“The tax burden on Croatian households and companies has been reduced by about 4 billion kuna ($632,723,831 )as part of the tax reforms introduced since 2017, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Monday evening, when asked to comment whether the government still had plans to reduce the general VAT rate.

‘This easing of the tax burden has contributed to considerable economic growth and increased spending. Because of these changes, many of our fellow Croatians have seen their personal income increase, and that can be felt. I think this upcoming third phase of the tax reform will also produce desired effects,’ Plenkovic said after attending a meeting of senior officials of the ruling Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) party in Zagreb.” (N1)
