Are there any restrictions on exporting aerospace goods to Turkey

Question

We have an opportunity to supply a Turkish organisation with a significant amount of tooling which will later be used to produced parts to manufacture a helicopter.

Are there any restrictions / export licenses required etc?
As Turkey is not a full member of the EU, is VAT chargeable and recoverable by the Turkish company?

Answer

Hi Emma
Can’t answer the issue re restrictions/export licences, but my understanding re the VAT is that Turkey is outside the scope of UK VAT, and therefore not chargeable providing you have proof of the client being based in Turkey (e.g. a valid tax number). Please note that I don’t claim professional expertese in this area, and you should confirm any specific requirements with your accountant or other competent specialist. Of course if you need lots of technical manuals translated into Turkish let us know!
Hope this helps
Regards Mike
