Excise duty on tobacco products to increase in Croatia from March

From March 1, the Croatian government will raise excise duties on tobacco products, meaning higher prices for cigarettes, tobacco or heated tobacco products or e-cigarettes, which have recently become an increasingly popular alternative to classic cigarettes. [...] The increase in excise duties on cigarettes is no surprise, but it is interesting that the largest increase in the state tax will occur on heated tobacco products where excise duty increases from 800 to 1,400 Kuna per kilogram. This is an increase in excise duty by as much as 75 percent, and such a sudden jump in excise duty on a tobacco product has not been recorded in Croatia so far.

Cigarettes increase in price from today

A packet of cigarettes in Croatia will cost you two Kunas more for one packet from today. The Regulation on excise duties on tobacco and tobacco products comes into force. "According to our calculations, this raise should not result in a price increase of more than two Kuna," Finance Minister Zdravko Maric commented.
