VAT-in-Czech-Republic.jpgCzech Republic became a member state of the European Union (EU) in 2004; as such, the state had to follow EU’s tax directives, in accordance with the European Union’s legal framework. Foreign investors interested in opening a company here should know that from the 1st of January 2015, the value added tax (VAT) legislation changed, in the sense that the Czech government introduced a new reduced VAT, applicable at the rate of 10% for a certain category of products. Our Czech company formation specialists can provide you with the main provisions of the VAT legislation and can offer you assistance for the VAT registration procedures followed by both local and foreign companies in Czech Republic

VAT regulations in Czech Republic 

The amended VAT legislation came into force from the beginning of 2015, bringing several modifications. Companies involved in radio and television broadcasting services, as well as those with operations in the field of telecommunications and electronics are now part of the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS), which refers to the fact that such companies are entitled to pay VAT in the country of the recipient of services.

Czech VAT registration 

The VAT in Czech Republic is administered by the Financni Urad, the local taxation office. The Czech Republic applies the legislation of the non-resident VAT trading, meaning that both companies from EU and outside the EU space can register for VAT in Czech Republic without opening a company on the territory of the country.
