Comparing gift taxes in France and Israel can be crucial for people with ties to both countries. Tax differences can influence decisions about money transfers and donations between these two nations. Our firm, experts in French-Israeli taxation, offers specialized services to help clients manage the tax aspects of donations.

Donation tax in France

In France, donations are subject to a specific tax system. Donation taxes vary according to the relationship between donor and beneficiary, and the value of the assets donated. Tax allowances and reductions reduce the tax burden, and formalities must be complied with when making a donation in France.

Gift tax is calculated according to the relationship between the donor and the beneficiary. The closer the relationship, the lower the duty.

Deductions and reductions apply to gift tax, depending on the situation of the donor and beneficiary. Allowances vary according to the relationship and nature of the assets donated. Some allowances are renewable every 15 years, enabling you to gradually pass on your assets tax-free. Reductions may be granted on the basis of the donor's age, or for donations made within a family context.

To make a donation in France, you need to comply with certain formalities. Depending on the nature of the assets donated, a notarial deed may be required, as is the case for property donations. For gifts of movable property (money, securities, etc.), a notarial deed is not always required, but is recommended to secure the transaction and benefit from any tax reductions. Finally, to avoid penalties, the donation must be declared to the tax authorities within the allotted time.

Tax on donations in Israel

Israel's gift tax system differs from that of France. One of the main differences is that there is no gift or inheritance tax in Israel. However, certain inheritance tax rules must be taken into account, and specific formalities must be complied with when making a donation in this country.

Unlike France, Israel does not impose a tax on donations. This can be a considerable advantage for both donors and beneficiaries, particularly when it comes to passing on assets.

To make a donation in Israel, it is advisable to comply with certain formalities. First of all, it's a good idea to note the relationship between the donor and the recipient on a contract, and to specify the amount. Secondly, it is advisable to use the services of a notary to draw up a deed of gift, particularly for real estate donations. Finally, in the case of real-estate donations, the donation must be declared to the Israeli tax authorities within the allotted time, to avoid any penalties.

In short, although the Israeli tax system does not impose a gift tax, it is essential to take into account the rules governing inheritance tax and to comply with the formalities required to make a gift in Israel. For this, it is advisable to enlist the help of professionals who are experts in French-Israeli taxation.

Comparison of French and Israeli tax treatment of donations

It is essential to analyze the differences between the two donation tax systems to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each system for donors and recipients. To illustrate these differences, we will present a few concrete examples.

In France, gift tax depends on the relationship between the donor and the beneficiary, and on the value of the assets donated. The applicable allowances and reductions help to reduce the tax burden, but there are formalities to be complied with when making a donation. For example, a gift of money between parents and children benefits from an allowance of 100,000 euros every 15 years, and property donations require a notarial deed.

In Israel, on the other hand, there is no tax on gifts between relatives, which can be a considerable advantage for both donors and beneficiaries. However, it is important to take into account the rules governing inheritance tax and to comply with the formalities required to make a donation. For example, heirs may be subject to inheritance tax depending on their relationship to the deceased and the value of the inherited assets. if one of the 2 parties is not an Israeli tax resident.

In short, the French tax system for donations is more complex and demanding than that of Israel. Nevertheless, the French tax system offers a number of allowances and reductions that can ease the tax burden for certain categories of donors and beneficiaries. In Israel, the absence of gift tax simplifies the transfer of assets.

To make the most of these two tax systems, it is advisable to enlist the help of professionals who are experts in French-Israeli taxation.
