Our Employer of Record in Turkey solutions aid in your expansion into this country’s varied business landscape. Turkey is recognized as a prime business destination for service and industrial sectors with equal opportunities for domestic and overseas companies, making it a preferred area for business development.

Despite Turkey’s business and economic system being attractive for growing companies, adhering to the country’s labor laws can be challenging. These laws include:

  • Providing employees with a written employment agreement
  • Limiting the work week to 45 hours with a maximum of 11 working hours per day
  • Allowing for a maximum of 7.5 hours for a night shift and only one night shift per week
  • Granting employees leave for various national holidays such as Feast of Ramadan, Feast of Sacrifice, and Victory Day
  • Requiring both employers and employees to contribute to the Social Security Institution of Turkey

In addition to the aforementioned employment regulations, establishing a subsidiary is a mandatory requirement for conducting business in Turkey, a process that is complicated, time-consuming, and costly. As your Employer of Record, we handle Turkish employment laws and visa prerequisites on your behalf. This enables you to focus on leveraging the benefits of Turkey’s growing business sector without the added pressure and complexities of establishing a legal entity.

What is an EOR Turkey ?

An Employer of Record in Turkey, sometimes referred to as a PEO, we hire employees on your behalf. While you retain responsibility for the day-to-day management of your employees, an EOR assumes the legal responsibility of employee management and HR when you’re hiring in Turkey. Essentially, an Employer of Record in Turkey will:

  • Assist with employment agreements
  • Comply with Turkish employment laws
  • Handle tax payments
  • Manage payroll
  • Organize employee benefits

Furthermore, an Employer of Record ensures that you can expand into Turkey without the need for a legal entity while ensuring compliance with Turkish employment laws.

Why do I need an Employer of Record in Turkey?

As with other countries, expanding into Turkey necessitates compliance with new labor laws specific to that country. Attempting to understand and adhere to these regulations can be resource-intensive, time-consuming, and costly. Additionally, acquiring a legal entity can be a complicated and lengthy process. As a result, unfamiliarity with Turkey’s procedures can cause expanding companies to risk non-compliance. This is where our Employer of Record services can help.

With our extensive experience and expertise in Turkish employment laws, we can save you time, money, and resources when expanding your business. This way, you can free yourself from the burden of employment laws while enjoying the benefits of Turkey’s expanding economy.
