Croatian tax liability evaluation

Croatia’s income tax system is residence-based. That means that anyone residing in Croatia for more than 183 days is obligated to report and potentially pay income tax on their worldwide income. However, it’s not that simple. We can connect you to a vetted tax advisor who can evaluate your liability to ensure there are no ugly surprises.
