R: Hi Colin, I have just sold my apartment in Turkey and have put 150,000TL into the TEB bank, I opened an internet time deposit account with them which they helped me setup in the branch. I have opted for a 6 month time deposit with an interest rate of 11% but any interest earned you will pay 15% tax on, therefore on my amount invested after tax I will receive 6905 TL, the time deposit will automatically renew for another 6 months at the new higher figure. Hope this is of some help to you.
I'm looking to purchase a property in Turkey and would like to open an account in the bank, plus I also want to deposit around 50000 GBP to earn interest on it. Please guide how much return will be on this deposit.
