Freelancer business license registration
Starting a business as a freelancer in the Czech Republic requires many formalities, administrative and a lot of communication with the government authorities. In particular, you need to register a business license, provide a business address, sign in for social and health insurance and also register at the tax office. This can be a difficult and time-consuming process for many start-up freelancers. Especially if they are not Czech citizens, because there is even more administrative steps, plus the authorities usually communicate only in a Czech language.
Even after the registration is done, there is a number of restrictions, which can be easily infringed, if a starting freelancer does not know them (database responsibility, insurance and tax rules etc.). In our service, we will also explain all the necessary, so you avoid the unnecessary complications and financial penalties.
If you want to start and run a business in the Czech Republic correctly, entrust us with the whole process. We will be happy to consult everything with you from the start, including the appropriate types of trade licenses, to ensure that your license will be registered exactly according to your needs. We also include the virtual business office address in our packages below, which is required by a law.
Everything will be handled with a single power of attorney, which we will prepare for you after clarifying all the details about your inquiry. All you need to do is one visit of the post office. Once we receive the signed document(s) from you, your trade license will be ready within 5 work days. In the meantime, you can focus your time on your business activities. (e.g. finding clients, fine-tuning your website or marketing).
