Aspire Global has Reached an Agreement with the Israeli Tax Authority
Aspire Global Group announces that a settlement has been reached with the Israeli tax authority (“ITA”) in the previously disclosed tax audit related to management and control jurisdiction, permanent establishment and transfer pricing among the group entities. Aspire Global has agreed to pay €13.7 million in retroactive tax relating to the 11 fiscal years 2008-2018. The resolution brings an end to all related investigations into the company.
The audit has been mentioned in the Financial Notes and Risk Management sections of the 2018 Annual Report, interim reports and the prospectuses related to the IPO and bond issue.
Today, December 31st 2019, an agreement has been reached with the Israeli tax authorities according to which:
- Aspire Global will pay an additional tax of approximately €13.7 million related to the 11 fiscal years 2008-2018 (inclusive);
- no penalties are to be imposed as a result of the audit; and
- the agreement covers the entirety of the Group's activity in Israel.
This additional tax charge will be reflected as an exceptional item in the Group’s accounts for 2019 and the payment is expected to be made in the next couple of days.
The settlement with the ITA was actively chosen over a lengthy period of uncertainty. The Group's financials remain strong despite the agreement and per September 30th, cash amounted to €43.1 million.
