Croatia, like all EU member states, will also introduce in 2025 the new SME Special Scheme VAT threshold of €100,000. Croatian traders will be able to sell VAT-exempt across the other 26 member states. This will require a new, quarterly report of sales and obtaining a new EX number for invoicing.

The allowance is only available to resident businesses. The threshold is based on the business’ prior year sales for goods and / or services exclusive of VAT calculation. If a business exceeds this limit during a year, it’s obligation to VAT register starts from the month following the month when the threshold was passed.

The threshold is not available to farmers, letting of immovable property or intra-community supplies of new means of transport.

Croatia businesses below the threshold may nevertheless apply for a voluntary VAT registration.
