Following the decision of the Croatian Tax Administration dated July 16th 2014, it is now possible to release goods into free circulation with exemption from VAT providing that the goods are intended for the recipient in another Member State of the European Union (EU). Foreign recipients of goods - taxpayers in other EU Member States will be able to use this right through a tax representative that they will appoint in Croatia. This decision opens up new opportunities for cargo acquisition and raises the competitiveness of the Rijeka Gateway.
