Turkey-Standard rate applicable to e-publications

Under Turkish VAT law, electronic supplies of newspapers, magazines and books have been subject to a reduced rate of 1% or 8%. It has recently been announced that such supplies will now be subject to the standard rate of 18%.

Since January 2018, non-established suppliers making certain B2C digital supplies have been required to account for Turkish VAT on their suppliers, and such businesses should be aware of these changes.
