Czech-Republic- Austria-Double-Taxation-Treaty.jpgAustrian investors who are interested in opening a company in Czech Republic can benefit from the stipulations of the treaty for the avoidance of double taxation signed by authorities of the both states. The double taxation treaty (DTA) was signed in 2007 and it stipulates the way in which income taxes will be imposed to natural persons and legal entities operating on one of the two markets. Our team of Czech company incorporation specialists can provide assistance on the main provisions of the treaty


Taxes covered by the Czech- Austrian DTA

The DTA is applicable for income and capital, such as the total income, total capital, elements of the income, or taxes on income which can derive from movable or immovable property. According to Article 2(2), the Czech Republic- Austria DTA is also applicable to taxes from wages and those applicable to capital appreciation. 
The following video offers a short presentation on the double taxation treaty signed by Austria and Czech Republic

Austria imposes the following taxes
the income tax;
the corporation tax;
the land tax;
the tax applicable to agricultural/forestry companies;
the tax on vacant plots. 
Czech Republic imposes the next taxes

It is important to know that the differences between the taxes applied by each country are an effect of the local legislation but, according to Article 2(4) of the convention, the contracting states are obliged to apply the provisions of the DTA to similar taxes prescribed by the local law; our team of Czech company formation representatives can provide more details on this matter.

Provisions of the Czech Republic – Austria DTA

Austrian companies operating in Czech Republic are taxed under the laws of the state in which the companies have their headquarters and they are liable to taxation in Czech Republic only in respect to the income gained in this country. At the same time, it is important to know that Czech authorities can tax Austrian companies only if they operate through a permanent establishment.
