How to register for VAT in the Czech Republic

2 kinds of registration are possible – voluntarily or required by law. Difference is explained in the separate section on VAT registration.

Registration request must contain certain details as
  • name and seat of the company
  • list of the other VAT numbers and registration dates in the European Union
  • bank account information
  • An original extract from the Commercial Register
  • VAT Statement
  • Description of the nature of the business

Request must be submitted electronically on the portal of the Czech Tax Administration.

When submitted electronically, then scan of additional documents must be added. All documents must be translated into Czech.  Legally certified translation is required.

Original documents must be sent by post to Tax office. It is also helpful to submit together with the original documents a copy of the electronic VAT registration so that the tax administration has no problems identifying the connection between electronic and paper submissions.

The Czech Tax Administration has 30 days to process the VAT registration request. If any information is lacking or there is a mistake or even uncertainty about any details, tax administration must send an official request for supplementary information.
