An increase was made in the base amount slices, which are the basis for the special consumption tax (SCT) rate for mobile phones. According to the President's decision published in today's issue of the Official Gazette, an increase was made in the slices of the base amount, which is the basis for the SCT application on mobile phones.
Accordingly, this amount has been increased to 25 TL for mobile phones with a SCT base of 640 TL subject to a 1500% SCT rate. This amount has been changed from 40 TL to 640 thousand TL for mobile phones with a SCT tax base of 1500 percent from 1500 TL to 3 TL. No changes were made to mobile phone SCT rates.
With this regulation, the prices of phones that fall into the 3 lower SCT segments have been reduced due to the SCT base. No changes were made to the remaining models.
