The Law on the introduction of the euro as the official currency in the Republic of Croatia, published in Official Gazette 57/22, is in force from May 17, 2022.
Croatia’s entry into the Eurozone brings numerous changes, adjustments and additional obligations for entrepreneurs. Among other things, entrepreneurs must pay the notary public for the change in share capital in the amount of 2,500 HRK if it is a limited liability company.
The deadline for entering the change is for joint-stock companies to be submitted to the registry no later than one year from the date of introduction of the euro, while limited liability companies have a deadline of no more than three years from the date of introduction of the euro to submit a request to the registry court for entry of the change.
Fines are also prescribed for those who do not register the change of the euro currency as the official currency in the court register on time. A legal entity will be fined 6,630 euros, and a responsible person up to 920 euros.
