Collection general communiqués prepared by the Ministry of Treasury and Finance Revenue Administration entered into force after being published in the Official Gazette.
The implementation procedures and principles regarding the changes made in the laws related to the communiqués have been determined.
As a result of the amendment made in the Higher Education Credit and Dormitory Services Law No. 351, the debt of students who receive education loans, “with the amount given as a tuition loan” was limited. In addition, regulations were made on how the regulations regarding the calculation of education and contribution loans and the payment of installments would be reflected on existing receivables.
According to the published communiqué, If the tuition and contribution loan installments are not paid or paid incompletely to the General Directorate of Credits and Dormitories as of November 9, the last installment foreseen for the tuition and contribution loan debt will be waited until the due date. Unpaid debts after the due date of the last installment will be reported to the relevant tax office by the General Directorate of Credits and Dormitories to be followed up in accordance with the Law on Collection of Public Receivables.
A late fee will be calculated for tuition and contribution loan installments that are not paid on time.
After the index amounts, which were reported to the tax offices before 9 November and included in the uncollected loan installments as of this date, are deleted, the index-free installment amounts will be followed.
