How do I get VAT exemption when buying a property in Turkey?

VAT or KDV as symbolized in Turkey by its full name (Katma Değer Vergisi) is a tax levied in varying proportions on all products in Turkey, the VAT rate varies according to the product, ranging between 3 segments, 1%, 8% or 18%.
VAT is levied on properties in According to several factors, including the price per square meter of the property specified in the title deed, and the right of tax is established when selling the property, i.e.the seller is obliged to determine the price of the property plus VAT, knowing that properties with a net area of more than 150 square meters apply the tax at a maximum of 18%.
To attract foreign investment, the Turkish government has abolished the value tax on real estate sales to foreigners and Turkish citizens living abroad for more than 6 months, under certain conditions that must be achieved to benefit from the exemption.

Conditions for exempting a property from VAT in accordance with Turkish law:

The law requires several conditions that must be met for the property to be exempted from VAT, as these conditions are divided into conditions that must be met in the property sold, conditions relating to the person of the buyer, and general conditions.

♦ Conditions to be met with the property:

1 - The property must be a residence or workplace (commercial), and therefore the exemption does not include farmlands or lands not intended for construction.

2 - Real estate benefits only in the first sale after construction, i.e., real estate purchased directly from construction companies. The property is therefore not exempt from VAT in the following sales.

3 - The property must be ready for delivery, with a building permit or a Floor Easement Deed.

♦ Conditions to be met by the buyer's person:

1 - If the buyer of the property is a Turkish citizen, a residence permit and work outside Turkey must be established for at least 6 months.

2 - If the buyer of the property is a foreign person (a natural person), he or she must not be residing in Turkey where he is required to produce a "non-resident document" issued by the governor.

3 - If the buyer of the property is a foreign person (legal person), he or she must not have a permanent representative in Turkey.

♦ General conditions:

1 - Bank transfer receipt (Dekont) proves that the price of the property has been transferred to Turkish banks, and that payment is made in foreign currency.

2 - Pledge not to sell the property for a year starting from the date of the transfer of ownership in Tabu.

3 - The property must have been purchased after April 1, 2017, and if the purchase is made before that date, the exemption may be used if a title deed is issued for the tabu after that date.

 

Note: There is a common misinformation that a foreigner benefits from exemption only for the first property he has purchased, which is not true. The exemption can be used for more than one property if the above-mentioned conditions are met.

Most important highways of Istanbul

In recent years Turkey went through an economic boom which Istanbul got a big share of it. With an increase of tourists, residents, and investors the city continued to grow. This influx of new commers has increased the population of the city and resulting in Istanbul becoming the most densely populated Municipality of Turkey. Therefor it is only normal for it to have the most important highways and roads in the country.

Of all the roads and highways four are the most famous and important.

♦ D-100 Highway (E5 Highway):

The D-100 highway or as it is known among people as the E5 highway. It is considered the most well-known road in Istanbul as it links the two sides of the city from the European side to the Asian one through the Metrobus line that runs from Büyükçekmece to Söğütlüçeşme on a total length of 52 km and crossing the 15 July Martyrs bridge. It plays a main role in reducing the traffic congestion.

This highway starts at the Bulgarian gate “Kapikule” and crosses Turkey from west to east to the Iranian border gate “Gurbulak” with a total length of 1824 km.

 

♦ E-80 Highway (TEM Highway):

Opened in 1977 and considered one of the longest highways in the word with a total length of 6960 km (inside Turkey). This highway crosses 10 countries starting in the Portuguese capital Lisbon passing through Istanbul in Turkey and ends in Iran in Bazargan.

It links the Asian and European sides of Istanbul through the Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge.

 

♦ Bassin Express Highway:

This is considered the most important highway in Istanbul; it intersects in two points with the other two main highways of Istanbul the E5 and the TEM highway. It is the main road that connects the Istanbul International Airport to the rest of the city. But other than that, its importance is in its location. It is located in the Bassin Express district the commercial heart of Istanbul according to the strategic plan of the municipality.

 

♦ Kuzey Marmara Highway (The North Marmara Motorway):

The 400 kilometres long highway starts in the west of Istanbul in Kinali and crosses the city until reaching the eastern province of Sakarya and passing through the Yavuz Sultan Selim bridge. The North Marmara Motorway is the most important road for Istanbul Airport, one of the world's largest airports as it provides direct access to it. This highway represents an alternative transit route that bypasses the metropolis’ traffic-filled streets, as it will reduce the traffic burden in the country’s largest city and its surroundings.

 

Why live near a highway or main road?

It is very beneficial to buy properties that are close to main roads and highways. There are always new projects coming up that can present a valuable investment opportunity. Furthermore, closeness to highways and main roads will always guarantee you easy renting and re-selling as these kinds of properties are always in high demand. Another huge advantage is easy access to everything you mind need such as universities, hospitals, shopping centers and many other necessities.

What does 1+1, 2+1, 3+1 and 4+1 mean in Turkish Real estate ?

It’s always been asked, especially by foreigners who want to buy apartments in Turkey, about common symbols used to denote the number of rooms in the apartment. These numbers are well known in the Turkish real estate market and among Turkish citizens, but they may be somewhat strange for foreigners, as we mentioned.

For example, for three-room houses, the expression 2 + 1 is used, so what does it mean? This means that this house has two bedrooms and a living room "salon". Of course, these numbers do not include spaces such as the bathroom, balcony, and garden, if any.

These numbers are one of the basic features of the apartment, and one of the first things to ask about when buying or renting alike.

Considering the foregoing, the most common room distribution in Turkey is as follows:

   ♦ 1 + 1 apartments: they consist of a bedroom + living room "salon", and mostly in this model the kitchen is American style (open to the living room).

   ♦ 2+1 apartments: it consists of two bedrooms (parents' room and children's room) + salon. The kitchen can be open to the salon or separate according to the metric area of ​​the apartment.

   ♦ 3 + 1 apartments: they consist of 3 bedrooms (one for the parents, and two for the children) + a salon, and most likely they have a separate kitchen and a balcony.

   ♦ 4+1 apartments: it consists of 4 rooms (all of them may be used for sleeping or one of the rooms may be used to receive guests independent of the living room) + salon, and this type most definitely has a          kitchen that is separate from the living room.

   ♦ 5+1 apartments: consisting of 5 rooms (often one of them is a guest room, in addition to a bedroom for guests, and this is according to the apartment residents and their preference on how to distribute the rooms) + a salon, this type of apartment is often on the ground floors where a garden or a private terrace is attached to it. .

These types that we mentioned are the most common in Turkish residential apartments, and certainly there may be apartments with more rooms than what we mentioned, but they are often duplexes, and also, we do not forget to mention the one-room apartments "studio", which is symbolized by 0 + 1.
