Import tariff

On 6 May 2015, the Turkish government decided to apply an import duty surcharge on furniture. The additional fees are 25 or 50 percent of the import value depending on the product. 

Additional duties are imposed collectively with the MFN import duty set by the Decree on Import Regime. Notably, Turkey’s FTA partners and EU countries are exempt from additional duties.

On 21 April 2020, the government of Turkey temporarily increased the additional duties (see related state act).
