NUMBER AND STRUCTURE OF BUSINESS ENTITIES, BY COUNTIES Situation as on 31 December, 2021

The First Release titled the Number and Structure of Business Entities, by Counties, was supplemented in 1999 by data taken over from registers and administrative records of other state institutions such as the Register of Tax Payers, the Fina’s Register of Annual Financial Reports and the Register of Active Beneficiaries of Pension Insurance.

The content of the First Release has been changed in order to achieve as good an understanding as possible of the data on the number and structure of business entities, while linking enabled the presentation of legal entities by activity and type of ownership as well as supplementing the data on legal entities by data on crafts and trades and free lances.

The data are presented according to the territorial constitution published in the Act on Territories of Counties, Towns and Municipalities in the Republic of Croatia (NN, Nos 86/06, 125/06, 16/07, 95/08, 46/10, 145/10, 37/13, 44/13, 45/13 and 110/15). The basic Notes on methodology, given at the end of the First Release, include the definitions and notes necessary in using the data.
