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.

Returning Residents: Welcome Back to Israel?

Each year, many returning residents arrive in Israel. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the number of people seeking to return to Israel has increased even further. The process of returning to Israel is not simple, and returning residents face enormous difficulties as part of it. A Ynet article on the subject featured an interview with Harel Perlmutter, a partner and the head of the firm’s Tax Department. Harel explained: “Those who return to Israel after less than six years abroad have almost no tax benefits.” He added that “there is a great confusion about the rights and benefits returning residents are eligible to from the National Insurance Institute. Over the years, the benefits for returning returns have been cut back, and this has kept people away from the country.”
