This is through a hotel programme (rental pool), by which the owner - under pre-agreed conditions - leaves the apartment to the operator on the basis of a lease agreement for commercial short-term rental. Specific details as per the rental agreement. Rental income is divided in a 60:40 ratio in favour of the owner. Operational costs (energy and bills) inside apartments are proportionally divided between the owners in the pool.

Residential package: complete estimated costs of operating the resort are EUR 50/m2/year of apartment living area (i.e. excluding balconies and terraces).

The residential package excludes energy usage and bills inside apartments. The management company will make these payments on the basis of semi-annual advance payments for: electricity supply, water, heat, media and necessary adjustments inside an apartment. Advance payments in the first year are an estimate - the final amount depends on apartment size and real consumption. The estimated amount is EUR 40 to EUR 75 per month/apartment.

As part of the hotel programme (rental pool), each owner has a set time fund available for private use. That also includes a hotel services package for the owner's comfort - such as cleaning/ washing/changing hotel linen, hotel cosmetics, internet connection, and a standard TV programme package. In the high season (June - September), the owner can use the apartment for 14 days and out of season (November - April) for 7 days. Outside the high season, the owner can use the apartment as needed, however hotel services (cleaning, requests, etc.) are charged as per the price list.

Acquisition of real estate by a Slovak legal entity:

  • registration and management of VAT in Croatia
  • accounting for acquisition and business with Croatian real estate
  • risk of establishing a permanent establishment in Croatia
  • more complicated calculation of the tax base in Slovakia

The following alternative is simpler:

  • Croatian subsidiary (CroCo) owned by Slovak legal entity (SlovCo)
  • CroCo will register for VAT in Croatia
  • properties will be acquired by CroCo
  • business activities related to real estate will be accounted for in CroCo, and taxed as per Croatian tax law
  • dividends paid from CroCo to SlovCo will not be subject to tax in Slovakia or Croatia
  • the sale of real estate by CroCo will be subject to tax in Croatia
  • the sale of CroCo by the parent company SlovCo will be exempt from income tax in Slovakia if the conditions of § 13c of the Income Tax Act are met (very simplified: after two years of ownership)

Croatian corporate tax is 18%, and 10% tax applies for a tax period with sales of less than approx. EUR 1 mil.
Slovak corporate tax is 21%, and 15% tax applies for sales during a tax period of less than EUR 49 790.

The acquisition of real estate in Croatia directly by a Slovak company is a more complicated alternative (from the accounting, tax and legal perspective).
