Online tax services
Taxpayers required to adapt to the Bookkeeping Declaration System should apply to the relevant tax offices or via the website, www.defterbeyan.gov. tr, by the last day of the month before the calendar year in which they will begin using the system. At the initial phase of the implementation, the date set for taxpayers subject to simple entry was postponed to September 30, 2018. Since any postponement does not exist for taxpayers with operating ledgers required to adapt the implementation on these dates, the deadline for application is December 31, 2018.
Taxpayers who have established liability for the first time after the start of the application have to apply within 7 working days following the start-up day.

Mob le appl cat on
The Administration has developed a mobile application for the Bookkeeping Declaration System. The application may be downloaded through Google Play and App Store by entering “Bookkeeping Declaration” into the search space and access to the system can be gained by mobile phones with your existing password.
Only the authorization for monitoring is permitted with the first version of the mobile application. Questions remain as to whether the Administration will enable the authority to make transactions in the mobile application or not.
The Bookkeeping Declaration System ensures the proper monitoring of taxation and business transactions in an electronic environment, reducing bureaucratic transactions and compliance costs, combatting the unregistered economy and tax compliance. With this system, taxpayers will not need any accounting program and will have the opportunity to access accounting records and tax returns online. Since paper books will not be used with the transition to the system, taxpayers will save costs such as stationery expenses, notarization expenses and expenses for the preservation of the books that are kept.
