Do Not Cut Back On The Guidage Declared As Net Pay

Do Not Cut Back On The Guidage Declared As Net Pay

The tourist guiding becomes a self-employment with the entry into force of the Law Profession of Tourist Guides. The principles relating to the determination of the base payment of the tourist guides practicing their profession as  ‘’self employment’’ is enacted in the sixth article of the law number 6326.

The base payment id determined by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and it is obvious in the document of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism that agencies need to render a base payment which is not less than the payment determined by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to the tourist guides.

In this regard, we bring to our collegues’ attention that description in the announcement published on the website of Association of Turkish Travel Agencies is at odds with the law number 6326, the base wage scale determined by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the submission of Finance Ministry.
