3,471 businesses opened through Hitro.hr one stop shop service in H1

A total of 3,471 businesses were opened through the Hitro.hr one stop shop service in the first half of 2016, the Financial Agency (FINA) says.

Of those, 2,196 were simple limited liability companies or so-called "10 kuna companies", 1,164 were limited liability companies and 111 were crafts businesses.

If companies continue to be established at the present rate, FINA expects that some 6,940 will have been established by the end of 2016, which would be an increase of 20% compared with 2015.

Last year 5,778 companies and crafts businesses were established through the Hitro.hr service, which was 4.8% fewer than in 2014.
