    Why invest in expensive in-house financial management when somebody else is eager and willing to invest in you?

  • Your company needs an auditor

    Croatian accounting law recognises companies as micro, small, medium or large. Because of these categories some companies are obligated to do an audit of their year end reports.

    Lately we have noticed that audits that are not the legal obligation of companies have became a trend, wether they be of financial reports or business audits. Owners of mostly small and middle companies, that have been in business more than ten years, have found their place on the market, organised their in-house structure, gained some experience but have also garnered some doubts about their business management.

    They do not worry whether they are doing something illegal, they worry whether they made some formal mistakes or do they know how to solve specific problems and they need some advice on how to solve unusual or exceptional situations.
    Croatian law does not require all limited liability companies to prepare audit reports. Despite that, companies want to have someone who is independent and professional evaluate their business management, with special emphasis on accordance to law regulations.

    With our experience, professionalism and knowledge of all legal issues and problematic areas we are ready to carry out the audits professionally, independently and objectively.

  • Representative office or branch office

    In business terminology people often compare representative office with branch office, but between those two there exists a significant difference.

    A branch office is an office established by a company to conduct many operations generally in a foreign country (in this case Croatia) and has legal person status.

    A representative office may be established in Croatia by any foreign entity engaging in business and by any national or international business association. It may be established for the purpose of market research, promotion, provision of information and representation. A representative office is not a legal entity and is considered part of the entity that has established it. It may not carry out operations that the founder naturally performs, but may only carry out activities as ordered by the founder. If a representative office employs Croatian citizens then their labour relations, payrolls and other working conditions are subject to to Croatian law.

    Contest will do financial operations for you, and in a field of tax regulations and legislative regulations will gives you knowledge and experience that you can rely on.
    As your external partner we adjust to your specific needs.
