Accounting support for retailers in Israel

One of the first tasks of a chartered accountant is to draw up your balance sheet.

Once a year, a retailer must produce his annual accounts to declare his sales and calculate his profit.

It's also the time to take stock of your business over the past twelve months, and to receive advice for your future projects.

How much cash did you manage to generate over the past year?

Can you invest in new equipment?

Can you release credit for a marketing budget?

Retailers are often "alone" in their decision-making process. A chartered accountant can be at your side throughout the year, helping you draw up interim balance sheets and management charts, or simply meeting with you to advise you.

The chartered accountant can also help and advise you on drawing up your invoices and estimates, and on the choice of invoicing software.

In Israel, several companies offer cash register solutions. Ask us about the best accounting software for your needs!

Tax support for retailers in Israel.

When it comes to tax declarations, your certified public accountant in Israel can provide you with the expertise you need to make the tax declarations required for your business. (Maam - Israeli VAT, Mas Ahnassa - income tax in Israel, Bitouah Leoumi - social security contributions).

He is also on hand to provide advice and expertise on all your tax-related questions. (Application of VAT rates, VAT deductibility, tax credits, tax optimization in Israel).

For your tax return in Israel, you need to complete form 1301. Don't hesitate to ask us for advice. We can prepare your tax return for you, so that you can estimate your tax liability several months in advance.

We can also advise you on how to reduce your tax burden.

Social support for retailers

If you have employees, our firm of chartered accountants can draw up your company's payslips and social security declarations in Israel.

We can also guide you if you want to hire or terminate an employee: your chartered accountant can take care of hiring declarations, draw up employment contracts or amendments, and assist you with dismissal procedures or severance agreements.

Traders who are registered as Ossek Mouche can turn to his accountant to draw up the declaration that will serve as the basis for calculating his social security contributions. This declaration must be sent to the Bitouah Léoumi.

Our firm of chartered accountants can advise merchants who contribute to Bitouah Leoumi, helping them to plan their contributions in advance, spread them out or reduce them in the event of temporary cash-flow difficulties.
