The EMMA regime (Special Regime for the Establishment and Operation of Multinational Companies Providing Manufacturing-Related Services) is a special fiscal and operational framework created by the Government of Panama to attract foreign investments and promote the country’s economic growth.
Current Status of the Regime
Currently, more than 182 companies are registered under the EMMA and SEM regimes in Panama. This growth is attributed to the attractive advantages offered by the EMMA regime, as well as Panama’s political and economic stability, its strategic location, and world-class infrastructure.
The EMMA regime provides a range of benefits to companies registered under its umbrella, including tax, immigration, and labor incentives. You can find more information on our EMMA page.
The EMMA regime has had a significant positive impact on the Panamanian economy. It has contributed to attracting new foreign investments, creating job opportunities, and promoting the country’s economic growth.
Is the EMMA Regime Suitable for All Companies?
