HRTurizam writes that catering, as one of the hardest-hit sectors of the economy, will welcome any aid at the moment. Epidemiological measures and restrictions have left an indelible mark on the numerous lives of employees in the hospitality industry.

To overcome this difficult period, the City of Vinkovci has announced support for catering facilities. The first aid refers to one-time assistance of HRK 2,000 to employees in the hospitality industry, while the city will also cancel consumption tax.

“Caterers are an important part of entrepreneurship in our city, and any job that depends on them is also invaluable. Therefore, we have decided to help our caterers, and HRK 800,000 have been provided for this purpose, and the funds will be distributed so that applicants will receive HRK 2,000 per employee. We hope that this measure of ours, with state aid, will be enough to overcome this situation they are in, against their will,” said the mayor of Vinkovci Ivan Bosančić, and added that caterers would continue to pay only one kuna for renting public space, which should make it easier for them to do business during the summer.

Furthermore, the mayor of Vinkovci announced that they had plans to cancel the city consumption tax. It is a proposal that will go to the City Council, and the decision should be applied from the beginning of next year. Until now, the consumption tax rate in Vinkovci was 3%, and the City of Vinkovci had an annual income of around HRK 900,000. 

This news comes after the mayor of Sveta Nedelja, Dario Zurovec, announced on his Facebook profile that all owners of catering facilities and gyms in the city area would receive one-time assistance of HRK 1,500.

“One-time assistance of the Sveta Nedelja City to cafes, restaurants, gyms, and fitness centers in the amount of 1,500 kuna will at least somewhat alleviate the difficult situation in which our fellow citizens find themselves, whose right to work is limited due to epidemiological measures. Vision, ambition, development, and responsible management have resulted in our city setting standards for the whole of Croatia in recent years. I want us to continue to be that – an example for others city,” wrote Mayor Dario Zurović on his Facebook page.
