Inflation: Who Can Actually Apply for Croatian Gas Vouchers?

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Brnic writes, there is finally a bit more clarity out there for those who are waiting impatiently for April the 1st this year and the beginning of the ability to apply for Croatian gas vouchers recently approved by the government in order to cover some of the cost of rising gas prices.

Naturally, people interested in getting their hands on Croatian gas vouchers are interested in which of the conditions they need to meet in order to collect such monthly subsidies for one year. It seems, thankfully, that the Ministry of Economy won’t make the requirements all that strict.

The right to use Croatian gas vouchers, as provided by the recent government decision, will be held by all micro, small and medium enterprises whose annual gas consumption doesn’t exceed 10 GWh, and the condition will be that the applicant hasn’t used the maximum amount of small value aid, which currently stands at 1.5 million kuna.

It is important that no bankruptcy proceedings have been instituted against a company seeking Croatian gas vouchers, a conviction cannot have been instituted or handed down for them participating in a criminal organisation or for acts of corruption, either.

“Eligibility for the subsidy isn’t checked in relation to whether the applicant has debts to a gas supplier, nor whether their accounts are blocked, because the subsidy is paid through a voucher which is usable only for gas, meaning there is no possibility to use the subsidy for any other purpose in addition to reducing the cost of their delivered gas,” they explained from the aforementioned ministry.

Much more detailed conditions will be explained on the application form itself, which will be filled out on Hamag-Bicro’s website, which will operationally implement a programme for the next year for which 600 million kuna has been provided.
