Establishing an Entity in Turkey

Establishing a company in Turkey is a swift one-day process through submission of required documents to the relevant trade registry office. Official establishment occurs when founders express their intent to form a joint-stock company in the articles of association, complying with legal requisites and notarized signatures. Following registration with the trade registry, the company gains its “legal entity” status.

In Turkey, various company types are available:

Joint Stock Company (A.Ş.)

Capital divided into shares with limited shareholder liability. Requires at least one shareholder (individual or legal entity) and a minimum capital of TRY 50,000, with mandatory general assembly and board of directors.

Limited Liability Company (Ltd. Şti.)

Minimum of one shareholder with limited liability up to the capital, requiring a minimum capital of TRY 10,000.

Commandite Company

Combines limited and unlimited liability shareholders, with legal entities solely as commanditers. No minimum capital, and terms outlined in the articles of association.

Collective Company

All shareholders have unlimited liability, no minimum capital, and all shareholders must be individuals. Rights and obligations detailed in articles of association.

Establishing a company involves preparing three notarized article of association copies and submitting them, alongside other necessary documents, to the trade registry office within 15 days of notarization. These include a company establishment petition, founders’ statement, bank letter confirming capital deposit, bank receipt for the Turkish Competition Authority, and more.

Corporate entities should register their office address with the tax office and obtain a tax registration number. Legal books require Public Notary certification, with related registrations at the Tax and Social Security Institute during legal entity establishment.

For payroll processing without establishing a legal entity in Turkey, some providers offer an “umbrella service” solution, eliminating the need for a dedicated legal entity.

Requirement for Payroll in Turkey

When it comes to managing payroll in Turkey, compliance and efficiency are paramount. At Mercans, we recognize the significance of aligning with the essential requirements for seamless payroll processing in this dynamic business landscape. Here’s how we can assist you in navigating these prerequisites:

Registration of Employees to Statutory Bodies

Registration of New Hires / Leavers: In Turkey, the process of registering new hires and reporting employee departures to statutory bodies is a fundamental aspect of ensuring compliance with labor regulations. This essential procedure involves the submission of critical employee information to government agencies, establishing a solid foundation for legal and financial transparency within organizations. Key aspects of employee registration include enrolling individuals for income tax purposes and social security, alongside other mandated benefits, all of which are crucial for adhering to the Turkish labor code.

Income Tax: The registration of individual starters, leavers, or changes in registration status is not required at the time of occurrence. However, it is imperative that employers include the names of their employees in the year-end declaration, indicating the number of months each employee has worked during the tax year.

Social Security: Initiating and concluding employment relationships are pivotal events, and they must be reported to the Social Security Institution (SGK) promptly. Specifically, starter and leaver events must be declared to SGK before the 15th of the following month.

In addition to the flexi-form provided by the client, certain documents are essential for the registration of new hires with social security. These documents include a copy of the employee’s identification card.

This meticulous registration process is not only a legal requirement but also a testament to an employer’s commitment to ethical labor practices. It underscores an organization’s dedication to maintaining a transparent and accountable employment environment while mitigating the risk of penalties. Moreover, it contributes to the well-being of the workforce and supports government initiatives related to healthcare, retirement, and social security programs.

Ensuring that employees are properly registered with the relevant statutory bodies such as SSI is not just a legal obligation but also a responsible practice that fosters compliance, transparency, and the welfare of the workforce in Turkey.

Declarations to Statutory Bodies

Mercans recognizes the significance of social security and tax compliance, and we streamline the declaration process to perfection. Here’s how we ensure seamless execution:

Payroll Cycle Process

Payroll processing in Turkey is a meticulous operation guided by labor laws, tax regulations, and social security mandates. Maintaining accuracy throughout the process is essential, involving the calculation of employee salaries, benefits, and deductions within the framework of Turkish payroll parameters and tax codes. Mercans, a leading global payroll solutions provider, brings extensive expertise to this complex terrain. With an impressive 99% accuracy rate, Mercans empowers businesses to navigate payroll processing seamlessly, ensuring punctual and precise payments while mitigating compliance risks. Let’s delve into the key stages of the payroll cycle:

Cut-off Date

The initial phase involves setting a cut-off date, which marks the deadline for incorporating changes in employee data, salary structures, and other payroll-related information for the upcoming payroll cycle.

Data Collection

Following the cut-off date, all relevant data, including working hours, overtime, bonuses, and deductions, is meticulously collected and verified.

Calculation and Verification

Mercans’ advanced payroll software calculates salaries, taxes, and social security contributions, ensuring compliance with Turkish labor laws and tax regulations. This stage also involves cross-checking for errors and discrepancies.

Sign-off Date

Once the calculations are accurate and verified, the payroll is ready for sign-off. This date signifies the point at which the payroll is considered final and ready for processing.

Payment Processing

After the sign-off, the actual disbursement process begins. Employee salaries, tax deductions, and social security contributions are processed, and payments are made through the designated payroll accounts.


Mercans generates comprehensive payroll reports, including tax and social security reports, ensuring full transparency and adherence to regulatory requirements.

Compliance Checks

Regular compliance checks are conducted to ensure that all payroll-related activities are in line with Turkish labor laws and tax regulations.

Final Processing Date

The final processing date signifies the completion of the payroll cycle for a specific period. All payments, deductions, and reporting are finalized, setting the stage for the next cycle.

Mercans’ expertise ensures that these critical payroll processing timelines are adhered to with precision, allowing businesses to maintain compliance and uphold payroll accuracy in Turkey’s intricate regulatory landscape.

Payroll Administration in Turkey

Payroll administration in Turkey involves a range of critical responsibilities, each contributing to the efficient management of employee records, adherence to labor and tax regulations, and the seamless calculation of benefits and taxes. Mercans, a renowned provider of specialized payroll administration services, boasts a remarkable 95% customer satisfaction rate. This highlights Mercans’ commitment to simplifying the complexities of payroll administration in Turkey, maintaining impeccable records, upholding Turkish labor laws, and ensuring precise tax calculations. An important key aspect is:

Employee Fixed and Variable Transactions:

In Turkey, employee fixed and variable transactions refer to the financial components of an employee’s compensation that may include both consistent, fixed elements (such as base salary) and dynamic, variable elements (such as bonuses, overtime, or deductions) within their payroll. These transactions encompass the regular payments and changes in pay that employees receive, making them an essential aspect of payroll management.

For payroll transactions involving changes to employee variable data, Mercans simplifies the process. We offer a single standard input template for amount-based changes, while separate forms are available for unit-based changes (e.g., hours, days). Pay elements representing variable data, such as overtime and bonuses, are pre-defined during setup. Clients can also add one-time pay elements later. Changes in variable employee data include the pay element code, values, and the effective date.

Common variable data changes encompass overtime, bonuses, premium pay (for shifts, weekends, and holidays), reimbursements, deductions (e.g., garnishment, alimony, pension), pay element adjustments, and one-time or periodic payments/deductions for with-balance elements (e.g., loans). Overtime and premium pay are available to all employees, with specific entitlement rules.

Our Responsibility Matrix for Variable Data Changes (Existing Employees):

  • Identify additional payments and deductions.
  • Internally approve transactions.
  • Complete the variable data changes input template.
  • Dispatch the template to Mercans by the specified deadline.
  • Mercans validates the request and processes it in the system.
  • Conduct internal controls (finance, accounting, HR, etc.).
  • Archive records for reference.

Here’s a closer look at the key sub-sections of payroll administration:

  • Maintenance of Client Master Data: Employee fixed transactions cover activities like new hires, departures, and employment changes, while variable data includes elements like overtime, incentives, unpaid work, and deductions. Accurate client master data maintenance is vital for seamless payroll administration, encompassing employee details, organizational structures, and compliance requirements.
  • Changes in Fixed Employee Transactions: It refers to modifications in employee statuses, roles, or conditions, encompassing activities like new hires, departures, and adjustments in employment terms. This process ensures accurate records and organizational compliance.
  • Variable Transactions: Variable Transactions in Turkey encompass dynamic elements like overtime, bonuses, premium pay, reimbursements, deductions, and one-time or periodic payments, ensuring financial accuracy and regulatory compliance.
  • Emergency Cases/Exceptions: Managing unforeseen situations and exceptional circumstances in payroll, like handling salary advances or one-time payments, demands agile and accurate adjustments to maintain financial integrity.
  • Starters/New Employees: Bringing aboard new employees in Turkey involves meticulous documentation and strict adherence to labor and tax regulations, ensuring a seamless integration into the payroll system while staying compliant with local laws.
  • Leavers: Properly addressing employee departures in Turkey entails thorough management of final settlements and strict adherence to exit procedures, safeguarding the precision of payroll administration and compliance with Turkish employment regulations.
  • Absence Recording for Paid Absences: Comprehensive recording of paid absences, such as sick leave and vacation days, is essential in Turkey to ensure employees receive fair and accurate compensation, aligning with labor laws and company policies.

Payroll Parameters in Turkey

Payroll processing in Turkey involves juggling a complex set of payroll parameters that can make or break compliance and accuracy. Keeping a keen eye on these parameters is paramount for businesses to ensure precise payroll calculations and remain compliant with local regulations. Mercans, your trusted partner in global payroll solutions, equips you with an in-depth understanding of these Turkish payroll parameters, ensuring your payroll operations are always on point and in line with the law. Here are the eight crucial payroll parameters in Turkey:

  • Gross Salary Gross salary in Turkey refers to an employee’s total earnings before any deductions, including taxes and social security contributions. It includes the base salary, overtime pay, bonuses, and any other forms of compensation. The gross salary serves as the starting point for all payroll calculations.
  • Net Salary Net salary represents the amount an employee receives after all deductions have been subtracted from the gross salary. Deductions typically include income tax, social security contributions, and other mandatory withholdings. It’s the actual amount that employees take home.
  • Employer’s Cost The employer’s cost includes not only the employee’s gross salary but also the additional expenses incurred by the employer, such as social security premiums and other contributions. These costs can vary based on the employee’s salary and the nature of their employment.
  • Income Tax Income tax in Turkey is progressive, with rates ranging from 15% to 35%. The tax rate is determined based on the employee’s income level. There are also various deductions and exemptions available, such as those for dependents or specific types of income.
  • Stamp Tax Stamp tax in Turkey is typically applied to various documents, including employment contracts. The rate can vary depending on the type of document and its value. For employment contracts, the stamp tax rate is generally 0.948% of the annual gross salary.
  • Disablement Deduction Turkey offers a disablement deduction for employees with disabilities. The amount of the deduction depends on the degree of disability and other factors. It is subtracted from the taxable income, reducing the employee’s income tax liability.
  • Social Security Premium and Insurance In Turkey, both employees and employers are required to contribute to the social security system. The employee’s share is typically around 14% of their gross salary, while the employer’s share is approximately 20.5%. These percentages can vary slightly depending on the type of insurance and the employee’s specific situation.
  • Exempt Allowances Some allowances, such as meal and transportation allowances, may not be subject to social security or income tax in Turkey. The exact treatment of these allowances can vary, so it’s essential to understand the specific rules governing each type of allowance.

Payroll Taxes in Turkey

In Turkey, payroll taxes are a multifaceted landscape comprising four distinct tax types, each with its own set of percentages and regulations. Accurate compliance with these tax regulations is not just essential; it’s a legal mandate to prevent potential legal consequences and financial penalties.

Here are the four prominent tax types you need to navigate in Turkey:

  • Corporate Income Tax Turkish corporations are subject to corporate income tax, which is calculated based on their annual profits. The standard corporate income tax rate is 20%, although certain conditions may apply that result in different rates for various business activities.
  • Sales Tax Sales tax, often referred to as “Katma Değer Vergisi” (KDV) in Turkish, is a value-added tax applied to the sale of goods and services. The standard rate for sales tax is 18%, with reduced rates of 1% and 8% applicable to specific items.
  • Value Added Tax (VAT) VAT is a broad-based consumption tax imposed on goods and services at various rates. The standard VAT rate is 18%, but reduced rates of 1%, 8%, and 5% are applied to specific goods and services, depending on their nature.
  • Personal Income Tax Employees in Turkey are subject to personal income tax, which is deducted at source from their monthly salaries. The tax rates are progressive, with various brackets ranging from 15% to 35%, depending on the individual’s income.
Navigating these tax types and their associated percentages can be complex, but with Mercans as your partner, you gain access to expert guidance on payroll tax compliance. We specialize in helping businesses understand and adhere to Turkish tax laws, ensuring precise tax calculations and reporting.

With an impressive 96% accuracy rate, Mercans minimizes compliance risks, promotes employee trust, and enables businesses to focus on their core operations.

Payslip Generation

In Turkey, it’s a legal mandate to provide employees with payslips. Mercans streamlines this requirement by offering digital payslips upon receiving written consent from employees. This digital solution enhances transparency and accessibility, simplifying the payroll process for employers and employees alike. Additionally, Turkish law requires employers to retain payroll data for a period of 10 years, a regulation that Mercans diligently follows

Payroll Reporting

In Turkey, income tax is applied annually, with employers required to deduct it from employee salaries and wages. These withholding taxes must be reported by the 23rd and paid by the 26th of the following month. The annual income tax return is due by March 25th of the subsequent year.

Employers also contribute the full declared amount to the Social Security Corporation every month. For employees under Article 4 (4) of Law No. 5510, premiums are deducted monthly, including the employer’s share, and must be submitted by the end of the month. If the payment date falls on a public holiday, it is extended to the next business day.

For instance, premiums for June 2020 must be paid by July 31st, 2020. The insured and premium service declaration, containing details of the employee’s income and service, is issued by the authorized tax office no later than 23:59 on the 23rd day of the following month.

In addition, the following notification must be made to SSI in time;

  • Full wage of employee,
  • Starting or leaving of an employee,
  • Missing days of employee should be declared by monthly premium and service document,
  • Employee who receive temporary disability allowance from SSI should be notified in certain periods determined by law,
  • Social Security premiums should be paid on time.
