  • HOW TO CLAIM REFUNDS FOR OVERCHARGED IMPORT TAXES DUE TO SURVEILLANCE CERTIFICATE REQUIREMENTS

    Ministry of Economy determines certain minimum thresholds for certain products in order to force the exporters to pay higher taxes on the products in customs. In this respect, the Ministry determines the minimum value threshold per each kilogram of the imported product and sets forth that any exports into Turkey that does not meet this minimum value threshold shall be required to obtain a surveillance certificate from the Ministry. This is mainly implemented for tax purposes and to protect the local producers in Turkey. Based on new precedent, it is now possible to reclaim such overpaid tax and expenses.
