Setup of Global Business in Israel

Opening a Global Business in Israel Expanding your business overseas can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to setting up shop in a foreign country. At BDO Israel's Global Outsourcing team, we understand the challenges you may face when establishing a branch or subsidiary in Israel for R&D, sales, marketing, or customer support. We are here to help streamline the process, alleviate the stress of registration and compliance, and ensure your business is compliant from day one.

Several factors come into play when setting up a foreign company in Israel. Decisions need to be made regarding the structure of the set-up, including the potential exposure for maintaining a Permanent Establishment ("PE") and the filing obligations required, even when the corporation has no sales activity in Israel.
