Goodbye long queues and slow administration.
Anyone who’s ever tried to open a trade or company in Croatia understands the concept of walking from door to door, being sent back because of missing documentation or being faced with clerks that have no idea what your next steps are. Well, it seems those days are finally behind us, at least that is what the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Crafts Gordan Maras announced during today’s press conference
“As of September 2015, we aim to transfer all activities relating to the opening of new trades and companies online. We expect the first e-trade to be approved in September while companies will be able to obtain an online license as of February or March 2016” Maras commented.
He also added that, as far as the trade opening procedure is concerned, all requirements have been met, data bases have been connected, and the software is adapted. The only thing that remains are certain changes in the legislation that will allow companies to be open in the same way, and those changes should be applied by the beginning of 2016.
