Depending on the nature of your activity in Turkey, the type of structure that best suits your project on the Turkish market (liaison or representative office, subsidiary, branch), and the legal form of business in Turkey that you will choose (sole proprietorship, limited liability company, etc...), the administrative procedures and formalities for the formation of the company in Turkey may vary. Generally, the steps to create and register a company in Turkey are:

  • Choice of the legal form under Turkish law and the social capital
