Business Visa & Residence Permit Services

Alexio offers document prepration for Visa- and Residence Permit Applications / Extensions for:

  • Business long-term D-Visa Application for non-EU,
  • Family long-term D-Visa Application for non-EU,

Alexio itself does not offer Visa applications for Student- or Employment Visas, but we do cooperate with a partner company that does nothing else than Visa services and they provide assistance at the Foreign Police.

Business Visa Extension - after the first year in CZ (for non-EU Citizens)

Especially Business Visa Extensions (in fact, it is a transition from a 'visa' to a 'long-term residence permit') require a lot of accounting documents and generally speaking are quite complicated. Many people underestimate the procedure and how long it will take to get all required documents of all authorities. If you throught a Business Visa Application was easy - an Extension is not(!).

Talk to us at least 2 months before the current Business Visa expires, and make sure you have earned enough income else you will run a realistic risk you won't be able to extend at all.

NEW 2017 RULES: Changing Purpose of Stay of long-term Residence Permit (for non-EU Citizens)

Careful, careful: Many people who came as a student (in other words: the purpose of stay is study) are thinking of starting a business after they graduate. It used to be possible to change the purpose of stay from 'student' to 'business' after 2 years. Newly, it is only possible after a stay of at least 5 (FIVE) years. Read the details on the website of the Ministry:

Foreigner's Health Insurance and Public Health Care

The Foreign Police will only accept health insurance of a czech insurance company. We offer Commercial Health Insurance from all large insurance companies (Maxima / AXA/ PVZP / Uniqa), as well as registration into the Czech Public Health Care (VZP)

As a rule of thumb, 3rd Country Nationals should have 'Complex Care' Commercial Health Insurance and EU Citizens should enroll into Public Health Care. For more information, and buying online commercial health insurance, see Czech Health Insurance for Foreigners

IMPORTANT NOTE: US Citizens on a Business Visa, must enroll into Public Health Care, starting 1.5.2016

Alexio DOES NOT send invitation letters

Alexio does not send invitation letters for visa applications. Apply for a tourist visa instead,
or have us form the company remotely and then apply for a business visa directly, based on this company.

Finding accomodation / residence address

Alexio can not help you with finding rental accomodation, but it does have a partner that specializes in accomodation for foreigners. Contact us for more details

A Virtual Office for a business / trade license can *not* be used as Residence Address for visa purposes.
This is valid for any Virtual Office (not just ours) despite what the provider may tell you.

There are landlords that provide the proof of accomodation (for a fee) before you arrive so you can apply for a visa. However, in case it is not possible to stay at / rent these particular addresses after arrival, most likely it is a fake address. It can be that such a 'landlords' register 50 people at that same address - once such an address is known at the Foreign Police, most likely your visa will be denied.

To avoid any risk, look for rental apartments on S Reality.cz or Bez Realitky.cz.
Use Google translate for the czech sections, since there are much less apartments listed in the english section.
If you prefer help with the searching: contact us and we'll forward your request to our acoomodation partner.

"Client": The person or company that orders / pays for Alexio services

"Pricelist": the complete pricelist on http://alexio.cz/pricelist/pricelist.html

Invoice, Proof of payment

You will receive an invoice / proof of payment for our services. When paying in cash, we will issue a receipt.
Our services are tax deductable expenses and can be put in the accounting.

Invoicing in CZK or EUR

Listed prices are without 21% VAT.
There are payment options without VAT as well. This needs to be indicated by the Client in advance.

Prices listed in EURO on the pricelist are based on an exchange rate of 25 CZK / EUR, and only an indication. When issuing an invoice, Alexio will use the then current CNB exchange rate + 3.5% conversion charges. As of June 2015, the current exchange rate is 27.3 CZK / EUR.

Payment Methods

Payment can be in cash, by (international IBAN / SEPA) bank transfer, Paypal or Credit Card payment.

Payment is in full, in advance. Alexio does not accept payment in parts.

Deposit Invoice

For some services (for example, but not limited to, one-off Accounting / Administration / Visa Tasks, SRO Formation, Trade License Registration or once-a-year Income Tax Returns), Alexio issues a Deposit Invoice, in particular for new clients, clients that do not take our monthly / quarterly accounting services or clients not / no longer based in Czech Republic.

By paying it, the client acknowledges that there can be a Final Invoice in case there will be extra / additional work / hours in addition to what was indicated in the pricelist / agreed at time of the Deposit payment. In case there will be no extra / additional work / hours, the Deposit Invoice will cover all of the agreed services.

We do not start our services before receiving the Deposit.

Once started, we do not refund paid deposit for services if the client decides that he does not need the services / cancels the process. If during the processing Alexio determines that some services ordered by the client are not necessary or superfluous, then Alexio will inform the client and discuss which services are relevant and the possibilties of a partial refund.

Unless a fixed / other sum has been agreed in writing / by email with the client before starting the job, the total costs for the services are calculated according to this pricelist.

Poor Payment behaviour, Reminders

Due date is 7 days after the issue date.

By Czech law, we are entitled to charge 0.5% penalty interest per day + reminder costs after the Due date has passed.
First Reminder is sent 7 days after the Due date.
Second Reminder is sent 14 days after the Due date, and 250 CZK + 14 days of interest will be charged.
a Final Reminder is send 21 days after the Due date, 2* 250 CZK is charged + 21 days of interest.

Further refusal / inability to pay may lead to debt collection by an external party.
All related costs will be invoiced to the client, including penalty interest calculated from the Due date on the original invoice.

Services are halted if one or more invoices are in the Final Reminder stage.
Re-enabling services is possible after all open invoices (not only the overdue one), penalty interests and related costs have been paid in full. In extreme cases, such as recurring poor payment behaviour may lead to Alexio charging for services in advance, or terminating services altogether.

In case the client is unable to pay (in time) we recommend to contact us as soon as possible. We are willing to waive (part of) the penalty interest and/or extend the due date if the client communicates / cooperates. Refusal to communicate, including ignoring Reminders, will always make things worse. Fair play pays off.

Questions / Disputes

In case the client feels that invoicing has been incorrect or he did not receive the correct (amount of / level of) services, we ask to respond as soon as possible.

Czech authorities may be extremely difficult to deal with; things may take (much) longer than expected and additional documents may be required. We do not claim to be perfect; it is possible that we did make a mistake somewhere. However more often than not, the problem is somewhere else.

So do not hesitate to contact us (preferably by email). Many questions / assumptions can be clarified by simply contacting us and listen to what we have to say - before the situation escalates into a dispute. Being rude or refusal to pay our invoice without any notice / communication because of (assumed) incorrectness of our services and/or invoice is not a solution.

We strive to solve any issue quickly and in a satisfactory way for both client and Alexio.

Disclaimer

By paying the (deposit) invoice, the client acknowledges he agrees with the Alexio Pricing and Payment policy.

Prices may change without prior notice. Individual offers may differ from this pricelist.

This Pricing & Payment policy is subject to Czech legislation.
