The Free Trade Zones of Bosnia and Herzegovina
Customs Tariffs in BiH, in general, ensure that foreign trade is liberal and without limitations.
Once registered for performing business activities, a legal entity/entrepreneur may perform foreign, as well as domestic, operations.
There are currently four (4) free trade zones in BiH, strategically positioned around major centers of economic activity, which include:
- Free zone Vogošća, Sarajevo
- Free Zone Hercegovina, Mostar
- Free zone Visoko, Visoko
- Free zone Holc-Lukavac
The users of free trading zones do not pay VAT and contributions, with the exception of those related to salaries and wages.
Investors are free to invest capital in a free zone, transfer their profit and re-transfer capital with no charge. One or more domestic or foreign legal entity registered in BiH may create an FTZ.
There are 50 business zones spread across BiH. More information on each of them can be found on the Foreign Investment Promotion Agency of BiH’s website.
