Croatia As a Jurisdiction For Your Corporate Account

Croatia, which is officially named the Republic of Croatia, is in South-eastern Europe near to Central Europe and the Mediterranean Sea. Croatia is governed by a parliamentary system and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has classified the country as an emerging and developing nation. Croatia’s population is approximately 4.3 million people.

The Croatian economy has a high dominance in the service sector and other important sectors are industries and agriculture. The country has been listed by the World Bank as a high income country and Croatia is both politically and socially stable. In 2013 Croatia became an official member state of the European Union (EU) and the national currency is the Kuna and which is now pegged to the Euro.

The financial industry in Croatia has two regulators which are the Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency and the Croatian National Bank. Banking regulations are supervised by the Croatia National Bank, and regulations that are very prudent are in place and monitored closely. Various levels of risk management also exist and these are to ensure the financial stability of Croatia.

Since the 1990’s Croatia has been changing the banking regulations in order to comply with international banking standards and they have achieved this over the years. Some of the measures that the banks have to comply with are liquidity ratios, capital adequacy standards, limits on large credit exposures, asset restrictions, regular reporting and disclosure and systems in place for risk management. To ensure that banks adhere to this, the Croatian National Bank has strong surveillance and enforcement powers.

The measures are still evolving and have been very successful to date. The regulator is ruthless in its pursuit of these measures as it wants Croatia to be considered an attractive jurisdiction for international banking. All of the above makes Croatia a jurisdiction of choice when it comes to the safeguarding, diversification and enhancement of your assets.

The Deposit Guarantee Scheme has now been implemented by Croatia as it is a European Union (EU) member state. This scheme aims to provide coverage for investor’s bank deposits protection. With all of the strict regulations in place it is highly unlikely that a bank in Croatia would go into default, but if this were to occur and the bank could not meet the payable requirements of its clients, then the scheme will  guarantee up to 100,000 Euros (EUR) in cover for client deposits. You can find out more about the Deposit Guarantee Scheme from your professional international banking consultant at the Offshore Pro Group.
