EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union (EU) that enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate, in a comparable manner, the effects of taxes and benefits on household incomes and work incentives for the population of each country and for the EU as a whole. As well as calculating the effects of actual policies it is also used to evaluate the effects of tax-benefit policy reforms and other changes on poverty, inequality, incentives and government budgets.

During the period 2014-2015, the EUROMOD team (Institute for Social & Economic Research, University of Essex) has co-operated with the researchers at the Institute of Public Finance to incorporate the Croatian system of taxes and benefits into EUROMOD.

The new version of EUROMOD, which was published in the beginning of 2016, covers all 28 EU countries, and is available to all interested researchers. Country Report for Croatia contains the review of tax-benefit system and the details of its implementation in EUROMOD.

The project EUROMOD Croatia has begun in 2013, and will continue on a permanent basis.

In 2018 the model is updated using new datasets and tax-benefit system parameters.

In September 2015, the Institute of Public Finance has also initiated a research project Application of Microsimulation Models in the Analysis of Taxes and Social Benefits in Croatia, financed by the Croatian Science Foundation.
