Testimonial of an English HR manager who decided to go on Payroll Turkey contract solution.

Payroll Turkey contract : an effective solution with minimal risk taking

« I have been HR Manager for the Middle East for more than 5 years in a UK company which manufactures washing solutions. Our company is present in more than 5 countries in Middle East as well as Asia.

Since 2008 we’ve got distributors in Turkey. However, we do not currently have a local entity on site and a production plant. Last year, following the decision of my managers, my company decided to reinforce its investments in Turkey.

However, given our sales last year in this area, we want to take as few risks as possible. Opening an on-site subsidiary is a significant cost, not to mention the creation of a plant in this country. But we had to feed our relationship to distributors in Turkey. And maintaining an effective relationship is difficult from UK.

That is why the solution of Payroll Turkey contract seemed to us the most effective. At first it allowed us to explore and test local market as closely as possible, in a second time the risk taking is minimal or non-existent. In Payroll Turkey, what is commendable is the possibility of going directly through a local company that deals with the recruitment in Turkey of our staff on site.

This same company publishes his payslip (payment of his salary and other contributions). The cost ? The gross salary + Payroll Bonus. So last year we recruited an on-site salesman via a payroll company based in Istanbul. This same salesman working in home office, was responsible for maintaining relations with distributors in Turkey in addition to looking for new distributors. Our turnover in Turkey has increased by 20% via this Umbrella Company Turkey solution. And we are globally satisfied. The next step ? Creation of an on-site subsidiary in the coming years.

There is a good chance that our sales person will take care of the recruitment of the new employees, and become the director of the Turkey structure of our company. Payroll Turkey is therefore the best way to test your presence in this country without taking major risks. «
