. Otherwise, the Panamanian government will proceed to fine the affected corporation and will inactivate its status through official order. Inactive Corporations In September 2017, by means of the Resolution No. 201-5612, the process for the inactivation of corporations due to arrearage in payment of the mandatory annual franchise tax for more than three (3) consecutive years has been approved. In the past, after ten (10) years of not paying the annual franchise tax, the affected corporations were dissolved by official order. With the change of this legal base, thousands of corporations in Panama are currently "inactivated" by the tax collector office (DGI for its acronym in Spanish), which also affects their status in the Mercantile Section of the Public Registry, often without knowledge of the owners (foreign shareholders) of said corporations. For the reactivation of an inactivated corporation, a fine of one thousand US Dollars (USD$1,000.00) must be paid to the competent authority (additionally to the payment of the pending franchise tax plus interests), and the reinstatement of the corporation must be requested formally at the Panamanian tax collector office. Later on, the tax collector office must inform the Public Registry of the re-activation of the corporation, which will then reset the original status. Illegal Use of "Offshore" Corporations The incorporation of an "offshore" corporation does not constitute an illegality in itself, since the crime depends on the purposes for which it was created. Such as defrauding the treasury, money laundry, drug trafficking or other criminal intentions being the leading objective of the "offshore" corporation, where the main characters involved prefer to hide in the shadows. Although an "offshore" corporation offers greater autonomy to manage a business, it does not grant the right to commit crimes. It is for that reason that the Panamanian government has established certain transparency laws, binding for financial and non-financial individuals, including lawyers and accountants, obligating these professionals to report any suspicious activity or any potential tax evasion to the competent authority. Transparency in Legal Proceedings It is for that reason, that each case must be considered individually, in order to assure that the objective of the "offshore" corporation complies with the established rules and regulations in order to guarantee its ethical and legal operation at all time. The creation of an "offshore" corporate body may help to reduce its tax burden in a meaningful manner. But this does not mean that the tax laws in the country of origin may be or can be fully avoided. Trying to hide money from the tax system in the country of origin is deemed as an unlawful use of an "offshore" corporation. Elimination of the "Offshore" Type Corporation Through Resolution No. 201-1254 issued by the tax collector office of Panama (DGI) and published in the Official Gazette on the 9th of March 2018, the categorization of corporations has been restructured. From now on Panamanian corporations will be categorized by the fact that their income derivates from a Panamanian source, or not, with the purpose of establishing their tax obligations in Panama and abroad. Corporations that derivate their income from a Panamanian source (as low as its percentage may be), will be determined as "type A", and are obligated to file an annual income tax return (ISR for its acronym in Spanish) or an Income Affidavit with the Panamanian tax office. Those corporations that are only incorporated for the purpose of ownership of a certain asset or real estate property ("holding"), that do not conduct any business, nor derivate any income from a Panamanian source, or if their income is derived 100% from a foreign source ("offshore"), are considered "type B", and therefore, are not obligated to file an annual income tax return with the Panamanian authorities nor declare their income, since these corporations are currently tax-exempted. The "E-tax" System and Income Tax Return in Panama It is important to mention that those corporations that did not declare the origin of their income at the time of their registration, must do it now, by updating their information in the "e-tax" system, in order to avoid that the tax collector office in Panama will fine them for not submitting the annual income tax return on time.

    Two virtuosos of the guitar at Boquete Library Make a space in your calendar because this Saturday, July 7th the library will be host of a unique presentation from the 16th International Guitar Festival of Panama. This Festival is organized by the talented Panamanian musician Emiliano Pardo Tristán, who delighted our ears at the last concert. This time we will be visited by two young virtuosos, participants of the festival: Marco Corrales from Costa Rica and Jesús Serrano from Mexico. The first of our guests was the winner of the International Guitar Contest of Panama and since 2016 he started recording his album: “A century of Costa Rican Guitar” that mixes eleven songs and immortalizes the musical culture of Costa Rica. The second, winner of around 50 awards in America and Europe, is known as “the devil of the guitar” and stands out for his refined presentations full of energy. Prepare yourself for a concert of vibrant melodies through the guitar: a classical instrument that reinvents itself day by day. Enjoy this musical journey with international quality musicians. Tickets available in Mail Boxes Etc & Boquete Library.

  18. From Newsroom Panama this morning (May 26) Two new convention centers on stream Posted on May 25, 2016 in Panama PANAMA’S ability to attract conferences will get a shot in the arm from the redesigning of the stalled Convention Center in Amador and plans for a center in Boquete The Panama Tourism Authority has announced that it has redesigned the Amador project, which has been suspended for a year after the original construction company ran out of money. Authority Manager Gustavo Him said that the building will be used for conventions and “not social events,” which he said will generate more revenue. He explained that the new design includes more parking, more flor space and new entries. It will cost $193.7 million and be ready in mid-2018. He also announced plans to build a convention center in Boquete. The consortium CCA-COCIGE, which consists of CCA Building Panama, S.A., China State Construction Engineering Corporation Ltd. and Construcciones Civiles Generales, S.A., is now in charge of the project. This controversial project was awarded to the consortium HPC-Contrata-P&V. But in December 2014 it informed the authorities that it did not have the liquidity to finish it. The transfer to the new entity was approved in January.

  21. Yesterday's hike was fun as, we hiked in an area, I have not hiked on for a year or more. Palmira Abajo the area, we hiked, has many wonderful country lanes one of the reasons why, I enjoy hiking this highland area in the Boquete District as there are so many trails to choose, from easy to difficult. For the Boquete Nature Hike group on "Easy Wednesday", I choose trails easy to maneuver on for a 2-3 hour morning nature walk. Nevertheless, I do insist that you must be in good health to join this group. Hope you join us one morning! Here are a few of my photos from yesterday's hike. Explore Dream Discover
