China has become Israel’s second largest trading partner, trailing only the US. As the trade war between Washington and Beijing rolls on and investments from China come under greater scrutiny in the U.S. and Europe, Chinese companies continue to increase investing in Israel in infrastructure projects as part of Beijing’s multinational ‘one Belt and one Road’ Initiative. China is also investing in Israeli innovation and technologies.
However, being successful in doing business and investing in Israel is still a challenging process, considering cultural differences, language barriers, regulation and business issues. Brooks–Keret has recently set up its China desk to serve Chinese companies and integrate financial services starting its setup in Israel and provides the following services:
- CFO Service
- Company registration
- Bank account
- Files opening process
- VAT filing
- Bookkeeping & tax return
- Financial controlling
- Due diligence
