Türkiye Hikes VAT Rates for Goods and Services

Türkiye Hikes VAT Rates for Goods and Services

The Turkish government recently published an urgent change in Turkey’s Value Added Tax (VAT) rates.

The standard VAT rate will increase from 18% to 20% and the reduced VAT rate from 8% to 10% effective from 10th of July 2023.


Given the urgency of these changes, we recommend you review any financial or operational procedures impacted by these new VAT rates as quickly as possible. The increased VAT rates will be effective in only three days, leaving businesses with a very short window to update the Turkish VAT rates in the systems they use to calculate tax.
