Turkey’s E-Transformation Solutions and Benefits

The journey of e-transformation and tax digitization for companies in Turkey began in 2012 with the e-ledger application being made compulsory for multiple sectors.  

Over the years, the scope of e-transformation has expanded to include different e-documents. Compulsory e-document use was further expanded in terms of both application and taxpayers with the General Communique No. 509 published by the Turkish Revenue Administration (TRA) on October 19, 2019. And so 2020 became the year of e-transformation in Turkey. In 2021, with the effect of various regulations, the number of companies entering the e-transformation process has further increased. 

In addition to the solutions provided to switch companies to compulsory e-document use, e-transformation applications provide many advantages for companies. Benefits include:
