Selling shares in Czech Republic

Persons who want to sell shares in Czech Republic should know that the procedure requires the payment of the corporate income tax on the capital gains incurred during the transfer
The selling process refers to a transfer of ownership, in which the buyer will be invested with rights derived from owning a proportion of a company’s shares; our team of Czech company formation representatives can offer more details on this matter.

Share transfer taxation in Czech Republic 

It is important to know that the transfer procedure can be exempted of taxation in specific situations. A company which is a tax resident in Czech Republic, the European Union (EU), Norway or Liechtenstein and which sells shares to a subsidiary company, seated also in one of the above mentioned locations, can be exempt from paying the transfer tax
The exemption can also be imposed for the share transfer in which the recipient is a non-EU company. For example, this is applicable when the Czech Republic has signed a treaty for the avoidance of double taxation with the country in which the non-EU company is residing. The rule is also applicable to non-EU subsidiaries which are imposed with a corporate income tax with a minimum value of 12%. 
According to the Czech legislation, the transfer of ownership will also take into account the liabilities incurred by the company, as well as the taxes applicable to these liabilities. 
If a corporation sells its shares in Czech Republic, the gains on the transfer will be taxed with the corporate income tax applicable at a rate of 19%.
