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.

Barnea’s Tax team advises 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. The team represents 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.

The team collaborates 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 tax.

 

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.

District Court Ruling: Azrieli Foundation Exempt from Paying Taxes on Dividends

An Israeli district court rejected the Israel Tax Authority’s attempt to force the Azrieli Foundation to pay taxes in the amount of tens of millions of shekels for dividends it received and continues to receive due to its holding in Azrieli Group's shares. The court accepted the tax appeal, which was filed by Barnea Jaffa Lande, and ruled that the Azrieli Foundation,  a non-profit organization that works for the public good in Israel, is not the controlling owner of Azrieli Group and is therefore entitled to a tax exemption. The court ruled, among other things, that the ITA’s position could have a chilling effect in relation to business entities’ support of philanthropic associations. Our firm's  Zohar Lande, Eyal Nachshon, Harel Perlmutter, Nir Ziman, and Omer Keydar represented the Azrieli Foundation throughout the proceedings, which lasted about five years.
