According to Croatian Law on Property Ownership, foreign citizens and enterprises will need to obtain consent from the Ministry of Justice in the Republic of Croatia. Any application may be initiated by the application or through an attorney by sending a request in writing to The Ministry of Justice in Zagreb. Permission will only be granted to a Foreign Citizen if there is a Reciprocity Agreement between Croatia and the State where you are a registered citizen.
This means that if a Croatian Citizen has the right to acquire property in your home country then you have the right to acquire property in Croatia.
Full details on law governing Property Acquisition can be found at http://www.mfa.hr If you require the assistance of an attorney in making your application, our Legal department can advise and assist. Please click here firstname.lastname@example.org
Antropoti Real Estate Concierge Services offer the complete service of setting up a company either remotely, or together with the client. We take care of every aspect of setting up a company, unlike most company formation services in Croatia; we hand over a fully functioning company. We also offer a full accounting and tax advising service, plus the option of registering our address as the seat of your company (for a small yearly fee).
For remote formation, we prepare all documents and send them to the client with the instructions on how to execute them. However, prior to preparing the documents, we must have all the information below:
1. Name of the company – The name usually has to be of Latin or Croatian origin or the initials or name of one of the founders of the company.
2. Seat of the company – the company needs to have the registered seat and address in Croatia; (we can register the company on our office address for a small yearly fee).
3. Activities – is the company being formed to hold real estate, or for other purposes? We formulate the activities to be in compliance with Croatian regulations.
4. Management board – the directors need to be appointed (there must be at least one director). The director can be foreigner – we need to have the personal details of the director. If there are more then one director, it must be decided how will they represent the company (solely or jointly);
5. Founder of the company – it can be legal a entity of physical person – in either case we need to have details (if the founder is the legal entity, the verified and appostiled certificate of registration must be obtained);
1. The future director of the company must personally execute the following documents (if executed abroad, documents must be signed before a notary public and apostiled in the manner provided by the Hague Convention) :
a. Deed of acceptance of the position as the director of the company
b. Specimen of signature
c. Application to the Commercial Court register – must be signed by the director personally or through representative authorised by special power of representation
2. The founder must either personally or through the representative pass the following documents (in case the documents are passed through the empowered person, the founder must issue special power of representation):
a. Decision to form the company;
b. Deed of incorporation of the company;
c. List of members of the company and authorised persons of the company
We can register the seat of the company on our or at partner’s office address. We charge the yearly fee of EUR 1.000. This includes forwarding mail and bank statements.
We also provide a competitively priced accounting service. Either on a yearly fixed fee basis (if the companies only function is to buy/ sell real estate), or a monthly basis.
Once you have found the property or piece of land that you want, there are certain steps that need to be completed. These are outlined below:
Our staff will, with your guidance, negotiate the sale price of the property and verbally reserve the property
You must appoint a Solicitor to deal with you purchase (a list of Solicitors is available from www.fco.gov.uk/Croatia). We have an in-house lawyer who can deal with this on your behalf. The Solicitor will check to ensure that the land has “Clean Title” and that the seller has the legal right to sell the land. A lot of this work will have already been undertaken by our Staff, so the process should be smooth. Were there are problems with the Title of the Property; we will work with both the Vendor and the Purchaser to resolve the issue quickly. Apply to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for permission to purchase the property (UK Citizens)
Would you buy a piece of property in your own country without first having it surveyed? It’s unlikely. We have developed a range of services for anyone purchasing real estate in Croatia. We will work with you to ensure that the relevant surveys are carried out before you proceed with the purchase. Our reports will be translated into English or German.
We will draw up a pre-contract between the vendor and our client stipulating the conditions of the sale. The Purchaser will be required to pay a 10% deposit on the property at this stage. If the Purchaser subsequently pulls out of the contract, they will loss their deposit. If the vendor pulls out it should be a condition that they pay you 10%
Decide whether to purchase as a Private individual or through a company. Your circumstances will dictate the best option for you. If required you can sit down with our Tax Advisor for advice. We will assist you in setting up a Local Bank account
Transferring money abroad to complete the purchase of your property can be simplified by using a Specialist Currency Trading firm. Although all properties advertised are priced in Euros, the law in Croatia states that the contract must be completed in Croatian Kuna (The local currency). Organizations like TorFX and The Money Corp have a wealth of experience in this area and can work with you to ensure that you get the best possible exchange rate available
All the paperwork will be rechecked and the final contract drawn up. This contract is signed in the presence of Notary by both the Vendor and the Purchaser. You can provide your Solicitor Power of Attorney to sign this contract on your behalf. Once this has been signed, the solicitor will submit the paperwork to the Land Registry where your details will be entered into the books. Once you complete you will have to pay 5% Real Estate Tax (R.E.T). To simplify things, we suggest that you provide these funds to your solicitor at the time of completion.
We check all the properties we take on before we advertise them to ensure that they have “clean title” and the relevant permissions. Once you have chosen your property, the process to complete the purchase with the vendor can take anywhere from 3 days to 1 month, depending on the location of the client for document execution purposes. Croatia is in the process of implementing a new Land Registry system and there are many people who have clean title and can prove it, but who are unable to obtain the relevant paperwork from the Government in an acceptable timescale. Our Lawyers will work with the vendor to obtain the relevant documentation in a reasonable timescale.
It will take approximately 4 weeks to set up a company in Croatia. You will need to appoint an Accountant to assist you with the process. You will need to gain proof from the Croatian Tax office that you do not owe the Croatian Government any money. You will need 20,000.00 HRK (approx EUR 2,700) as Share Capital deposited in a Croatian Bank, therefore you will need to open a Kuna Account in Croatia. You will need the services of a Notary to prepare the documentation for submission to the Croatian Courts. Our Accountant can assist you with this process.
Antropoti Real Estate Concierge Services provide assistance to foreign nationals requiring a visa in Croatia. Please contact our Visa Team to discuss your requirements. They can be contacted via email – Click Here
The purpose of this section is to provide guidance to foreign nationals who will be working or seeking employment in the Republic of Croatia in respect of necessary permits and visas. It should be noted that this section does not aim to provide thorough and comprehensive legal requirements and conditions in regard to the necessity of obtaining particular types of permits but rather to present mere guidelines for obtaining them.
Foreign nationals employed in Croatia or being assigned to work in Croatia for a certain period of time are required to obtain either a Work Permit or a Business Permit. The application for both types of permits should be made at the local office of the Croatian Ministry of the Interior. Once a work permit has been obtained, a foreign national should apply for a Temporary Residence Permit.
An application for a Business Permit can be made by individuals who are self-employed or are majority owners or performing tasks in the name and on behalf of the majority owner of an entity established in Croatia. A business permit is valid both as a work permit and a residence permit.
A Travel Visa must be obtained by foreign nationals coming from countries for which the Croatian Government has prescribed a special visa regime and is required for the purpose of a business trip, tourist or personal visit.
The Croatian Government determines an annual quota for issuing Croatian work permits. However, work permits for certain types of employees are not subject to an annual quota.
For example, the quota regime does not apply for foreigners performing key activities within Croatian entities or for individuals internally transferred within related companies, as per the signed Marrakech Agreement.
Only in exceptional cases, prescribed by the Law on Foreigners is a work permit not required.
An application for a business permit is required to be submitted in person to the local office of the Croatian Ministry of the Interior. An application for a permit should be made on the same day as registering a residential address in Croatia.
Once approved, a business permit is stamped in the passport of the individual. A business permit represents both a work permit and a residence permit for the duration of its validity. A business permit is usually granted for a period of 1 year.
The individual should apply for a permit extension in Croatia at least one month prior to its expiry.
Where the individual applying for a business permit is required to obtain a visa in order to enter Croatia, please refer to the section Travel visa.
An application for a work permit must be submitted by the Croatian company to the Croatian Ministry of the Interior. The individual’s physical presence is not required.
It takes 1-2 weeks from the date of application for the work permit to be granted. A work permit is usually granted for a period of 1 year. To extend a work permit, the Croatian company should apply for renewal at least 45 days prior to its expiry.
Subsequent step: For obtaining a residence permit – please refer to the appropriate title.
The residence permit, also referred to as the Temporary Residence Permit is necessary for all individuals arriving in Croatia for the purpose of employment, except for those in possession of a valid Croatian business permit. An individual coming to work in Croatia cannot apply for a temporary residence permit for the purpose of employment if he/she entered the country as a tourist.
An application for a temporary residence permit for the purpose of employment should be submitted to the nearest Croatian Consulate abroad at least one month prior to the individual’s planned arrival in Croatia.
In the case where an individual has entered Croatia legally without a visa, a request for a temporary residence permit can be made upon his/her arrival in Croatia at the local office of the Ministry of the Interior. The individual’s physical presence is required. The permit is applied for on the same day as registering a residential address in Croatia.
The approved residence permit for the purpose of employment is stamped into the individual’s passport and is usually granted within 1 month from application. The approved residence permit for the purpose of employment is issued for the period of validity of the previously obtained work permit.
If obtained at a Croatian Consulate, a residence permit for the purpose of employment must be validated (stamped) upon entry into Croatia at the border crossing.
Subsequent steps: For a residence permit for the purpose of employment obtained at a Croatian Consulate, registration of a residential address and registration of a residence permit with the Croatian Ministry of the Interior – please refer to the appropriate title.
Upon his/her arrival to Croatia, an individual’s residence permit obtained at the Croatian Consulate abroad should be registered at the local office of the Croatian Ministry of the Interior.
When registering the residential address (see: Registration of a Residential Address in Croatia), the individual and/or any accompanying family member must be present at the local office of the Croatian Ministry of the Interior.
A foreign national is required to obtain a travel visa before entering the Republic of Croatia, in accordance with the visa system prescribed by the Croatian Government. A travel visa is issued for one, two or more visits to the Republic of Croatia for tourist, business, personal or other purposes.
An application for a travel visa should be submitted to the nearest Croatian consulate abroad, at least one month prior to the planned arrival into Croatia.
If the individual is not required to obtain a visa to enter Croatia, he/she may apply for a business permit or a residence permit on arrival in Croatia, at the local office of the Ministry of the Interior.
A travel visa may be issued for a maximum period of one year. A continuous stay or an overall duration of repeated entries should not exceed 90 days, during a 6-month period starting from the day of entry. Also, the same limitations apply if the foreign citizen is not required to obtain a visa before entering the Republic of Croatia.
Subsequent step: For registration of a residential address in Croatia and application for a business permit or a residence permit – please refer to the appropriate title.
Within 24 hours of arriving, each individual has to register his/her residential address in Croatia. If the individual is staying in a hotel, the hotel will perform the registration or if the individual will be renting premises, then he/she should register the private residential address once the premises have been rented. Those renting accommodation in Croatia should personally register the residential address with the local office of the Ministry of the Interior.
A residence permit, also referred to as a “Temporary Residence Permit” is required for all family members arriving in Croatia for the purpose of accompanying individuals who are in possession of a Croatian business permit or a work permit.
An application for a temporary residence permit for the purpose of an accompanying family member should be submitted at least one month prior to the individual’s planned arrival in Croatia, at the nearest Croatian consulate abroad. An application should be made simultaneously with the application of an individual coming to work in Croatia (“Main permit holder”).
If the family member is not required to obtain a visa to enter Croatia, a request for a temporary residence permit can be made on his/her arrival in Croatia, at the local office of the Ministry of the Interior. The individual’s physical presence is required. The permit is applied for on the same day when registering a residential address in Croatia.
A temporary residence permit for the purpose of an accompanying family member is stamped into an individual’s passport and is usually granted within 1 month from application. It is issued for the period of validity of the main permit holder’s residence permit.
To extend the permit, an application for renewal should be made with the local office of the Ministry of the Interior at least 1 month prior to the residence permit expiry date.
If obtained at a Croatian Consulate, the residence permit for the purpose of accompanying family members must be validated (stamped) on entry into Croatia at the border crossing.
Subsequent steps: For a residence permit for the purpose of an accompanying family member obtained at a Croatian Consulate, registration of a residential address and registration of the residence permit with the Croatian Ministry of the Interior – please refer to the appropriate titles.
Foreign nationals coming to Croatia who are required to obtain temporary residence or business permits are also required to have health coverage in Croatia. This requirement is imposed on all individuals applying for Croatian permits, meaning the main permit holder and the accompanying family members.
After an application for a temporary residence or business permit is made with the Croatian Ministry of the Interior, a foreign national is required to register with the Croatian Health Insurance Fund. The registration is performed at the Croatian Health Insurance Fund according to the individual’s place of residence in Croatia and does not require the individual’s physical presence. The certificate of registration obtained on registration must be submitted to the Ministry of the Interior in order for the temporary residence permit or business permit to be approved.
Foreign nationals coming from countries with which Croatia has signed a Social Security Convention and who are covered by their home country’s social security system should obtain the certificate prescribed by the Convention. Foreign nationals who submit the prescribed certificate are exempted from contributions for health insurance in Croatia.
Foreign nationals coming from countries with which Croatia has not signed a Social Security Convention and those who cannot provide the required certificate from the foreign social security authorities are required to obtain basic health insurance with the Croatian Health Insurance Fund.
