Deloitte services for European Union

Integrity and Quality

 Deloitte services for European UnionTaking into account that Croatia will join the EU on 1 July 2013, there is no question that we face challenges, individually and collectively, on our path to become a full member of the European Union. From the experience of other countries, it is known that joining the EU really is a powerful stimulus and actuating force for the implementation of reform programmes.

Deloitte has an integrated approach towards European Union Institutions & Agencies, focused on services in the following areas:

VAT and Customs Compliance

VAT and Customs ComplianceCroatian entrepreneurs, in particular those trading with EU partners, will have to adapt their day-to-day business processes to requirements that will arise from Croatia’s full EU membership. Transactions with EU partners will not be treated as import and export transactions in terms of customs and VAT, they will be treated as intra¬community trade. Consequently, the focus of the traders will have to be shift from completion of import and export formalities to compliance with reporting requirement as set by the laws. With its team of experts Deloitte can meet clients’ pre and post accession needs and make a valuable contribution in setting up and implementation of the new business models.

Our core VAT&Customs services include an overall project completed in three stages:

  • VAT mapping
  • Projection of impact of the new legislation on company’s business processes and recommendation for strategic changes
  • Assistance and advisory in the implementation phase


Grants & Incentives

Grants & IncentivesNumerous new opportunities for funding business development and projects from EU funds will become available to Croatian companies upon Croatia’s acquiring a full member-state status. Among other, Deloitte professionals can assist in the following areas:

  • Developing application strategy tailored to business plans to maximise the volume of benefits and optimise related commitments
  • Drafting applications for EU funds and advising during the realisation and maintenance periods (aftercare phase)
  • Assisting informing necessary consortia for funds requiring joint application
  • Assessment of future aid opportunities or of existing aid against EU state aid requirements
