Investors who open a company in Turkey need to register the new business entity at the Company Register in Turkey. There are Trade Registry Offices throughout the country which are managed by the Turkish Chamber of Commerce according to law.
Any company in Turkey must be registered at a Trade Registry Office in the city where the company is based. This is mandatory for all types of companies in Turkey, whether incorporated by foreign or local investors.
The Register keeps an updated situation for each recorded company. Changes in the administrative structure of the company and changes included in the Articles of Association must be submitted to the Register. This is done through an application submitted by the company representative. 

Public information about Turkish companies

If you are interested in finding out information or other details about companies incorporated in Turkey, you have to request them from the Trade Register. The database where you can find all necessary information about a company incorporated in Turkey is available to the public.
There is public information, in the database, about:
-    name of the company
-    address
-    shareholders
-    social capital etc.
In order to search the Trade Register in Istanbul, for example, the individual will need to know some basic information about the company according to which the search can be performed. Company search is available according to the registration number of the company, its NACE code, its name or the industry group.

Registering a company in Turkey

When making an application for registration with the Turkish Trade Registry Office the investor must submit the following documents:
- the registration form;
- notarized copies of the articles of association;
- copied of the incorporation notification form;
- proof that the initial share capital has been deposited;
- document attesting the persons authorized to represent the company;

These documents are necessary for opening a limited liability company in Turkey. If you need to set up other type of firm, you can contact our  company formation agents from Turkey.
