How to pay taxes to Bank Accounts of the Czech Tax Offices, in 3 steps

or: How to compile the bank account number for the right kind of tax at the right tax office

Not even paying taxes in Czech Republic is simple. There used to be 199 taxoffices, each with their own bank account. Since 1.1.2014 those have been grouped into 14 taxoffices, one for each 'kraj' (province), so the amount of bank accounts also got reduced to 14.

Having 14 bank accounts has the consequence, that if you move to a different city in a different province, you will have to pay taxes to a different bank account!

To make matters more complicated, the first digits of the bank account (the 'pre-number') are determined by the kind of taxes to be paid! See step 2. (this has not changed from the old situation.)

A list of how the old taxoffices are grouped now can be found here: 45102-12-JD-Priloha_c.1.xls

1: You will need to know your DIČ and which Tax Office you belong to.

If you have a company or trade license and have no idea, or want to check, follow the instructions on this page:

Note: If you are a private individual, trade license holder or employee it is possible that as a foreigner you are not registered at the tax office at all. In that case we first need to register you in order to get the DIČ. There is no way to check online your Tax ID, this information is only available at the tax office. In case you have a rodné číslo (Birth Number) then the DIČ should be equal to the rodné číslo (should: there are foreigners who do not have a rodné číslo or got it later than their DIČ, and so the numbers are different - this must be corrected if this is the case.)

2: Select the right account pre-number for the kind of tax you want to pay
