AmCham has dealt with tax policy issues for years and has so far issued sixteen recommendations on how to improve the tax system.
This year, AmCham also published a position paper entitled "Recommendations for the Tax System Reform in 2023" that was presented at the conference.
The paper sets out recommendations for further reducing the tax burden aimed at attracting more investments and achieving greater competitiveness of Croatian employers in attracting and retaining employees.
Krešimir Lipovšćak, Crowe Partner, spoke about „Additional Opportunities for Employee Retention “, and presented several recommendations covering employee physical and mental health benefits, housing cost and sustainable energy tax reliefs.
In response to the tax reform recently announced by the Croatian government, Minister of Finance Marko Primorac emphasized that "Taxation policy is key to achieving sustainable development goals because it affects the economic environment in which investment, employment, and innovation take place. Tax policy plays an important role in strengthening social security and helping the most socially vulnerable groups as well as relieving the economy and increasing its competitiveness."
