Re: customs agent needed izmir

We used this company (though it was 7 years ago)

:: SOYER ::

Tax will depend on what's inside. You should have a detailed list of items, but your custom agent should explain this to you.

There are certain household items which don't incur tax, duplicate electricals or TV's over a certain size attract a percentage of purchase cost of the same item in Turkey (I think it's something between 17 - 20 %)

I used to have a list of items you're legally aloud to bring in without being taxed but I cant find it now.

You'll need residency/turkish citizenship to clear the items, also I think after 5 years you can claim the tax back (either all or a %)

Ask your customs agent about this.

Good luck,

Charlotte

And of course do not forget the (special) port tax that you do not get a receipt for!,
ours was about £400.
We used soyer, quiet good.

Republic of Turkey Prime Ministry Undersecretariat of Customs

Try the above government website, it shows you what is and what isn't allowed to be brought into the country tax free.

Hi Alison

I discovered this info a few months ago when checking about bringing my Household items over....

From November 12th 2009 the importation rules for household effects will change.

There will no longer be a "Temporary Import" rule (Gecici Kabul) and a need to leave a security deposit etc.

The only tax now payable is the TRT bandrola tax for TVs, radios and other equipment capable of receiving TV and radio waves.

Documents needed for import are now as follows:
Residence permit
Passport
Lease or Tapu (rental leases must be for at least 24 months).


Hopefully this should save quite a bit of money.....

I was also given this guys details fro shipping it over and I've actually spoken with him over tel. speaks good English and seems very nice.... based in İzmir. he should be able to answer any questions......
