Electronic notification addresses
The Law amending the Enforcement and Bankruptcy Law and Other Laws (the Amendment Law) was published in the Official Gazette on 15 March 2018 and entered into force on the same date.
Although the law introduced amendments to the Tax Procedural Law, the Cooperatives Law, the Customs Law and the Law on Fees, this update focuses on the amendments to the Notification Law.

As a result, each party will be entitled to receive only one electronic notification address. Electronic notification addresses must be submitted to the relevant authorities, which are entitled to make notifications under the Notification Law, following their receipt by the relevant real person or legal entity.
The relevant amendments introduced by the Amendment Law to the Notification Law will enter into force on 1 January 2019.
