1-hour Business ConsultationWe highly recommend booking a 1 hour of business consultation before registering a Trade License. This can be done online, and you select a day / hour that is suitable for you. The consultation can also take place by email.
We will guide you in the process from your idea to a working business in Czech Republic, including topics such as Accounting, Taxes, VAT, health insurance, residence permit / visas and any other question you may have.
Registration at the Taxoffice, Filing a Corporate Income Tax ReturnAfter the Trade License registration is complete, we will register you at the tax office for Income Tax (and optionally for VAT). The registration for Personal Income Tax (PIT) is included in the price of the package.
A Trade License owner must file a Personal Income Tax Return each year, even if the business has had no activities.
Costs of the Income Tax Return depend on how much documents need to be processed, but starts at 5.000 CZK.
Registration at the Social Office, Public Health Care / Commercial Health InsuranceAfter the Trade License registration is complete, further we will register you at the social office and for Health Insurance. These registrations are included in the price of the package.
While everybody needs to pay Social Contributions, not every foreigner can enroll into Public Health Care. EU-Citizens are obligated to do so, but 3rd-Country Nationals usually have Commercial Health Insurance. We always make sure you have the right insurance, and this service is included in the price of the package.
VAT RegistrationIf the expected turnover in CZ in 12 consecutive months is over 1.000.000 CZK, it is obligatory to register for VAT. If the turnover is smaller, you can choose to voluntarily register for VAT.
When providing / using goods or services from the EU, a VAT-registration is almost always an obligation.
The VAT regulations in Czech Republic have been adjusted almost every year. We have written a rather extensive article on VAT / trading in the EU, which you can find here:.
