Starting from 1st January 2018 withholding tax returns and SSI e-declarations will be combined in a single form under the name of "Withholding Tax and Monthly Premium Service Document” and submitted only to the tax offices until the 23rd of the following month.
Law No. 6740 had already stipulated that income tax withheld by employer and the SSI premiums should be declared in a single form, and now with the General Communique published in the Official Gazette No 29983, dated 18th Feb. 2017, the procedures and principles concerning implementation of the Law became clearer.
- General implementation will start on 1st January 2018
- The old passcodes given to workplaces and authorized intermediaries for the premium declarations by the SSI will not be valid after this Communique is entered into force.
- Employers are required to match-up their “Tax Identification Numbers” and “SSI Registration Numbers,” for once only, in the tax office’s website https://intvrg.gib.gov.tr/ electronically. Matching up must be completed until the end of March.
