ISTANBUL (Reuters) – President Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling AK Party presented a bill to parliament on Friday proposing to raise corporate income tax in Turkey from 20% to 23% in 2022 to 25% this year.
The draft also includes support for restaurant and cafe workers in April and May after new restrictions were put in place to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
