Open-a-HORECA-company-in-Turkey.jpgTourism is one of the most developed Turkish economic sectors. During the last several years, this industry has expanded a lot because of the new branches that have emerged. Among these, medical tourism is one of the most important.

Foreign investors who want to explore the tourism industry can set up one of the most profitable types of businesses: a HORECA company which is short for hotel, restaurant, café.

If you want to set up a HORECA business, you must comply with several laws which can be explained by our Turkish company formation advisors.

The best structure for a HORECA business in Turkey

The Turkish legislation provides for various types of structures which can be used for opening a company in Turkey, however for foreign investors the limited liability company is the most familiar. The same type of company is recommendable for a HORECA business because of the flexibility and limited responsibility it offers to its shareholders.

Our local agents can help you register a limited liability company in Turkey.

Legislation applied to HORECA companies in Turkey

Because through such type of business one can offer several services, the HORECA company will also be required to several laws. Among these are the Food Law and the Tourism Law. Also, the Turkish government has enabled the Law for the Encouragement of Tourism which provides for various incentives for those who open companies with activities in this industry, including HORECA businesses.

Foreign investors who open hotels in Turkey can also enter the Touristic Hotels and Investors Association through which they can promote their services.

Licenses for HORECA businesses in Turkey

Depending on the type of activities the Turkish company will undertake, it will be required to obtain various permits and licenses issued by the local authorities, including the Ministry for Tourism. Also, in the case of hotels, several certificates are available. These can increase clients’ confidence in the HORECA company.

In the case of Turkish restaurants and cafes, certain food licenses are required.
