Who are we?
The firm of Aboulafia, Avital, Shrensky & Co. is a leading, experienced CPA firm in Israel, with an international presence and is a part of the PrimeGlobal network. The Firm’s employees have over 30 years of experience in various accounting and tax disciplines.

What do we do?
Today’s business world, with technology being a key component in development, and many businesses becoming global, has resulted in accounting becoming a profession that requires significant expertise in a wide range of domains. We are proud of our ability to provide complete, comprehensive infrastructure for all accounting services required for our clients’ business success, providing solutions for each and every stage. Our services include planning at the outset, on-going assistance, providing audit, tax, controller and consulting services that cover taxation, both in Israel and world wide all under one roof, all aspects of accounting operations.
We provide, inter alia, solutions for the following:
- Financial statement audit
- Business strategy
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Real-estate transactions
- International taxation
- Tax planning
- Local taxation
- Individual taxation
- Income tax audit representation
- Trusts and estates
- Controller services and bookkeeping
- Internal audit
- Economic assessment
- Risk management
- Raising capital
- Non-profit organizations
- EU government grants
Business clients typically require a range of the aforementioned services on regular basis. Sometimes these are on-going activities, but in some cases, they are needed periodically. They are important because they are critical to the success of the business.
The question arises whether you should obtain all these services separately, from different, un-related professionals, each an expert in their own field, or from a CPA firm such as ours, bringing together a wide range of domains, being able to provide a solution for any accounting, economic or business issue that may arise. Our firm has a wide range of experts, from our partners on through our extensive connections established with top experts in Israel and overseas including attorneys, economists and CPAs in a wide range of specific domains, such as: international taxation, tax treaties, transfer pricing and valuations. In some cases we obtain legal and economic professional opinions from our colleagues – with our assistance in preparation and implementation of the opinion. Through this we ensure that our clients receive the most appropriate tax, financial and accounting advice.
We believe that business clients require the appropriate accounting and taxation infrastructure. Thus, in case a specific expertise is required – the infrastructure is already in place, and our experts can properly assess how any one aspect impacts the overall business picture, to provide value-added service that is forward looking.
Our added value

This way, we pave the road for our clients’ growth and business expansion.

With the proper accounting infrastructure in place, and the professional capacity to consider all of the different economic aspects and taxation systems, clients based in Israel with investments overseas, or foreign clients, whether immigrant or a corporation looking to set up operations in Israel, receive our assistance, both on the Israeli side and the international side, including filling financial statements and tax reporting in both countries.
