Born and educated in the UK, I have been based in Israel for 35 years. I was an international tax partner with a Big 4 accounting firm until late 2018, and have since established a boutique tax consultancy.

Drawing on decades of experience in both personal and corporate taxation, my practice is primarily focused on the following areas:

Personal – When it comes to taxation, individuals immigrating to Israel face a daunting challenge. In addition to having to come to terms with the constantly changing landscape of the Israeli taxation system, they need to overcome the cultural differences – inherent in any country move – in dealing with their tax affairs.

Corporate inbound – Foreign investors and immigrants looking to set up (or purchase) business operations in Israel face a labyrinth of tax issues related to corporate structure, company set-up, direct tax, indirect tax, employees’ deductions, national insurance, and withholding tax.

Corporate outbound – Many Israeli companies cannot justify an in-house tax function. When the company faces structural or other major decisions, this may result in problems of focus at the planning stage, followed by incomplete implementation. A qualified consultant, working closely with a company and – where relevant – its external tax advisors at key moments in its development, can compensate for these shortcomings while bringing substantial savings.

For many years Euromoney kindly included me in its ‘Guide To The World’s Leading Tax Advisors’.

In the course of my career I have lectured widely, and written extensively in the local press,

I am a member of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Israel, as well as the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

  1. John, loved the blog, especially the last posting.
    Great way to write about Taxes – clear and well defined topic, framed in a casual “setting” and stylishly presented with the right combination of facts and sense of humor.

  2. Too much of what you say about irresponsible government spending is unfortunately true, which is why we will never get an accountability package. we sadly have to leave the criticisms to worthy individuals like yourself! Good luck to you!
