Tax management in wartime

War has a significant impact on taxation and requires adaptation of tax strategies for individuals and companies in Israel. This section will look at tax challenges in times of conflict, government measures to support taxpayers and adapting tax strategies to the context.

Tax challenges for individuals and businesses in times of conflict

In times of war, individuals and companies face specific tax challenges. Income and investments may be affected by economic instability and geopolitical risks. Taxpayers must also take into account possible changes in tax laws and rates in response to the war situation.

Government measures to support taxpayers during the war

During wartime, governments may introduce measures to support taxpayers and help them cope with fiscal challenges. These measures may include tax relief, deferral of tax payments or additional deductions for war-affected companies and individuals. It is essential to keep abreast of changes in tax regulations and take advantage of the support measures on offer.

Adapting tax strategies to changing circumstances

Taxpayers need to adapt their tax strategies to the wartime context. This may involve reviewing and adjusting investments, reassessing tax benefits and deductions, and examining the tax implications of financial decisions made during the war. It's crucial to work with a tax expert, to develop a tax plan tailored to the situation.

A few tips

  1. Business owners are advised to continue operating their business remotely wherever possible. Manufacturing companies can transfer their equipment to another location and operate from the new location.
  2. It is advisable to keep the company's employees by paying their salary in full, especially for those who wish to remain with the company in the future. In cities close to GAZA, the employer will receive full compensation for the cost of the employee, while in other cities the employer may receive 75% of the employee's cost. (Each case is different).
  3. It is advisable to terminate the contracts of employees for whom there is no fear that they will not return to the company after the war, or those for whom replacements can be found if they do not return to work after the war. Under wartime relief, they will receive unemployment benefit from the first day of the end of the contract.
  4. For business owners and employees who were drafted in Milouim, it is advisable to quickly file a claim with the Bitouah Leoumi for reimbursement of reserve bonuses paid by the employer to his employees drafted and for the employer himself. Depending on the relief granted during the war period, it is not necessary to wait until the end of military service before filing a claim.
  5. It is also advisable to conclude agreements to defer payments to suppliers and service providers until the end of the war, beyond the 30 days stipulated by the law extending deadlines due to the war.
  6. It's a good idea to take advantage of the various facilities offered by banks, especially for business owners.
  7. For companies bound by rental agreements or other contracts with suppliers, it is advisable to consider how to terminate the contract or at least reduce the terms due to force majeure. This is particularly true for companies that are closed by order of the civil defense, and also for those who cannot use the products or services according to the contract.
  8. The best approach is to try to reach agreements with suppliers concerning the release of districts or their adaptation to the company's current situation due to the war, particularly when the company needs to retain the contractual side, such as: leases, supply of goods, tenders, etc.
  9. Now that the law on economic aid due to war has been approved, it is already advisable to prepare the calculation of the amount of the claim, in order to be able to submit the claim. In particular, for business owners, it is advisable to prepare damage calculations, relevant documents, etc. Prompt submission of the claim will help to receive the money quickly, or at least the advances due to the claim.
  10. It is advisable to look into the possibility of obtaining a loan from the State-guaranteed Loan Fund, which can provide financial assistance to business owners who have been affected by the war. See your bank for more information.
