What are the Administrative Fines in case the Export Prices are not brought to the Country?


The procedures and principles regarding the repatriation of export prices are regulated by the communiqué regarding the decision no. 32 on the Protection of the Value of Turkish Currency. The fees related to the export transactions carried out in Turkey are transferred directly to the bank that mediates the export following the payment of the importer. The period of bringing the prices to the country cannot exceed 180 days from the actual issue date.


The export costs that are not brought in due time are notified in writing by the intermediary banks to the relevant Tax Office Directorate within 5 working days. Within 10 business days following the notification, a 90-day warning is sent to the relevant parties to ensure that the accounts are closed. During this period, the accounts must be closed or if there are force majeure conditions or the justified situation must be documented. In case of force majeure, additional time is given by the relevant Tax Office Presidency or Tax Office Directorate in six-month periods during the continuation of the force majeure.

For export accounts that are still not closed at the end of the 90-day warning period by the Tax Office Directorate, a notification is made to the Public Prosecutor's Office in order to initiate legal action.
