The Croatian Parliament has decided to abolish the 6% tax on mobile network service revenues as of 1 January 2012.
On 1 August 2009 a 6% tax was introduced for all mobile operators in Croatia as a measure against the economic crisis. The tax was applicable on revenues generated by mobile services, i.e. voice, SMS and MMS, and was payable by the mobile operator.
Vipnet, the Croatian subsidiary of Telekom Austria Group, recorded a mobile tax expense of EUR 15.2 million in the full year 2010.
