A Turkish Limited Liability Company (LLC) needs to have an initial capitalization of 10.000.-TL (around 2,500.-USD) and 1 to 50 shareholders. A shareholder of an LLC has a partnership share calculated in accordance with the nominal value of capital subscribed to. In certain cases, the total share of each shareholder is regarded as one equity share, regardless of nominal value. Transfer of shares is subject to major restrictions in an LLC (such as approval by other shareholders representing 75% of the capital) and may be altogether restricted. Subject to the conditions prescribed in the Turkish Commercial Code and any conditions provided for in the Articles, it is possible to expel a shareholder, and a shareholder may also request from a court the dissolution of an LLC subject to certain conditions. As shares of an LLC is not represented by share certificates, share transfers are effected through registration of an executed and notarised sale and purchase agreement with the competent trade registry together with a shareholders’ decision approving such share transfer.
