‘New Economic Policy’ Statement by Minister Nabati

Regarding the new economic policy, Minister Nebati explained, “Our new economic policy aims to permanently solve all the structural problems of the Turkish economy. We are determined to solve the problem of the informal economy that causes unfair competition.”

Treasury and Finance Minister Nureddin Nebati commented on his social media account as follows:

Our new economic policy aims to permanently solve all the structural problems of the Turkish economy. We are determined to solve the problem of the informal economy that causes unfair competition.

By registering the informal economy, we will both increase the competitiveness of our businesses, increase our tax revenues, and thus make the social income distribution more equitable.

The announcement shared by Minister Nebati on his Twitter account is as follows:

In this process, where the e-commerce sector is growing rapidly in Turkey, as in the whole world, with the impact of the Kovid-19 epidemic, the financial control of commercial transactions realized through virtual trade markets is important.

By contributing to the healthy growth of the e-commerce sector, we examine and analyze in detail the tax losses that may occur as a result of the comprehensive studies carried out by our Risk Analysis General Directorate.

The business models that emerged with e-commerce, marketing strategies, are closely monitored with the RADAR system that we have established with an innovative infrastructure understanding.

In this way, 6 thousand taxpayers have been analyzed on the basis of their income, and field audits have been started for taxpayers who have partially or completely excluded their income.

We will increase the frequency and scale of these audits and closely monitor the financial and financial aspects of all industry data.

We closely monitor the tax liabilities of advertising revenues, live broadcast platform revenues, content production revenues, online game revenues, in short, social media revenues from social media.

To date, 65 thousand people have been analyzed as a result of the analyzes made on Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Bigo Live, Twitch, TikTok, Dlive and Scorp channels.

It was determined that 50 thousand people did not fulfill their tax obligations partially or completely over the income they obtained through social media.

In the first phase, field inspections were started for 3,500 people.

Social media revenues will be a topic that we will be watching more closely in the upcoming period in the fight against the burden of informality on our Treasury.

The rapid growth trend in the gaming technologies industry has also accelerated our fight against the informal economy.

All revenues based on players, tournaments, clubs and advertisements in the e-sports sector are closely monitored by the RADAR system.

In the analysis of 3 thousand people, which are within the scope of the studies carried out to date, action has been initiated for 588 people.

On the other hand, digital nomads, who earn income through remote working without spatial restrictions, are also closely followed by our Ministry in the fight against informality.

By our Risk Analysis General Directorate, freelance software developers, digital nomads providing services such as graphics and design were identified through intermediary platforms, and necessary actions were initiated.

It is announced to the public with respect.
