Tax

  • We provide practical and effective tax advice designed to help clients make the right tax planning decisions, identify tax-efficient structures and develop effective tax strategies so as to prevent, or mitigate, any Israeli tax liabilities that may arise from their activities in Israel. We also have a strong tax disputes practice that has extensive experience in handling, negotiating and resolving tax investigations as well as disputed enforcement of Israeli tax law.

     

    Our tax practice covers every aspect of corporate, partnership and individual taxation in Israel, including cross-border taxation, transfer pricing policies and the applicability of double taxation treaties. We provide specialist tax advice on a stand-alone basis or as an integral part of our representation of clients in cross border and domestic transactions. Having extensive experience in the field of international taxation, as part of the process of providing tax planning advice, we are sensitive to the "home" tax considerations of our international clients.

     

    We represent foreign publicly traded and private companies with representative offices, subsidiaries or some kind of permanent base in Israel, domestic corporations, financial institutions, organisations, charities, not for profit organisations and high net worth individuals and families on tax structuring and transactions spanning a wide range of activities and industries.
