Israel this week announced that it would be joining the new OECD digital tax treaty that will provide a new framework for countries to collect taxes from global corporations, who have been able to skirt many local tax requirements.  The move, announced by Finance Minister Avigdor Leiberman, may lead to receiving more revenue from the giant companies in Israel, but will still allow them to receive government grants for opening in the periphery. Dr. Tamir Sha’anan, vice dean at the Faculty of Law at the College of Management, told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that Israel decision requires Israel to come up with alternative benefits to offer to these multination companies to come to Israel.
