Local Tax Affairs

When you come to Turkey, applying for a tax number is one of the first things recommended to do. Regardless if you plan to remain here permanently, it still proves to be useful for many reasons; if you wish to have to apply for a e-ikamet (Residence Permit), sign up for a phone contract, open a bank account, start a business, or have utility bills in your name. For any of the above and many more, you will require a tax number.

If you plan on applying for your E-ikamet (Residence Permit) you will need to provide a tax number, along with other documents and biometric photos. We can help you obtain your tax number with a Same Day service, where our trained professionals do all the hard work for you.

The purpose of the tax number is often misinterpreted; it does not mean you will be required to start paying taxes in Turkey. Rather, it is an equivalent to a ‘national number’ or a ‘national identification number’. Your tax number will be assigned to you immediately and with our help, it will be a smooth, straight forward experience.
