Complications with the opening of a tourist guide in the case of Saša Radoš Jagešić

first_imgSaša Radoš Jagešić lives in Zagreb and for the last two years he has been working as a tourist guide for the area of ​​Zagreb and Zagreb County, for which he has passed a course, ie a license. “On Saturday I move to Pula, Istria is a tourist paradise and with knowledge of English and French and the experience of a tourist guide in Zagreb, I decided to make it my future business career, but this time I do not want to work for an agency but open my own business and become entrepreneur”, Points out Rados Jagesic.

As a reason, she stated that by acquiring a license for a tourist guide, all future rights of unemployed persons are automatically lost in accordance with the status of tourist guides as an independent activity. She has been unemployed for some time now, and since her husband received a job offer in Pula, they decided to move from Zagreb to Istria. The job of a tour guide became her lifestyle and proved to be a dream job in which she found herself and decided to dedicate herself exclusively to it. But her problems with opening a business don’t stop there either. “What worries me the most is that now it has started to be said that we will not even be able to open lump-sum trades for tourist guides because a free profession cannot run a lump-sum trade. And I’m already arranging jobs for the season and I’m saying I’m going to issue invoices through trades, so then it would be very inconvenient if I can’t open it”, Points out Rados Jagesic. The competent institutions should react as soon as possible about the evaluation of the status of tourist guides, because it is only a matter of time before we hear a similar story as with Sasa Radoš Jagešić. “A lot of people I talked to, my colleagues, agree that this problem can be completely solved if tourist guides stop being guided by a free profession “, explains Radoš Jagešić. “In fact, this whole story with the return of incentives and unemployment benefits is the most frightening, because in that way they consider three and a half thousand of us liars. They believe that when we entered the records, we all lied that we did not have a company, trade and the like. According to them, we are obviously liars who exploit the state.” As her life path took her to Pula, otherwise her hometown, she decided to become self-employed and open a business there. She made a business plan, enrolled in a guide course for the Pula and Istria area, started collecting all the paperwork for CES incentives for self-employment, but then she ran into a dead end. To make matters more absurd, last year in Zagreb, although she has a license for a tourist guide, she earned unemployment benefits for three months like all other tourist guides in the whole of Croatia, except in Istria, where this is not an individual case but a rule we have already written. Unfortunately, we are again witnessing an absurd complication with tourist guides, and a new example this time comes from Istria, more precisely from Pula. Let’s start from the beginning, the story goes like this. LOUD THINKING / IVA SILLA, SECRET ZAGREB: SO WHILE IT GOES, IT GOESlast_img
