Turkey VAT on foreign B2C digital services

Sat 30th Dec 2017

Turkey is to require non-resident providers of digital services to VAT register and charge tax on sales to local consumers from 1 January 2018.

The new law was published by the Revenue Administration in General Communique No 17 to the VAT Law. It covers the following matters:

  • Definition of digital services
  • VAT return requirements – VAT return number 3
  • Reporting and invoicing requirements

The new law follows similar reforms in the EU in 2015, and other countries such as Taiwan, Russia and Australia.
