As Poslovni / N1 write, Croatian citizens are already mostly familiar with what awaits them from the first of January. One of the questions that remain, however, is what will happen to the utility bills for December, which will arrive in January.
The utility bills for the December consumption will be issued in January 2023 and will be expressed in euros, according to the Croatian Association of Bankers.
For all payment slips that the citizens receive in advance and on which the amount of payment is in kuna, and they pay them after the introduction of the euro, the bank is obliged to make payment in euro in the amount corresponding to the amount of kuna specified on the payment order. The bank will act this way until July 1, 2023, says the Croatian Association of Bankers.
It is crucial to emphasize, they remind, that from the 5th of September until the 31st of December 2022, the dual pricing continues. This means that the final amount of the bill will be in HRK and EUR with the fixed conversion rate specified.
There are exceptions to that:
- value shown for prepaid electronic communication services (prepaid vouchers)
- the value and amount stated on the payment order based on an invoice or other individual document, i.e. based on the displayed price
- the value shown on cards for public payphones
- the value printed on the SIM card packaging
