Croatia is a country on the Mediterranean Sea that borders with such countries as Slovenia and Hungary. It is a member of NATO, WTO, and, most importantly, the European Union, even though it remains outside the Eurozone (the official currency is Croatian kuna or HRK). The country is developing at a considerable pace, with services as the driving force of economic growth.
A company is considered to be resident in Croatia if it has its registered office (seat) or place of effective management and control in the country. Company law in Croatia is governed by the Companies Act. The most popular business structure is a limited liability company. There are two types of limited liability companies: simple and regular.
A simple limited liability company (j.d.o.o.) can have only one member of the management board and the minimal share capital amount is 10.00 HRK. For a regular limited liability company (d.o.o.) the minimum capital is 20,000 HRK. The company’s executive board may have one or more members (directors).
Croatian companies, regardless of their size, are required to prepare annual financial statements and auditor’s reports.
Corporate income tax in Croatia is 18%. There are tax cuts with regard to profits generated through new investment (including new workforce). What is more, companies whose annual income falls below the threshold of 3,000,000.00 HRK benefit from the reduced corporate tax rate of 12%. To calculate tax base, both the income obtained in the country and abroad is taken into consideration. 12% withholding tax on dividends applies, with the exception of dividends paid to companies within the EU. Capital gains tax is 12% to 36%. Obligatory VAT registration applies to companies whose sales exceed 230,000 HRK a year. The standard VAT rate is 25%.
Croatia became an EU Member State in 2013 and receives considerable funding from the European Community. Although it encountered a few years of slowdown after the 2008 financial crisis, Croatian economy is seeing a considerable and steady growth, with GDP figures well above 2%. Croatian currency, kuna, is stable. Thanks to an extensive coastline, Croatia is one of Europe’s favourite holiday destinations and tourism sector constitutes an important part of the country’s economy. Another important industry is shipbuilding.
Formerly a part of Yugoslavia, Croatia declared its independence in 1991. The country is a parliamentary democracy. The executive power lies in the hands of the Prime Minister and the President of the Republic. Sabor, the Croatian parliament, is unicameral and can consist of 100 to 160 MPs. Parliamentary elections are held every four years. The President is elected every five years.
Banks, payment institutions and credit unions fall under the supervision of the Croatian National Bank (HNB). Currently in the country there are over 20 commercial banks, majority of which are foreign entities. The financial system is stable. The four biggest banks in Croatia are Zagrebačka banka (Unicredit Group), PBZ, Erste Bank and Raiffeisenbank.
All companies are equal before the law.
A good formation agent is what makes a difference.

We have setup and sold hundreds of companies. Our company is considered trustworthy and reliable by our clients as well as by many professional law firms and tax advisers.
What is very unique in our style of operation is the fact that we have our ready made companies already registered in many various countries. All other providers have one address where they keep their shelf companies registered so that client wishing to buy more than one company with different address cannot be satisfied.
Many competitors may be offering lower prices however this always is at the expense of service and provided company quality. Our core activity is company formation and sale of ready made companies thus all members of our team have appropriate professional background. Our shelf companies are formed in accordance to all relevant laws and procedures by the team of qualified and experience professionals and lawyers. On the other hand the maintenance of our ready made companies is performed by licensed and proficient accountants and tax advisers. Therefore our clients can be sure that a shelf company they buy from us is clean, with no debts or tax issues, is formed professionally and its Articles of Association are of high quality.
Our main clients are private investors, traders, law, audit, accountancy and tax advisory firms as well as banks and investment funds. Throughout the years of activity Shelfcompanies24 has been enjoying the reputation of the fastest and most responsive shelf company provider.
Our ready made companies have been formed and maintained by our team. Therefore we always guarantee their quality and that they are debt free, with no trading history and consequently riskless to build new ventures on.
Our services do not finish on the sale of shelf companies or company formation. We provide also many other related and necessary services so that we can be treated as a one stop shop in a business setup in many countries. We are also experts in tailor made company formation as well as compliance and registering various changes within the company like director appointments and dismissals, company name change, share capital increase or decrease, company address change and many other issues.
We also provide tax and legal advisory services that are inevitably required by the businesses. We cooperate with many reputable tax and legal advisory firms whose services we can also recommend when the nature of the problem requires certain field specialist engagement.
For those clients who have a need to present their companies documents in foreign countries we provide apostille and translation services. After company sale documents can simply stay with us for the purpose of their apostille or legalisation and sworn translation to any desired language. This service is mainly required when there is a need to open a foreign bank account for a shelf company.
Furthermore we have agreements with many different accounting offices so that we are able to offer a wide choice of the particular accountant that will be dealing with client’s company. Also in case two or more of our clients are trading partners we can ensure that their books will be handled by separate and independent accountants.
Ultimately we can also support with a procedure of liquidation/bankruptcy of a company if a client wishes to withdraw their business presence. In this case we can either manage the process of liquidation or bankruptcy on client’s behalf or simply just dispose the assets and takeover the company so that the clients can enjoy fast exit.
The company delivered a ready-to-go business, with VAT and EU VAT registration. Paperwork and the whole re-registration process was handled efficiently. I recommend this to anyone looking for a no-hassle company acquisition.
Company name of your choice? Check. Accounting services? Check. Help with tax authorities? Check. Finding a translator? Check. What can I say, these people are great and can help you with just anything.
We needed to start building our presence in Poland fast, and a ready-made company seemed like the best option. We got presented with several location choices, picked the company name, signed some paperwork and were good to go. We got a company that was VAT-registered, with multiple bank accounts, just as we wanted.
Thank you for all the help. Your after-sale support is what sets you apart from the competition. It was important for me to get comprehensive company services at one place, with accounting, banking, tax issues handled for me, etc. I got everything I needed.
I really recommend this website if you are looking for a shelf company in Poland. The companies are already registered, with no history and all documentation in place. This is really a great solution if you want to start your business ASAP. And the range of available post-sale services is just amazing.
Thank you for your support! Your advice was invaluable. Polish tax and legal provisions can really be a pain in the neck, but with your help I am able to get going.
Not only did we need a new company, but also someone to take care of our accounting and compliance. Now, we must say ShelfCompanies24 helped us to transition smoothly into the Polish market. Good work, guys!
The company indeed delivers what it promises. I was able to start business in less than no time, with all the formalities taken care of by a super nice team of people. This is a good stop if you want a ready-made company operating in Poland.
