How much is the tax on real estate sales in Croatia

In Croatia, the real estate transfer tax is 3% for all types of real estate and all types of transactions. The amount of tax is determined on the basis of the price of the sales contract and the assessment of the competent tax administration. According to the law, the tax is paid by the buyer. The deadline for filing sales tax with the tax administration is 30 days from the day of signing the sales contract. Then the buyer is obliged to pay the tax within 15 days from the date of issuance of the decision from the tax administration, otherwise he pays interest.

Is it possible to pay in foreign currency?

Yes, payment is made by post, bank or mobile banking. Only in the case of sales tax, foreign currency funds are converted into kuna and thus paid.

Can foreign citizens buy real estates in Croatia?

They can. They need the consent of the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (except for citizens of the European Union). Consent can be obtained by citizens of those countries with which the Republic of Croatia has signed a reciprocity agreement, and in exceptional cases by others. The procedure is as follows: When a foreign citizen decides to buy real estate, he concludes a sales contract with the seller, who at that time does not have to be notarized, and submits it with certain documentation to the Ministry of Affairs in Zagreb. Once he obtains the consent, only then can he register the ownership in his own name and pay the real estate transfer tax. Foreign citizens who establish or have an established company in Croatia can buy real estate as the property of that company.
