STARTING A COMPANY: DEFINITION?
Limited liability company (LLC/d.o.o.) is a type of company founded by one or more persons who wish to operate under a common name. This is the most frequent form of company in the Republic of Croatia, and can be established by one or more natural or legal persons who invest in previously agreed share capital, which according to the Companies Act cannot amount to less than HRK 20,000.00.
