Croatia belongs to the attractive European jurisdictions whose potential is underestimated. The country has a steadily growing economy with significantly developed industrial sectors like mechanical engineering, pharmaceuticals, and tourism. Therefore, it can be interesting to open a company in Croatia (Zagreb or any other city) because of the access to many benefits.

Advantages of registering a business in Croatia

If you have set your sights on registering a company in Croatia, this option can be potentially advantageous due to the following advantages of the jurisdiction:
  • steadily developing economy;
  • the favorable location in the European region with free access to European markets;
  • availability of free economic zones;
  • openness to foreign investors;
  • fast company registration procedure in Croatia;
  • the possibility of obtaining a residence permit without any problems.

Business and legal presence forms

It is possible to open a business in Croatia or otherwise establish a business presence in one of several forms:
  • A Limited Liability Company is a business that can be founded even by one participant whose liability does not exceed the investment amount. The minimum founding capital is 20,000 Croatian kuna. The company has simple record-keeping and filing requirements. Suitable for small and medium businesses.
  • A joint-stock company is suitable for large businesses that plan to attract investments in large volumes. One shareholder can find a company whose liability, under all conditions, does not exceed the investment amount. The minimum amount of share capital is 200,000 Croatian kuna. JSC has stricter requirements for accounting and reporting.
  • A branch is a form of doing business by a foreign company that can carry out the same activities in Croatia as it does in its country of registration.
  • A representative office is an option where a foreign company has no right to conduct business in Croatia. Still, it can explore local markets to invest large sums in this country in the future.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ.

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
