Together is global

Tax

Being able to advise across the whole spectrum of tax issues is a must for a leading commercial law firm which operates on a local and international level. Such firm should be as comfortable acting outside Israel as it is inside and as attuned to the needs of a foreign investor as it is to a local one.

We advise on the tax aspects of domestic and international transactions. We provide international tax planning that takes into account the impact of local and foreign income tax laws, international tax treaties, VAT or other indirect taxes. We represent clients before the Israel Tax Authority or in court. We are also experts on the tax implications of relocation for senior staff in international organizations, moving to or from Israel.

 

We collaborate with our commercial department to ensure the most tax and commercially efficient ways to effect any merger or acquisition, re-structuring, re-financing, or capital market transaction. We act for private clients too in relation to family wealth, particularly taxation of trusts and real estate.

 

Our experienced team serves a diverse client base, including leading private and publicly traded companies, global enterprises and foreign investors, venture capital funds and more.

Head of Deutsche Bank Israel Detained on Suspicion of VAT Offenses

Adv. Harel Perlmutter, Head of the Tax department at Barnea & Co., was interviewed by Tax Analysts following the arrest of the chief executive of Deutsche Bank's operation in Israel on suspicion of violating VAT law. The Israel Tax Authority claims that the customers, in respect of whom Deutsche Bank reported its transactions as being zero rated, allegedly because they were conducted on behalf of “foreign residents”, were actually Israeli residents. Harel commented that it is often difficult to determine whether someone is a foreign tax resident.
