Business Information

Increasingly, many businessmen are thinking about buying ready-made business abroad. There are very different reasons for this. Some want to make it easier for themselves to obtain a residence permit in a new country, and over time perhaps citizenship, others want a stable profitable business, while others simply expand their business, opening abroad branches or subsidiaries. Sometimes money is required to open business abroad much less, but, of course, information about doing business in the chosen country will need much more.

The topic is quite popular for foreigners - buying ready-made business in Turkey. Many people believe it is easier to buy a finished business than to open a new one. Foreign businessmen usually try to buy the same business in Turkey as they used to do in the homeland, because it is much easier, if you already understand all the technological nuances of your business, then you will remain, only to understand local peculiarities. One of the main features of doing business in Turkey – it is necessary to conduct it according to law and only by LAW. Working in Turkey by law is much more convenient, easier and more efficient. Of the indisputable advantages: ease of doing, as when opening a business, the foreigner gets the same rights as his Turkish colleague.

Turkey’s government is serious about foreign investment. There are many government programs for the development of small and medium-sized businesses. Small and medium-sized businesses in Turkey are understood to be an enterprise employing less than 250 employees and whose annual revenue is less than 25 million Turkish lira. For such companies there are various types of incentives: exemption from customs duties, exemption from VAT on equipment. In the same way, various special investment zones have been created to develop business in Turkey and attract foreign investors. Technological Development zones: 39 such TECHNOPARKS are planned to be opened, 27 of them are already in operation today. Free zones are specially allocated territories outside the customs zone in Turkey. These zones are designed to increase export-oriented investment. Organized industrial zones were also established to support and develop small and medium-sized businesses in Turkey. They are sector-based, territorial-industrial associations that comprise hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses operating in a specific area.

In these territories, by stimulating enterprises with tax incentives, as well as special conditions for lending by state banks.The purpose of the creation of Organized industrial zones is to unite small and medium-sized enterprises into powerful industrial complexes in one territory, to take existing production outside residential areas, to ensure their concentration in certain places.This policy allows the State to prevent and solve environmental problems by providing these zones with the necessary single treatment facilities and laboratories. Thus, the conditions of doing business in Turkey attract not only local businessmen, but also foreign entrepreneurs with many programs for the development of small and medium-sized businesses, the creation of special investment zones. The main rule is to observe the law of The Turkish State.
