Establishing a limited liability company

The limited liability company is the most used type of business in Turkey, mostly for small to medium sized businesses, because of a relatively easy registration process, low corporate taxes and a lot more advantages. A Limited Liability company is founded by at least 1 members, natural persons, or legal entities and they are held liable for the company’s losses and debts only to the extent of their contribution. The minimum required capital to open this type of company in Turkey is 10,000 TL, out of which 1/4 must be deposited upon the registration of the company. Limited companies cannot issue stock certificates.

Setting up a joint stock company

It’s a company designed for business at a larger scale and it is not as common as limited liability companies. Nevertheless a lot of Limited Companies evolve into joint stock companies, or become shareholders of one. A Joint Stock company must be established by at least 5 persons or legal entities and the minimum required capital is 50,000 TL (approx. 12,000 EUR). The shareholders liability is limited with the share capital. A Joint Stock company can issue stock certificates, unlike Limited companies.

Turkish Branch, Subsidiary or Representative Office

Any foreign company is able to set up branch entities in Turkey. These can be set up as separate entities from the parent company (Turkish companies having the foreign company as shareholder) or extensions of the parent-company in Turkey.
