VAT Info and FAQ

Regarding the EU VAT taxation, please observe following document:

To ensure SMAGRIMET’s compliance with local and EU tax regulations, 25% VAT must be added to all delegate registrations. Unlike many other B2B transactions, which are generally taxed at the customer’s place of establishment and are handled by the reverse charge mechanism, the SMAGRIMET as a scientific conference is different.

The difference concerns the supply of B2B services in respect to admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission (articles 53 and 54.1 of the European VAT Directive 2006/112/EC). This is one of the several exceptions to the general rule of the article 44 of the VAT Directive.

According to these articles: “the place of supply of services in respect to admission to cultural, artistic, sporting, scientific, educational, entertainment or similar events, such as fairs and exhibitions, and of ancillary services related to the admission, supplied to a taxable person (and non-taxable person), shall be the place where those events actually take place.”

As consequence, the registration fees for the SMAGRIMET in Split for both taxable and non-taxable persons, regardless of their nationality, are subject to Croatian VAT at 25%.

  1. Why am I paying VAT on the conference registration fee?
    You are paying a Value Added Tax (VAT) on the registration fee because it is required by the laws and regulations of the EU and its Member States. They establish that VAT must be paid on the fees in the country where the meeting is held. For this conference, the Croatian VAT is applicable on the registration fee.
  2. Can the VAT be recovered?
    Possibly. Only businesses can claim back the Croatian VAT. To recover VAT you must provide the details of your company (name, address, VAT number or tax ID) for your registration invoice and submit all original documentation to your company for its processing. SMAGRIMET staff will provide you with a proper VAT invoice.
  3. What process should companies follow to recover the VAT?
    EU Companies:  EU companies must contact the Tax Administration of their own country for instructions regarding the conditions and process to follow for reclaiming the Croatian VAT.
