South African desk
We proudly announce that HLB ADRIA has established a South African desk whose purpose is to support South African entrepreneurs and citizens who consider investing, living, working in, or cooperating with Croatia and other countries of the Region.
HLB ADRIA through past cooperation with SA partners operating in Croatia became aware of the need for a one-stop-shop service for support of SA private and business operations in Croatia, especially for those who are establishing the business for the first time.
The desk is led by a native South African HLB Adria partner living both in Croatia and South Africa Mr. Leandro Le Roux who has vast experience in doing business in both South Africa and Croatia. He has local expert support from HLB Adria staff, especially from accountants, tax and legal advisers, and auditors who are also members of Desk.
Feel free to contact us by phone, LinkedIn or direct inquiry through form.
