Increasing employment is a must to prevent the shrinkage in the economy. There are various government incentives that aim to support an increase in employment. These incentives can be regional or seasonal. Regional incentives vary based on the commercial needs of that particular province.
For example, incentives implemented in Istanbul – a high commercial population versus in Hakkari – a low commercial population will differ significantly. The news about the extension of regional incentives that stood out in the past few days was closely related to the provinces with low commercial population.
Earlier it had been announced that the 6-point regional incentive had ended on 31 December 2019. However, it was published in the Official Gazette dated 23 February 2020 that the 6-point regional incentive was extended until 31 December 2020 by the President’s decision.
In addition to the 5-point premium discount, 6-point premium discount is applied within the scope of the application. These calculations are all made based on the minimum wage.
