Payroll in TurkeyUsing the services of an accounting firm to deal with Turkish payroll service is much more recommended than having a department in the company. Our specialists can offer you payroll services in Turkey if you have a company in this country.

What is payroll and when do you need it?

Payroll is a simple process by which the salaries of employees in a company are calculated. There are several departments that collaborate in this process, and here we mention human resources and finance. Here are some other interesting things:
  • Accounting specialists can handle payroll in Turkey. They have access to the list of employees and their remuneration.
  • Before paying the salaries, the taxes to be paid are calculated.
  • Accountants use a special program to calculate salaries. First of all, the company determines how this payment is made: monthly, bimonthly or weekly.
  • Standard payroll execution is approved by the company management.
  • The actual payment of salaries follows, after the taxes have been calculated, maternity leave where applicable, benefits, etc.
When paying salaries to employees, specialists have access to their bank accounts. However, attention is needed in the case of former employees, who should no longer be included in the list of active ones. You can find out more about payroll in Turkey from our company formation agents in Turkey.

Taxes paid by employees and employers in Turkey

When you start a business in Turkey, you need to consider the related fees. Here is what is paid to employees and employers:
  • Social security is 14% for the employer and between 15.5% and 20.5% for the employee.
  • Unemployment insurance means 1% from the employee, but also from the state, plus 2% from the employer.
  • In the case of maternity leave, women receive 2/3 of their daily earnings during the child's upbringing.
Once these taxes have been calculated, they actually switch to payroll in Turkey and more precisely to pay salaries in the company. You can discuss in detail about Turkish payroll service with one of our local agents.
