Why choose Dray & Natco to set up a business in Israel?

In Israel, there are three main types of company, each with its own advantages and specific features.

Our business start-up services include the opening of the following structures (your choice):

1. Ossek Patour (Self-Entrepreneur): This is the Israeli equivalent of the auto-entrepreneur. This option is VAT-exempt and offers administrative simplicity for individual entrepreneurs. See more information on Ossek Patour.

2. Ossek Mourché (Sole Proprietorship): This form of sole proprietorship has no sales ceiling, but is in its own name, which means there is no moral separation between the business and the owner. See more information on Ossek Mourché.

3. Hevra Baam (LTD): Israel's equivalent of a French SAS or SARL. It offers a moral separation between the company and its owners, thus limiting their liability. See more about the Hevra Baam.
