If you want to start your own business in Croatia, the best way for establishing a new company is to do a paperwork in public notary office.
The cost to notarize the memorandum of association depends on the number of founders and the founding capital (from HRK 10 to HRK 20.000 or unlimited).
Costs associated with this procedure:
HRK 4.240+25% VAT (drafting and notarizing the articles of association), HRK 220+VAT (drafting application for registration), HRK 192,50+25% VAT (drafting and notarizing acceptance of appointment), HRK 190,50+25%VAT (notarizing founders' statements of non-existence of debts), HRK 190,50+25% VAT (notarizing decision on business address), HRK 190,50+25% VAT (notarizing decision on appointment of director), HRK 38+25% VAT (notarizing director signature specimen) + HRK 400 (court fees) + HRK 900 (publication fees)
