Many investors and businessmen want to establish a company in Turkey from abroad to exploit the investment opportunities in Turkey, as the Turkish economy is one of the fastest-growing and stable economies in the light of difficult times. Besides, the Turkish government makes a great effort to attract businessmen from all around the world through laws and facilities in the interest of the investor.

Some nationalities face difficulties in obtaining a visa to Turkey, which leads them to establish a company and extract work residency in Turkey so that they can enter and exploit the investment opportunities that qualify them later to obtain Turkish citizenship.

Other investors also resort to establish a company in Turkey from abroad to save time.

Steps to establish a company in Turkey from abroad

First step

  •       Communicate with one of the specialists in OK TAMAM Group and determine the initial information of the company, including the name, the partners, the shares, the fields of activity of the company, and the company’s announced capital.
  •       Accordingly, the company’s article of incorporation will be prepared and submitted to the Chamber of Commerce.

The company’s article of incorporation is a document that includes a set of terms and conditions that are agreed by the founding partners to be submitted to the Chamber of Commerce to register the company and extract the commercial registry for it.

Second step

  •       Doing power of attorney (POA) for one of the investor representatives, or for one of the experts in OK TAMAM Group at the Turkish Embassy in the investor’s country, and sending the (original file) of the power of attorney (POA) to OK TAMAM Group address in Turkey to initiate the incorporation procedures.
  •       The power of attorney (POA) form will be sent to you by the specialist you communicate with at OK TAMAM Group.

The power of attorney (POA) is an official document that will be done at the notary or at the embassy of a certain country outside in which a specific entity or a person is authorized by another entity or another person to carry out specific procedures that are determined in the power of attorney (POA).

Third step

  •       After extracting the necessary documents from the Chamber of Commerce in Turkey, a copy of the documents will be sent to the investor by OK TAMAM Group to be submitted to the Turkish Embassy to do the authorization signature as a company owner and work, and another power of attorney (POA) for the chartered accountant (bookkeeper) in Turkey, which will be arranged by OK TAMAM Group and resend the (Original extracted files) to Turkey.

After all these procedures, your company will be officially registered in Turkey

Last step: Opening the company's bank account

The procedures for opening a bank account differ from one bank to another. Some banks can open a company account through the power of attorney (POA) and others require the personal presence of the investor.

Opening a bank account by power of attorney (POA)

  •         A power of attorney (POA) will be created in the investor’s country of residence that specifies opening the company’s bank account and will be sent to Turkey (the original file). 
  •         The bank account will be opened so that the investor can transfer the company’s announced capital in the company’s incorporation article.

Kuveyt Turk Bank or Al-Baraka Bank is one of the excellent banks that we recommend to foreign investors due to the availability of customer service in Arabic and English, which makes it easier for the investor to communicate with the bank.

Then OK TAMAM Group will start the procedures for applying to work residency (work permit) and send it to the investors so they can enter Turkey if the residency has been accepted by the Turkish government.
