Taxation and Reporting System in Turkey
Reporting in Turkey, as well as taxation, is very complex because Turkish accounting is not
predominantly influenced by commercial law, but by tax regulations. Turkish accounting is thus
extremely formalistic, and the legal requirement to a quarterly reporting system, including the
balance sheets and profit and loss statements, leads to an enormous amount of work.
Our accounting services help you to prepare all necessary reports (e.g. company tax reports) as
required by the taxation and reporting system in Turkey. Apart from compiling reports for Turkish
authorities in Turkish, we can also prepare summaries for you in English.

Differences between Turkish accounting & IFRS / US GAAP
In Turkey, accounting standards are dominated much more by tax regulations than by commercial
standards. Hence, the focus is on ensuring accurate tax calculations rather than having useful data
that shows the full economic picture of the company. Furthermore, the rigid tax regulations exclude
many transactions either due to non-deductibility, insufficient documentation standard or for other
reasons which will, in contrast to IFRS and US GAAP standards, not show up in the accounting and
thus the full economic view of the company will be distorted.

The most important differences at a glance

Loss Statement, Statement of Changes in Equity, Cash Flow and Notes.
Preparation of limited scope, pro-forma financial statements under IFRS or US GAAP.
Preparation of management reports under IFRS and US GAAP.

GAAP or to your specific corporate reporting standards.
