Value Added Tax VAT Or KDV In Turkey and Payroll Turkey


Before joining a Payroll Turkey company you need to know some important thing regarding taxation in this country.

The value added tax VAT, called in Turkish « KDV », is an indirect tax on consumption, it is a tax instituted in principle by Law No. 3065 in 1984. Although businesses pay this tax based on their sales profits, this tax is mainly deducted from the end consumers of the goods, that is, it is collected from the people who consume the goods. The tax applies in almost all countries of the world and is imposed in Turkey according to the importance of goods consumed according to three ratios: 1%, 8% and 18%.


Calculation of VAT or KDV in Turkey :


The VAT or KDV is calculated by subtracting the tax rates from the sales prices of the products. Consequently, the tax increases according to the high prices of the sale of the products, from the exit of the product to the consumer.

KDV calculation (included)

The simplest way to calculate value added tax is as follows: product price x 1 + tax rate. For example, the price of the product is 1,000 pounds and the tax rate is 18%, so the calculation is as follows:

1000x (1 + 0.18) = 1000x 1.18 = 1180 pounds.

To calculate the KDV not included, simply replace the multiplication process by dividing. That is to say, the price of the product ÷ (1 + tax rate).

For example, the product price after tax deduction is 1180 pounds and the tax rate is 18%. The calculation is therefore as follows:

1180 ÷ (1+ 0.18) = 1180 ÷ 1.18 = 1000 pounds → the price of the product before tax (before tax deduction).

KDV rate by product:
