new fiscal year updates 2024

new fiscal year updates 2024

In honor of the new fiscal year, we have put together a number of important updates for you. We wish everyone a peaceful and successful new year and we pray for the safe return of our hostages and soldiers to their homes.

VAT reporting for an exempt dealer (Osek Patur)

Exempt dealers must report their transaction turnover (without expenses) to the VAT authority, for the year 2023 by January 31, 2024, in order to verify that they are still entitled to continue operating under the definition of an exempt dealer.
The turnover ceiling for an exempt dealer for 2023 was NIS 107,692.
If you have not yet reported, you can report on the blue form you received in the mail (or will receive later). Alternatively, you can report easily and quickly on the
(If you encounter any difficulty, please send us a request by email to the following address: Sari.w@aboulafia.co.il. Please type the following topic in the subject of the email: “Assistance in reporting income for an exempt deal”. Please include your ID number and the amount in the email and we will assist you with the reporting obligation).
If you have exceeded the income ceiling, you should contact our offices as soon as possible so that we can assist you in taking the appropriate actions.
Please note that the income ceiling for an exempt trader for the year 2024 will be NIS 120,000.

A Small Dealer (Osek Za’ir)

As of 2024, the concept of "small dealer" comes into legislation. The concept applies to the Income Tax Authority only (while in VAT, the concepts of exempt dealer and registered corporation – “osek morshe” –  remain unchanged).
A small dealer is a business owner whose transaction turnover (as reported to the VAT) is below the turnover ceiling for an exempt dealer, i.e., NIS 120,000 for the year 2024. It should be noted that a licensed dealer with a transaction turnover below the ceiling can also be considered a small dealer.
Several conditions must be met in order to benefit from the status of a small dealer – mainly that the dealer is not an employer, that there is no income from an existing employer, that no more than 25% of the turnover of the business is received from a relative and/or a previous employer (up to 3 years), and that you did not give up the status in 3 recent years.
A small dealer is entitled to deduct expenses from his business turnover at a fixed rate of 30% of the turnover, without the need for proof of actual expenses at all. It should be noted that the 30% includes the deductions that the dealer usually receives for Bituach Leumi payments and deductions for pension premium payments, etc. At this stage, it is not clear how the status affects the obligatory Bituach Leumi payments (including the health insurance component).
In addition, a small dealer will be exempt from submitting a full annual report to the tax authorities, assuming that he has no additional reason that requires him to submit a report.
No clear guidelines have yet been published regarding the actual implementation and the reporting method. Therefore, at this stage, we recommend that dealers continue to keep proof of expenses for 2024.
When we have more information, we will provide an update.
* Important clarification: American citizens who have businesses in Israel will be required to declare the actual expenses for tax reporting purposes in the US, and cannot use the automatic deduction that Israel grants

Starting in 2023, when owners of one apartment (only) rent it out, and at the same time rent an apartment in Israel for their residence (or make payments to a nursing home for their residence), the amount of rent paid can be deducted from the rent received, up to a ceiling of NIS 90,000 per year.
