What To Consider When Investing In Tourism In Turkey?

We briefly explain these important points for you below.

Should The Company Be Taken Over Or Should A New Company Be Established In Tourism Invesment? Is It Better To Get A New License?

First of all, in this process, it is necessary to register the feelings of their company in order to purchase a ready-made business, it is faster and more affordable than registering a new company information and a new license. Although we provide services such as obtaining tourism certificates and related licenses on your behalf, we believe that the transfer of the company is more profitable for investors.

Can We Take Over Workers During The Takeover Of The Company? What Is The Need For Lodging?

It is possible to take over the workers of the companies you acquire by taking over their shares, by protecting their rights. For this, we can prepare all the legal grounds and ensure smooth transition of workers by reviewing their old contracts.

The biggest problem of regions where seasonal investments are generally made is the need for housing for workers. In investment areas, which are mostly holiday resorts, accommodation areas are limited and expensive during peak seasons. For this reason, it is vital for the sustainability of the investment that the business to be invested in has a lodging.
