Taxation

Croatia - Taxation


Residents of the Republic of Croatia are generally subject to taxation on their worldwide income. Foreign nationals are viewed as tax residents if they reside in Croatia for more than 183 days in the tax year, and/or if they maintain a residence available for their exclusive and continuous use within Croatia. The residence does not have to be owned (it can be a lease, for example) in order for you to be considered a tax resident.

Non-residents are generally subject to tax only on their Croatian-source income.

Croatia is a signatory to double tax treaties with most developed nations worldwide.

Foreign residents may be exempt from taxation on foreign pension income. It is prudent to consult an international tax specialist to determine your precise liability in this regard.

Taxation on rental income is set at fifteen per cent, but there are deductions available which may reduce the actual amount paid to near eight percent.

VAT is levied on most goods and services (including property) and is set at twenty-two percent.

There is no wealth tax or inheritance tax (for first line of succession) in the Republic of Croatia.

Tax rules and regulations change frequently, so it is advisable for foreign nationals to consult with a tax professional prior to relocating to Croatia.
