Our team advises on all taxation aspects of corporate and individual real estate transactions as well as the general day-to-day tax issues arising from the acquisition, management and sale of Israeli real estate. On the contentious side, we also represent our clients in disputes with the Israeli national and municipal tax authorities on matters involving property taxes.
We have considerable experience of all tax aspects of property transactions, including land appreciation tax, land betterment tax, acquisition tax, value added tax, municipal betterment taxes and local municipal taxation (arnona).
We act for individual resident and non-resident investors, funds and institutional clients, as well as leading players in the construction industry, in structuring their Israeli property investments and developments. Our team has extensive experience structuring investment vehicles, joint ventures and partnerships in the most tax efficient manner, taking into account, where relevant, any applicable tax treaties and any tax benefits that may be available from the Israeli tax authorities through the Israeli Investment Centre.
