Every country regulates, by its own laws, the degree of freedom and conveniences offered to foreign, and not infrequently, to its own investors.
The statutory system regulating free zones in Serbia exists through the Law on Free Zones ( “Official Gazette RS” No. 62/06) and Customs Law (“Official Gazette RS”, No. 73/2003, 61/2005, 85/2005-other law and 63/2006- corrected other law), as well as through subordinate legal acts delegated to these laws. Individual issues related to the zones operation are considered in special laws, system laws for some other areas, such as taxes, foreign exchange policies, construction, insurance, etc.
