Note that the definition of the MGI / Balkans coordinate systems ([http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/31275/ EPSG:31275], [http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/31276/ EPSG:31276], [http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/31277/ EPSG:31277]) available via [http://spatialreference.org http://spatialreference.org] is incomplete because this database does not contain any definition of the geodetic datum. If the geodetic datum is missing, the difference from the true location will be even few hundreds of meters. In fact, if only one datum shift parameter is missing or is in error, transformation of coordinates will lead to frustrations. On the other hand, even if you correctly set-up the (global) coordinate system parameters, you will not be able to achieve precision better than 0.5 meters (see above).
