na ruke; kod
Explanation:
If used in address before the name of the person to whose house, office etc the letter is sent => na ruke, e.g.
Na ruke g. Pere Perica
"Prevodi d.o.o."
If used before the name of the office => kod, e.g.
Pero Peric
kod "Prevodi d.o.o."
Both are very rarely used, as it is quite clear if you just write
Pero Peric
"Prevodi d.o.o."
what you had in mind.
(in english, it is usally
Pero Peric
c/o "Prevodi d.o.o."
meaning that the firm takes care of routing the letter to the right person ).
