Tax / Employee Tax Benefits

Corporations understand and recognize that human capital is a critical component of any company’s success. Therefore, they consider the planning and implementation of attractive employee remuneration policies as a key means for recruiting and retaining high caliber employees and executives.

Barnea provides legal advice to a broad spectrum of clients, from tiny startups and private companies to public companies in Israel and abroad, not only to employers, but also to employees and executives, in relation to a wide variety of issues relating to remuneration, incentives and employee and executive retention.

 

Our tax department works closely with our Employment department and our commercial department in order to come up with creative solutions that will ensure congruence between a company’s targets and its remuneration mechanisms, including 102 stock option plans pursuant to section 102 of the Israeli Tax Ordinance, equity incentives, phantom option agreements and grants, golden parachute arrangements, employee remuneration during merger and acquisition transactions, and more.
