Large-scale companies with debts of more than TL 25 million to banks and financial institutions will be able to benefit directly from this application. Companies with credit debts below TL 25 million will be included in the implementation only after the necessary approvals. Companies with definite bankruptcy decisions will not benefit from Financial Restructuring. With the implementation, the debts are secured against bankruptcy, while the credit effect of creditors will be prevented by a domino effect.

The longest maturity of the debts under TL 25 million will be 60 months. Up to 12 months of principal and interest-free period can be given. Payment frequencies will vary according to sectors.

Mustafa Köksoya stated that the companies should keep their financial processes under strict control since the establishment stage and said, için In order for companies to maintain their existence, there should be a system in which the income and expense balance is set up correctly and the payments and receivables are managed effectively. Companies whose financial structure is deteriorated should manage the process very well.
