Croatia VAT changes

Croatia has moved a number of changes to its VAT Act to come into effect in 2018. These include:

  • The VAT rate will be cut from 25% to 24% from 1 January 2018
  • The VAT registration threshold for resident companies will be raised from 1 January 2018 to HRK 300,000.  The threshold for non-resident companies providing taxable supplies in Croatia will remain at zero.
  • VAT on restaurant services, excluding alcohol, will be reclassified from the reduced, 13% rate, to the higher standard rate in 2018
