Representative Office in Croatia

Foreign persons carrying out business activities may, under the condition of reciprocity, found a representative office in the Republic of Croatia for the purposes of representation, market research, promotion and information dissemination.

The Trade Act regulates the establishment of a representative office.

The reciprocity condition is not applied to foreigners having their seat or permanent residents in the World Trade Organization member countries.

A representative office is not a legal person and the activities are completed upon the founder’s request.

Prior to opening, the representative office must be entered into the Registry of Representative Offices, maintained by the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Croatia. Registration procedures and foundation are regulated by the Decree on Conditions for Establishment and Operation of Foreign Representative Offices (Official Gazette No. 7/97).
