Registration requirements for an online Czech business

An e-shop registered in Czech Republic can be set up by both natural persons and legal entities. The applicable legislation allows foreign investors to register an e-commerce business in this country. If the foreign entity is represented by a branch operating in Czech Republic, it is necessary to obtain a trade license, issued by the Czech Trade License Office, a requirement applicable to Czech entities as well. Our team of specialists in company registration in Czech Republic can assist foreign businessmen with advice on the licenses imposed in this case. 
Products and services sold through on-line platforms are governed by a consumer contract, which establishes the legal grounds between the operator and the purchaser. As a general rule, a consumer contract should be concluded under the legislation of the country in which the consumer resides, in this case, in Czech Republic
Businessmen can contact our team in Czech Republic for consultancy services on other registration requirements applicable to an e-commerce business
