The Commercial Register in Turkey

September 6, 2010, 4:34 pm

The Turkish Trade Registry is governed by the Turkish Chamber of Commerce and functions according to the Turkish Trade Law. The institution's main task is to record all amendments and to provide information and legality of the records. Also the Company Registrar in Turkey has to incorporate new businesses and manage the registration formalities of both Turkish and foreign companies. As a result of registration the institution has to issue registration certificates that ensure the actual functioning of the company. Also the register issues land registry certificates and other documents in conformity with the articles of association of the companies.

Turkish Registers and registry certificates are kept in an electronic database, available for searching. This database contains series of information of registered companies, including their names, registered addresses, shareholders, if it is the case, branches, social capital etc. The Turkish Commercial Register has a good relationship with other authorities and collaborates with them, offering valuable information, and also updating its own database using their authenticated data. In the near future Trade Register officials will introduce an electronic system which will enable registering through internet means.

The Trade Register incorporates companies with the Chamber of Commerce, which are obliged to be registered, also monitoring their activity. If any change in the registered data occurs, the Trade Registry must be notified. The changes include replacement of managing members, change of registered address, new object of activity etc. This procedure is done by filling an application with some required data and sending it to the registration office.

The Turkish Trade Registry has to maintain an open communication with the public, being obliged by law to issue authenticated copies of company documents. All these information are available to the public, by ordering certain information through the post mail, e-mail, or acquiring it at the registration office headquarters. Other important task of the institution is to organize prizes in categories of commercial and foreign exchange revenues, offering information on bank protocols etc.

The Turkish Commercial Register maintains the registration, formation and development of Turkish companies in legality, regulating their activities and ensuring a good communication with the public, putting at their disposal information on registration procedures, details of companies and offering valuable advice.

BridgeWest offers company formation in Turkey, including virtual office and other related services.
