Turkey: New tax regulation for e-commerce

The customs duty of goods to be shipped from non-EU countries has been increased by 10%. If the goods come from other countries, the specific tax to be paid has been increased from 20% to 30%.

The tax regulation applied to purchases made from e-commerce sites abroad has changed. While the tax rate has increased for some products, the scope of the taxed product has also expanded.


According to the President’s decision published in the Official Gazette, 18% tax will be charged if the product comes from the European Union countries in the internet shopping made by individuals under €150.

This limit was applied as €1,500 in the previous application.

If internet shopping is made from third countries such as China, the tax rate will be 30%. The tax on internet shopping from third countries was previously 20%.

An additional 20% tax will be charged if the SCT is included in the list numbered 4, such as perfume, caviar, fur, and electronic devices.

Companies will also be subject to the same tax rates for purchases under €22.

The tax limit for the purchase of drugs will be €1,500.

In the book section, there will be no tax on purchases up to €1,500.
