Client Update | Israeli Tax Authority – “Exporter Affidavit”

7 September 2016

The following update addresses the issuance of a “temporary directive” by the Israeli Tax Authority – the “Exporter Affidavit” form, which will take effect from September 1, 2016 (“the Directive”). It will serve as an additional requirement for exporters to complete, as part of the Israel Government’s enforcement of the Defense Export Control Law, 2007 and other relevant orders related to the export of defence and dual use goods (together, “the Relevant Legislation”).

Specifically, in order to ensure that goods to be exported meet the provisions of the Relevant Legislation, the exporter will be required to prepare an exporter affidavit (including information about the destination and content of the goods), and submit it to a customs agent, together with the export invoice and other export documents.

The Directive applies to all exporters and all exported products, but it imposes stricter requirements and levels of supervision on exporters who are registered as “defence exporters” with the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Export Control Agency (“DECA”) – (the “Defence Exporters”) than any exporters which are not Defence Exporters.
