  1. Hello Ken, A big thank you for your complete answer. It helped me a lot to understand my probable situation as an expat in Turkey. Cheers! Iman
  2. Thank you Ken for answering my questions quickly. My case is that I'm a web developer and I'm working as a freelancer. I don't work for a specific employer and I don't get a regular salary. I get different projects from different clients who live around the world and since I'm going to move to Turkey, I'm looking to ask them to pay to my bank account in Turkey; once I opened it. Currently, they all pay me personally. So, as I understood from your reply, since I'm not going to work directly with Turkish businesses or people, I don't need a work permit. Meanwhile my tax home will become Turkey. So, It looks that I'm going to make money in Turkey. Should I pay taxes for it? Is it possible to pay taxes without having a work permit or establishing a company in Turkey? It's going to get complicated and I want it to be completely legal. I would appreciate if you could help me on this. Thank you!
  3. Hello, I'm planning to move to Alanya. I'm a freelancer and I'm not going to sell products or services inside Turkey or to Turks. However, I want to open a bank account in Turkey and my income will be deposited to this bank account. Also, I'm going to buy a property in order to be able to get a residency permit. My question is that should I register a company in Turkey in order to do my freelance job; considering that my income will be deposited to my Turkish bank account? Or are there any other better solutions to get a work permit as a foreigner with such situations in Turkey? Thank you! Iman
