The firm displays uncompromising professional excellence in all its operations, maintaining extraordinary proficiency, creative thinking, top-quality human capital, remarkable interpersonal skills, and particular specializations in various taxation topics.

Human capital primarily consists of former tax administration officials

The firm was established about a decade ago by Adv. Itay Bracha, a third-generation tax expert, who has gained many years of experience in the tax department of a renowned family accounting firm.

The firm provides services to corporations and private clients and its clientele includes leading commercial companies in Israel and worldwide, private individuals and high-net-worth families, high-tech companies, entrepreneurs, public companies, investment funds, banks, and leading financial institutions in Israel and abroad, local authorities and many others.

Due to the extreme complexity and broad spectrum of the tax practice area, and from the aspiration to provide its clients with the most professional and uncompromising service, the firm appointed, in each department, a department manager with a particular in-depth specialization in the department’s practice area. Most of the managers are former senior officers of the Tax Authority, with unique expertise in their respective fields.

In addition, the department provides representation in VAT appraisal-related proceedings in the court.

Tax expertise on both sides of the barricade - business -tax intelligence

The fact that most of the firm’s employees were former executives and employees of the Tax Authority means that tax planning, tax discussions, preliminary tax decisions, and ongoing monitoring are all based on extensive experience and a deep understanding of the system.

A further benefit is a familiarity with the human capital of the authority, of its paradigm of thinking and of the decision-making processes it applies, as well as extensive experience gained by working with the various regulators and courts, on both sides of the fence. The firm’s experience is its greatest asset and drives it to consistently achieve the best results for its clients.
