Turkey has exempted non-resident financial institutions from paying a foreign currency purchase tax, the country’s Official Gazette said on Saturday, APA reports citing Reuters.

The Bank Insurance and Transaction Tax (BSMV) was raised in May to 1% from 0.2% in a move to discourage a so-called dollarization trend among Turks buying dollars and other hard currencies.

The presidential decision, published in the Gazette, takes immediate effect.
