Is Aliyah is a good time for me to start a business?
Except in extreme conditions, the usual answer to this question is no.
Starting a new business involves risk and before making any commitment you should consult with a local accountant and lawyer.
In Israel the process of setting up a business venture requires all the usual formalities of registration with the tax authorities, Customs & Excise and National Insurance
There are so many things that change in a person’s life when making aliyah that if you can (at least initially) keep your career the same, it will reduce instability and make your absorption smoother.
After you have been in Israel for a while and have become acclimated to the business culture, you may indeed decide to try something different; you will then have the knowledge to proceed in a more intelligent manner.
