Important: For 2019 and 2020 for Trade License Revenue over 2 M CZKIn 2018, the 60/40 limit was lowered from 2M CZK to 1 M CZK.
For 2019 and 2020, the limit is back to 2M CZK again.
- We highly recommend to book a Business Consultation if you have a Revenue over 2 M CZK because Tax / Social / Health contributions may amount to up to cca 30% of your Revenue and we will look at various scenarios to reduce this burden.
Important: Filing before the end of a tax year / leaving Czech Republic in the middle of a yearFiling an Income Tax Return before the (tax) year is finished is not possible. The earliest occasion to file is in the following January, even if you will leave Czech Republic before the year's end. Also complete de-registration from Tax / Social / Health systems will be possible only after filing the Income Tax Return.
It is possible to already order the Tax Return before the year end - we just will not be able to process and file the Return until January of the next year, although we will be able to tell you during the year whether it makes sense to file and if so, whether you would be entitled to receive anything back from the Tax Office.
Important: Even if you have paid years Social-, Pension- and Heath contributions - there is no way to claim any of those back, even not with a filed Income Tax Return.
