|Measure added||07 April 2020 (updated 08 November 2021)|
In view of the emergency situation related to the coronavirus epidemic Regulation on the procedure, manner and conditions for obtaining concession on tourist land in camps co-owned by the Republic of Croatia has been amended on 17 March 2020. The aim is to mitigate the first financial impact on the tourism sector and to provide the time needed to analyze the damage suffered in the sector in order to take further measures for stabilising it and retaining jobs.
Due to the very low future revenues of the camps, the government decided to enable the postponement of the payment of the concession fee on tourist land in the camps by end November 2020. The measure applies to companies performing tourism activities on the basis of a request for a concession on the co-owned part of the Republic of Croatia for the use of the camp, in accordance with Article 8, paragraph 1 of the Law on Tourist and Other Construction Land, not evaluated in the process of conversion and privatization (Official Gazette, No. 92 / 10).
The Ministry of Tourism, as the implementing body, will continue with the activities of determining the amount of the concession fee and will inform the payers of the amount of the permanent and variable part of the concession fee, whose payment has been postponed until November 30 2020. It is estimated that 80 camps in Croatia might benefit from this measure.
