Entrepreneurs and micro and small legal entities with yearly earnings of up to RSD 50,000,000 are free from paying the local community tax for displaying the firm on commercial premises. Exceptions are entrepreneurs and legal entities engaged in the following activities:
- property and personal insurance
- production and trade of oil and oil derivatives
- production and wholesale trade in tobacco products
- cement production
- postal, mobile, and telephone services
- electricity industry
- games of chance and night bars and discos.
Therefore, if the business entity does not engage in any of the listed activities and during the past year did not achieve an annual income of more than RSD 50,000,000, there is no obligation to pay the municipal tax for registering the company.
