Practicalities of going self-employed in Turkey

Is anyone registered/know the requirements to be registered as self-employed in Turkey?

Having re-located here last year with my company, I have just been served redundancy notice and, whilst the company will pay to repatriate us to the UK, we would prefer to remain here.

I have a 5 year residency permit (wife is Turkish) and have just started the process for citizenship but I believe to complete that process, I would need to demonstrate sufficient funds to support us.

Re: Practicalities of going self-employed

You have been here for 5 years and you are married to a Turk.
Get Citizenship!!! IF, if you do this the right way you can become a citizen very fast===say 3 months.
You do not need to show a tapu or bank account,etc... Get a
The big secret!!! You and your wife go to a Noter and get a Taahhütname.
This means she covers/looks after your basic needs to live.
Trust me, this is the way to go for you.
You could undergo some bumps such as Apostles (this is international agreements that for the life of me I can't understand the Turkish bureaucracy requires or understands) for birth cert. divorce from your home country.
2nd secret: Find a congressman or governor to help out. They will give great promises but in the end just have them write a letter of reference for you and attach it to your file/application for when it goes to Ankara.
Trust me on these 2 facts. I have been here full time for over 14 years. I filed for vatandaşlik as a single (madde 11) and spent some 30,000 lira and 6 years and 4 times trying. I finally have citizenship as of a few months before. The last time I sent it in, it only took just say 3 months.
PLEASE do things right. If you can find a takipçi/follow up person for this please pay them for your paperwork etc... At the Nüfüs office make a good friend and don't be afraid to go directly to their müdür and have a tea.
Above all, FOLLOW UP all the time. Be a pest to everyone.
Some people just wait and their paperwork has a problem. Waiting is a HUGE mistake. *I never did but still, for me it was a complete horror story.
....Note: my first time I went through this process where there is no other yabancilar. On the black sea for example be careful to get counsel and push push push. Don't trust anyone with a %99 answer.
Please feel free to PM me and give your tele and I'll call you.
Ne mütlü türküm diyene. For me, 6 years and 30,000 lira was terrible but...
My stories of passing the Turkish speaking/reading tests etc.. are funny.
For example, I went through 4 turkish tests. One was 2 hours because I was their first applicant.
Ben ABD birisiyim. I hope this helped you. Go for it! Without vatandaşlık you will always suffer with doing business, etc...

As Norman has pointed out, I've only been here for 1 year so far, however, your info is very helpful and much appreciated.

Re: Practicalities of going self-employed

He is married to a Turk so if he is married for 3 years he can apply for vatandaşlık. His requirements are basically met.
As far as the FIRST 2 hour turkish language test..... I was in a place where they had never given this before and they did not know what to do.
They did find a solution of where to give this test and it was at a local school
where they arranged 5 teachers to test me.
They first talked to me at great length, then they made me read a newspaper, then they made me write a story about my life.
After about 1 hour 50 minutes I made a small mistake like miş or dir to a verb and one of the teachers said ''ah ah'' meaning you made a mistake.
I stood up and said "this is enough of this B.S.. In Mugla for example, people can't even order food and you are grilling me like a steak". There was and English teacher there and she said "actually, he has correctly said this miş or minor mistake and you are wrong''.
.....I have also been through the Turkish speaking/writing process in Antalya 3 times and of course easily passed. Yani, easily after my first experience some 6 years before.
Does that satisfy your comment?
