Starting from 01.01.2019, the Croatian fiscal authorities require that foreign coach operators providing occasional transportation services in Croatia have to send a notification of the planned tour.
This decision is in accordance with the new national regulation on VAT („Pravilnik o porezu na dodanu vrijednost“) published in the Official Croatian Gazette number 1/2019 released on 02.01.2019.
As a consequence, every tour with transit or destination in Croatia has to be notified before departure to the Croatian Tax Office. Furthermore, for each month in which a tour has been carried out a monthly VAT return has to be submitted by the 20th day of the next month after the one of reference.
In case you did not have any tour in Croatia, there is no obligation to send notifications nor even file a so-called “Nil VAT return”.
