CROATIA: QR Code as a Mandatory Element on Fiscal Receipt

Fiscal law has been applied in the Republic of Croatia since January 1st 2013. Fiscal law encourages citizens to participate in tax control by checking fiscal receipt via web app.

During the past six years, it is been noticed that entering all the digits of a unique receipt identifier (JIR), or issuer security code (ZKI), is quite difficult, with great potential of making errors because of the large number of characters that must be entered.

In order to make checks more convenient for citizens, in August last year, the Ministry of Finances introduced additional requirements for fiscal receipts. As a result, the QR code will be a mandatory receipt element.

However, at this moment, the content of QR is not clearly defined. There are no information if JIR and ZKI will be stored in both the QR code and on receipt, or if they will be only transferred into the QR code itself. It is also unclear if the QR code will contain some additional information.

The adjustment period for the new fiscal requirements is until January 1st 2021. Further clarification are expected during the current year.
