Benefiting From Retrospective SSI Incentives

Benefiting From Retrospective SSI Incentives

In the General Assembly, the Article 17 of the "Draft Omnibus Bill" on Law on Making Amendments on Certain Laws has been approved on the date 21.03.2018.

In addition The Omnibus Bill Law on the retrospective benefits from the incentives and relevant supports have been approved and announced on the 30373 numbered Official Gazette dated 27.03. The relevant law will be applicable following the month of acceptance, in other words will be applicable as of May 1, 2018 and will be valid until the end of May 2018.

Within the one-month period as of the announcement date on the Gazette, the workplaces that do not apply for the relevant incentive benefits, will lose the right to obtain the retrospective incentives. There is a foreseen excessive workload on the SSI systems and this might lead to issues with submitting declarations along with heavy trafficing on the systems. Therefore, it is crucial for the workplaces to identify the retrospective incentives that can be benefited, at the soonest.

It is very likely to have high value of incentive to be earned within the scope of this application, in relation to the headcount level of the workplaces. The full Article announced on the Official Gazette can be located below to this informative legislation.
