Tax Man Shuts Popular Hvar Party Bar Carpe Diem

The ‘no mercy’ crack down on Croatia’s grey economy by its Ministry of Finance continues after local media reported on Tuesday that one of the countries most popular summer clubs on Croatia’s premier party island is set to have its doors shut.

Popular celebrity hang out Carpe Diem Beach on the island of Hvar were the latest to feel the full force of the tax authorities on Monday, and will be closed for having over 16,000 EUR more cash in the till than what had been sent through their now mandatory fiscal cash register.

“It looks like Carpe Diem Beach’s closing today was because not 120 kuna (16 EUR), but 120,000 kuna (16,000 EUR) was extra in the till,” said the Minister of Finance Slavko Linic during an interview on RTL television.

Daily Vecernji list spoke to the club’s spokesperson Nenad Hervatin. “On Friday we had a concert (at the bar) from well-known world DJ Solomon, which had extraordinary ticket sales at 200 kuna a ticket. During the evening the tablet which issues the fiscal invoice lost power and connection to the service stopped. It happens often that we lose power andconnection to the server. Sales continued, but invoices were hand written in invoice books which the tax department have certified, and after the invoice blocks ran out, invoices were continued to be written by hand,” said Hervatin.

The club will have to stay closed for the mandatory 5 day period for the offence.
