Structuring International Transactions
International transactions are normally more complicated than in border transactions because they involve foreign laws, risk of double taxation and different culture and language. Therefore, dealing with such transactions requires special skills and experience beyond the ordinary legal boundaries and particularly close familiarity with foreign legal systems and their basic principles. Our partners have unique experience in assisting clients in international transactions resulting from many years of experience of drafting and negotiating cross border deal in various sectors, such as Real Estate, High Tech, Defense, Energy, Chemical Industry etc.
Investing outside your country of residence requires careful review of your tax aspects because without planning you may be exposed to double taxation, first in the country of operation and second in the country of your residence. In addition, tax planning may also save you great amount of taxes as the choice of form of the transaction may result in substantial tax savings.
Investments in Israel
It is not a secret that Israeli law is complicated and without proper legal advice and assistance a foreign investor may find himself trapped in its arms. On the other hand, there are many loopholes that allow the sophisticated investor take advantage of the rules and benefit from them. This requires not just thorough knowledge of the strict provisions of the law but a combination of legal and practical aspects of the business environment and tax expertise.

Through our Amsterdam office we are able to provide our clients with the services of establishing companies in any one of the 27 countries being members of the EU, including management and administrative services at a very high standard and at relatively low costs.
