Most EU importers at the border crossing when entering the Republic of Croatia have gradually switched procedure 42 over a T1 transit procedure. EU legislation offers deferral of VAT payment which practically means that a delivery, when entering the EU, is released under the customs declaration with VAT exemption against the customs declaration and the importer pays VAT in his own country thus increasing solvency by enabling a longer due date for tax liability.
A tax payer registers and settles incurred tax liabilities through tax reports in his own country. Customs fees are paid upon customs declaration. Experience has shown that with procedure 42 different contracts on free trade along with certificates such as EUR-1, FORM decrease or fully eliminate customs.
More than often the amount of the debt against the customs declaration – procedure 42 is 0 HRK so that no liquid assets are required to release the goods. Solvency increase achieved through a longer due date for tax liability is certainly a significant advantage of this procedure.
A cleared delivery can be forwarded directly to further buyers whereby transport costs are reduced, there are no additional customs procedures related to the dispatch with a T1 transit procedure all of which makes the time for customs formalities significantly shorter.
