US PEO Services | Native Teams

Turkey EOR Services

Native Teams simplifies the process of hiring employees in Turkey by taking care of local laws, tax frameworks, and international payroll management.

Why use an employer of record services in Turkey?

Normally, companies are required to set up a legal entity if they want to hire workers in Turkey. This requires registering an address, finding an office and opening a local bank account. All of this plus complying with local regulations, payroll, tax and benefits can be a time-consuming process that can take several months.

By partnering with an Employer of Record (EOR) service provider like Native Teams, businesses can operate in Turkey without establishing a legal entity, thereby saving valuable time and resources. Additionally, this approach ensures compliance with all employment laws and regulations.

How do EOR services in Turkey work?

When you hire your new employee through our EOR, the employment will be jointly shared between you, the business owner, and us, Native Teams.

You will retain essential management control over the work performed by your employees and day-to-day activities, while we (Native Teams) will take on the responsibility of being the legal employer. Your primary responsibility will be to issue a payment to the leasing company to cover payroll, taxes, benefits, and administrative fees, while we’ll handle everything else.

How PEO Works

Requirements for employment in Turkey

Legal and tax requirements for employment in Turkey include:

Work permit

Foreign nationals are required to obtain a work permit before they can work legally in Turkey. The work permit is issued by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security and is valid for one year.

Residence permit

Foreign nationals who intend to work in Turkey for more than 90 days must obtain a residence permit. This permit allows them to reside in Turkey and work legally.

Social security

Employers are required to register their employees with the Social Security Institution (SGK) and pay contributions on their behalf. Employees also make contributions towards their social security.

Income tax

Employees are subject to income tax on their salary. The income tax rate varies depending on the level of income.

Labour laws

Employers must comply with the Turkish Labour Law, which sets out the rights and obligations of both employers and employees. This law covers areas such as working hours, overtime, leave entitlements, and termination of employment.

Employment contract

Employers are required to provide a written employment contract to their employees. The contract must include details such as the job description, salary, working hours, and termination provisions.

Please note that all these requirements may vary depending on the job type, the employer and individual circumstances.
