In another significant move, the hospitality sector will enjoy a reduction from 25% to 13%. Proven successful in other EU member states, the reduction in VAT is aimed at boosting the tourism industry in Croatia, with a key focus on easing ongoing pressures on the food and drink sector related to hospitality and tourism.

The reduction is expected to reduce the tax burden by approximately €500 million.
