Expatriate Employees Taxation

With respect to non-Israeli source personal or investment income that may be earned by the expatriate employee, this income would generally be outside the scope of Israeli taxation.

Under Israeli sourcing rules, employment income is regarded as being sourced at the place where the related work is performed. Accordingly, employment income derived by the expatriate employee relating to his performance of services in Israel would be subject to Israeli taxation, unless an exemption is made available in accordance with the relevant double tax treaty.

Under local legislation the Israeli income tax liability that arises for the expatriate employee is the same, irrespective of:

  • The employer being a foreign entity or a branch or local subsidiary;
  • Whether the salary might be paid in Israel or abroad;
  • The salary being paid in foreign or local currency; or
  • Where the expatriate employee signs the employment contract.

Where there is no PE (Permanent Establishment) but the employees are in Israel for equal to or more than 183 days, the company will be required to register a WHT file to report the salaries and remit the applicable Israeli income taxes due. Where the liability for employee taxes are to be borne by the Company (and not the employees), in computing the Israeli income tax and social taxes due, it will be necessary to gross up the compensation for the taxes paid by the Company.

Basis of Israeli Taxation

Under Israeli tax law, non-resident individuals are generally taxable on a territorial basis on Israeli source income which is defined as income accrued or derived in Israel. With respect to non-Israeli source personal or investment income that may be earned by the expatriate employee, this income would generally be outside the scope of Israeli taxation.

Under Israeli sourcing rules, employment income is regarded as being sourced at the place where the related work is performed. Accordingly, employment income derived by the expatriate employee relating to his performance of services in Israel would be subject to Israeli taxation, unless an exemption is made available in accordance with the relevant double tax treaty.
