Opening a company in Turkey is an attractive goal for many foreign investors interested in doing business in this part of Europe, in a country that offers a good business environment. As a foreign entrepreneur, you may set up a company in one of the major cities in Turkey, such as: Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir or Antalya.
You don’t have to go there in person in order to register your company at the local Trade Register. Our agents in company formation offer you the possibility of incorporating a firm on behalf of you if you give them the power of attorney to represent you in front of the Turkish authorities.
One of the major cities in Turkey, where you can open a company, is Izmir, located in the western part of the country. Opening a company in Izmir lasts nearly seven days, after you submit the documents required by the Turkish authorities.
- articles of association (notarized);
- the prove for the payment of 0.04% of the share capital for the new company;
- the signatures of the directors and other persons authorized to represent the new company;
- the founders’ declaration;
- a certificate from the bank for the payment of the minimum capital share;
- photos of the founders of the company.
You can send us the documents necessary for opening a company and we will submit them to the local Trade Register in Izmir. Then, all you have to do is waiting for the decision of the Turkish authorities in order to start the activity of your new firm.
In Izmir, you may incorporate four major types of companies, also available in all major cities in Turkey:
- limited liability company;
- joint stock company;
- commandite company;
- collective company.
If you don’t know how to choose the right type of company for your business, you can ask our local specialists in company formation for professional advice. Most foreign investors choose the limited liability company, which is appropriate for small and medium businesses. The entrepreneurs who run large businesses prefer the joint stock company. No matter the type of company you choose to open in Izmir, our company formation team will help you with the registration procedure and all you need before starting the activity.
When you register a company in Izmir, you need a registered office and if you don’t know how to get one, you can ask us. We will offer you a solution tailored to your business needs, including a virtual office, if you don’t need a large office for your employees. One of the major advantages of getting a virtual office is that you will have a prestigious business address, an important detail for your future business partners.
We provide additional services for your virtual office:
- a local fax number;
- sending/receiving mails for your company;
- incoming/outgoing faxes;
