In Croatia cuurrently, all B2G eInvoice exchanges are monitored through the central eInvoicing platform Servis eRačun za državu. The Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development conducts supervision, and as the implementing body, may audit public procurement eInvoices, as well as the checking the conformity and operations of information intermediaries.
More than 22 million eInvoices have been exchanged through the Croatian eInvoicing platform between July 2019 and May 2023.
The Ministry of Finance of Croatia has now formally reached out to the European Commission to obtain a derogation from Articles 218 and 232 of the 2006 VAT Directive. This would give Croatia the right to introduce countrywide mandatory B2B e-invoicing (“eAccount”) and digital reporting for domestic transactions.
The introduction of the mandatory B2B e-invoicing is planned from 1 January 2026.
