Did you know? On average, Israeli #startups raise more than twice the amount raised by American startups and 20 times more than European startups. That’s because Israel considers its innovative minds a most valuable asset, and the government makes sure to nurture it.

In this context, one central issue within the #OECD #BEPS recommendations that Israel seeks to address is #IP registration location.

As part of the 2017-2018 state budget, Israel launched a new IP #tax regime. The new regime was tailored to the post-BEPS world, encouraging multinationals to consolidate IP ownership and profits in Israel along with existing Israeli research and development (R&D) functions.

What does this mean in practice?

* Wide definition of IP assets and IP sourced income
* 8 years tax amortization on acquired IP
* Easy entrance: no additional investments and no legal
registration are required
* Easy exit: only 6%/12% capital gain tax and no claw-back
of tax benefits under certain conditions
