Price alignment through EU and euro accession

Croatia’s accession to the common euro currency area has also benefited the price alignment for real estate that has been observed for years. Real estate prices in Croatia are rising and are approaching the much more expensive euro countries Italy, Austria & Slovenia.

By joining the euro, Croatia has better access to the capital market and can finance itself better at lower interest rates than with its own currency. The rating agencies are also giving Croatia better and better grades, making it easier to obtain credit.

Accession to the EU in 2013 enabled duty-free market access to the European Union and thus benefits Croatia’s economic development.

Flat-Tax System

Entrepreneurs and digital nomads in particular benefit from the flat tax tax system in Croatia. Croatia is characterized by significantly lower corporate taxes and significantly lower withholding taxes / capital gains taxes than most European countries.
