COVID-19 economic fallout puts back new tax implementation date
The Turkish government has pushed back again the introduction of its 2% Accommodation Tax. This will eventually be due on eligible supplies on a bi-monthly basis. It is charged in addition to VAT.
This covers the supply of accommodation services provided by hotels, motels, holiday camps, hostels, apart hotels, guesthouses, camping sites and mountain houses, as well as all other services provided in those accommodation facilities (such as food and beverage, activities, entertainment services, and the use of pools, sports, thermal pools and similar areas).
In May VAT rate cut on accommodation was extended until September 2021. This reduced the rate from 8% to 1%.
The current VAT rate in Turkey is 18%. There are reduced rates of 8% and 1%.
