On March 1, 2020, Law No. 7194 came into force in Turkey, according to which companies providing certain types of digital services must pay tax. The law spells out the conditions for taxing organizations. In particular, this payment is compulsory for companies receiving an international income of at least 750 million euros, of which 20 million lire (2.7 million euros) are received in Turkey.

The law also stipulates a list of digital services for which tax will be charged. In particular, it is required to pay companies that provide advertising services in the digital environment. We are talking about advertising management services, statistical products, user personal data management, etc. Also, a tax on digital services will be levied on organizations that provide technical services.
