Annual Dues and Extra dues are paid as two equal installments in June and October of each year. For the dues that are not paid within these periods, default interest is accrued and collected at the current rates in accordance with the law numbered 6183.
• Duty of Informing Status Changes:
In accordance with the 10th article of the Law of Union of Chamber of Commodity Exchanges numbered 5174 “The ones obliged to register to chambers are obliged to inform any kind of change in their statuses what need to be certified and declared according to Turkish Commercial Code to the chambers they are registered, within one day as of the occurrence of a change. Relevant chamber that is informed about a factor whose certification of trade registry is obligatory but that is not certified in legal form and period, reports the status of those ones that do not meet the legal obligation to relevant trade registry office to make the necessary registry changes. Trade registry offices are obliged to conduct the necessary procedures upon this notification.”
• Suspending the Registrations:
Continuing with the aforesaid clause ”Names of the ones whose addresses and statuses could not be defined as of the previous two years of the current year and the ones who did not pay due within this period are removed from the occupational groups and elector lists; due accruals are stopped. Chamber board of executors is responsible for the carrying out of this paragraph provision in January each year.
In case the relevant person does not report its address and situation by applying to tits registered chamber within two years of the beginning year following the decision of chamber board mentioned in the paragraph above, with the proposal of chamber board and decision of the assembly trade registry office is notified to delete the trade register entry ex-officio. Register is deemed to be deleted as of the first day of the month following the notification. Due accruals of the members reported their status within this period are launched. However, members in this case cannot be registered to elector list unless they pay all their due debts.”
That is why, our members shall urgently notify our Chamber in case of any change in address, main contract, structure, partnership or suchlike matters. In case when address and telephone changes are not reported, we experience problems in communicating our members.
