Tax / International Taxation

Barnea’s tax department provides legal advisory services to companies and individuals on all aspects of tax law. Our firm specializes in planning and creating optimal tax structures for diverse transactions and projects, from simple local structures to complex, cross-border structures.

Barnea provides legal and tax counselling for all types of transactions: mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, restructuring, financing transactions and outsourcing, both local and international.

 

Our legal opinions address complex issues of Israeli taxation and international taxation relating to foreign investors’ operations and investments in Israel and to Israeli clients’ international operations.

 

Our tax department possesses vast experience and expertise on the subject of planning of international tax structures, while taking into account the provisions of the relevant tax treaties (Double Tax Treaties, CRS, BEPS, FATCA and more). We advise clients on the issue of Transfer Pricing and the drawing up of agreements relating thereto. We also advise on the exposures of creating a Permanent Establishment, withholding tax, aspects of tax applicable to foreign residents and international companies, imports of services and assets, tangibles and intangibles, filings and representation during applications for pre-rulings from the tax authorities. We also provide guidance in compliance with administrative tax proceedings with a long-range perspective for our clients’ benefit and as part of our clients’ strategic and business planning.

 

Barnea’s tax department works in close coordination with our commercial department in order to ensure that the tax solutions are the most strategic, creative, efficient and effective and will not expose the corporation or shareholder at the corporate or tax level.
