You might think that there are a couple of options to boost your market presence in Turkey.
The basic option is to contract someone willing to work from home, and take care of their own tax and social security arrangements.
More prestigious is to set up a legally registered office, enabling you to have full control and recruit your local management fully compliant with local regulations and business law. We can help you with finding a reliable law firm and accountant, renting a suitable office, and with recruiting your local manager or team.
There is a middle way, however: your brand and our white-label office, ready to operate and recruit your manager or team. Any legal requirements and employment laws are taken care of, your office is ready to go with telephone and internet, and optional meeting space available when needed. With a prestigious Nisantasi address (the Kensington of Istanbul) and phone number, and our day-to-day support, the cost is reasonable and avoids the bureaucracy of setting up a full official office until you know the business is viable.

Case study: Dublin International Foundation College (DIFC)
DIFC provides foundation courses and Pre-Master programmes for international students progressing onto Higher Education in Ireland, the UK and (especially in the case of Medicine) globally.
Thanks to its contract with Levant Education, DIFC established a fully operational Regional Office in Istanbul, with network offices in Tehran and Baku. Sales and Marketing are led by the regional team, supplied by Levant Education. This way marketing, enquiries and enrolments are dealt with locally, in the local language, in real time. The Regional Office is supporting a network of local agencies, with diligence and vetting carried out by our experienced team. As a result, DIFC welcomed its first students from the region in September 2018.
