Reduction in RUSF Rates for TRY Facilities Utilized from Abroad

In accordance with the Council of Ministers’ Decree published in the Official Gazette on 15 March 2017, the Resource Utilization Support Fund (RUSF) rates for TRY facilities utilized from abroad, which was 3% prior to this Decree, have been re-determined as:

  • 1%  for TRY facilities with a maturity up to 1 year, and
  • 0% for TRY facilities with a maturity of 1 year or more.

Such reduction in RUSF rates will not be applicable for fiduciary transactions where the funds established in Turkey are first taken abroad by means of a bank or branch established abroad and then transferred back to Turkey.
