first_imgIn the amendment of the Government, it is proposed to extend the deadline for making the Decision on the amount of the tourist tax by two months. Namely, in the final bill on the tourist tax as the final deadline was defined on July 15, 2019, and is now extended to September 15, 2019. Povećana stopa za obračun plaćanja članarine u turističkim zajednicama za banke i telekomunikacijske tvrtke. Većina županijskih turističkih zajednica imati će udvostručene prihode.  Also, Article 37 of the Final Proposal of the Law on Tourist Tax determined its entry into force on the eighth day from the day of its publication in the Official Gazette, but now it is proposed how the entry into force of the said law relates to the day of its publication. adopt an ordinance prescribing the minimum and maximum amount of tourist tax. Pored zadaća iz stavka 1. ovoga članka, lokalne turističke zajednice koje ostvaruju preko 1.000.000 komercijalnih noćenja godišnje mogu izvršavati i sljedeće zadaće vezane uz marketing: odnosi s javnošću, stvaranje, održavanje i redovno kreiranje sadržaja na mrežnoj stra nici i profilima društvenih mreža, definiranje smjernica i standarda za oblikovanje turističkih promotivnih materijala, uspostavljanje marketinške infrastrukture temeljene na informatičkim tehnologijama, provođenje aktivnosti strateškog i operativnog marketinga (brending destinacije, online i offline aktivnosti, internetske stranice i profili društvenih mreža, sajmovi, studijska putovanja, prezentacije, partnerstva, sponzorstva i slično), koordinacija i provedba udruženog oglašavanja na lokalnoj razini, obavljanje i drugih poslova propisanih ovim Zakonom ili drugim propisom.“. Slijedom navedenoga, daje se prethodna suglasnost predstavniku Vlade Republike Hrvatske za prihvaćanje amandmana Kluba zastupnika HDZ-a, od 10. travnja 2019. godine, na članak 32. stavak 2. Konačnog prijedloga zakona o turističkim zajednicama i promicanju hrvatskog turizma, u cijelosti, na način da isti glasi:  Također prihvaćen je i amandman zastupnika Ivana Šipića kojim se predlaže da HTZ sredstva iz fonda za turistički nedovoljno razvijena područja s kontinenta raspodjeljuje regionalnim turističkim zajednicama koje ostvaruju izvorni prihod od turističke pristojbe i članarine manji od 500 tisuća kuna. Kako ističu iz Vlade RH, amandmani se prihvaćaju iz razloga što je turistička članarina neporezno davanje i moguće je očekivati njezino daljnje smanjenje, dok se očekuje rast prihoda iz turističke pristojbe, a što će biti rezultat povećanih aktivnosti turističkog sektora i turističkih zajednica.  By the way, the Laws have already passed the second reading in the parliamentary procedure, and the adoption of which should improve the development of Croatian tourism. The Government of the Republic of Croatia accepted the amendment of Domagoj Mikulić, Member of the Croatian Parliament, to Article 19, paragraph 2 and Article 20, paragraph 1, which proposed that the amount of sojourn tax for development projects and programs for creating new tourism programs in underdeveloped tourism areas increases from 2.5% to 3.5%. Omogućuje se lokalnim turističkim zajednicama koje ostvaruju preko 1.000.000 komercijalnih noćenja i izvršavanje zadaća vezanih uz marketing The Tourist Tax Act enters into force immediately on the day of publication Klub zastupnika HDZ-a podnio je amandman na Konačni prijedlog zakona o turističkim zajednicama i promicanju hrvatskog turizma, na članak 32. stavak 2., kojim se lokalnim turističkim zajednicama koje ostvaruju određeni broj noćenja daje mogućnost izvršavanja zadaća vezanih uz marketing. Nakon analize predmetnog amandmana predložilo se usvajanje amandmana u cijelosti. S obzirom da neke turističke zajednice ostvaruju preko 80% nekomercijalnih noćenja neophodno je naglasiti da se broj noćenja odnosi isključivo na komercijalna noćenja te je u tom smislu broj noćenja smanjen sa 2.000.000 na 1.000.000. Predloženim rješenjem omogućuje se lokalnim turističkim zajednicama koje ostvaruju preko 1.000.000 komercijalnih noćenja i izvršavanje zadaća vezanih uz marketing. Article 32 of the Final Proposal of the Law on Tourist Tax stipulates that the County Assemblies, ie the City Assembly of the City of Zagreb should make decisions on the amount of the tourist tax by 15 July 2019. Before making the mentioned decisions, it is necessary to adopt an ordinance which will prescribe the lowest and highest amount of tourist tax. Therefore, the County Assemblies and the City Assembly of the City of Zagreb should have enough time to make decisions on the amount of tourist tax, given that it is necessary to obtain the opinion of local tourist boards and the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb, said the Ministry of Tourism. With regard to Article 12, paragraph 6, in the sense of that paragraph, not all revenues that can be generated by the tourist board are considered revenues, but only revenues from the sojourn tax and membership fees that are considered as original revenues. Since paragraph 8 of the said article defines what is considered as original income, it is necessary to add paragraph 6 to paragraph 4 in addition to paragraph 4, they conclude from the Ministry of Tourism. Što znači da će sada djelatnosti elektroničkih komunikacija i banke plaćali članarinu po stopi od 0,12920, a ne, kako je prvotno bilo predloženo, po stopi od 0,09690. Kako ističu iz Vlade RH, Amandmani se prihvaćaju iz razloga što djelatnost telekomunikacija i bankarski sektor imaju direktnu ekonomsku korist od turizma povećanjem potreba za uslugama jednog i drugog sektora. Amandmanom Kluba zastupnika HDZ-a u Hrvatskome saboru, predloženo je da se djelatnost Elektroničkih komunikacija i banaka za prihode u bilanci iz skupine “Prihod od provizija i naknada” razvrstaju iz treće u drugu skupinu. Amandmanom Kluba zastupnika Stranke rada i solidarnosti i nezavisnih zastupnika u Hrvatskome saboru, predloženo je brisanje članka 7. stavka 7. prema kojem osoba plaća članarinu na prihod iz samo pretežite djelatnosti, a ne po prihodu za sve djelatnosti po kojima je obveznik. Člankom 8. stavkom 2. je pravilno određeno da se članarina plaća na ukupan prihod po svim djelatnostima za koje je osoba obveznik, ali da može platiti po stopi koja je određena za pretežitu djelatnost, ako je to za nju povoljnije. At the 155th session of the Government on Thursday, the Government of the Republic of Croatia gave its consent to the adoption of certain amendments by members of parliament to three tourist laws – the Tourist Tax Act, the Tourist Boards Act and the Promotion of Croatian Tourism Act.  Increased amount of sojourn tax for development projects and programs for creating new tourist programs in underdeveloped tourist areas  Extension of the deadline for making the Decision on the amount of the tourist tax last_img read more
