  • Accessibility for foreign businessmen

For many people, the simplicity of registering creates concerns. After all, even in 2022, a sizable package of paperwork must be gathered, particularly in comparison to Estonia or the Balkan nations. A hefty packet of paperwork won’t be a problem for you, though, if you have a competent helper with you. A special system, where all paperwork can be received and filed in one location, is also actively being developed in the nation.

Although registration is not the simplest, it is still straightforward enough with a helper to list as one of the benefits of selecting this jurisdiction. Additionally, all of the prerequisites have been established for foreigners, so they are not need to find citizens for registration or have ongoing meetings inside the nation, among other things.

  • Easy doing business

The convenience of conducting business is a fact that is undeniably true since even the statistics support it. Inspections of businesses engaged in trading or contributing traditional services are quite uncommon, but once every 147 years, the Czech enterprise is examined.

Reporting is just one example of how officials’ loyalty is demonstrated. If your business does not pay VAT, even LLC must file one report annually. Thus, you cannot have an accountant on staff and must instead turn to professionals when responsibilities need it.

  • Banks with staff who speaks Ukrainian and Russian

The conduct of commerce is not restricted by the crown. If it is preferred or required, you may create an account for the business in euros as well as in more than ten other currencies.

There are more than 20 banking institutions which employ people who understand Russian and Ukrainian languages.

Types of companies in the Czech Republic

How to launch a business in the Czech Republic

You can start the registration procedure after selecting a legal entity’s structure.

Everything that you need is:

  • Copy of foreign passport
  • Certificate on the absence of previous convictions

Any business must have a “sidlo”, or legal location, which under Czech law may be nominal. For example, for 300–400 € annually, you may rent a “post box.” The essential prerequisite is that you must be able to be reached by government organizations. Therefore, keep in mind that the price of the services covers correspondence when selecting a legal address for a Czech firm.

Additionally, the business needs a bank account. Beforehand, an account had to be opened in advance if the minimum permissible capital, even for an LLC, was to be deposited.

A power of attorney is required if you start a corporation with the aid of an agent. This is practical because the whole process could be accomplished remotely without travelling to the Czech Republic.

So, the Czech Republic is the very favored option among the EU states for starting businesses.
