Companies not settled in Czech

If you import goods into Czech Republic and afterward sell them localy or in EU (these are all Amazon eshops) – or if you move goods from EU to Czech Republic and sell them locally, VAT registration is required before you make first sale. Check VAT registration.

Limit for distance sellers

There is no need to be VAT registered in Czech, if you sold goods to Czech clients as a distant seller (e-commerce), if the valued does not exceed 1 140 000,- CZK (about 45 000,- Euro) yearly. If you have such a high sales, you should be VAT registered in the time when this limit is exceeded.
Limit for distant seller VAT registration in Slovakia is 35 000,- Euro sales during a calendar year. See more at e-commerce expansion.

VAT Registration Thresholds for companies who have a seat in the Czech Republic

According to Czech VAT law a company should register for VAT if turnover exceeds 1.000.000,- CZK  in 12 consecutive months. So even if a company did not ask for VAT registration, it becomes automatically liable the month after the turnover limit is exceeded. The company should ask for VAT registration within 15 days following the month when the turnover was exceeded.

Another VAT threshold is triggered when a Czech company buys goods from an EU provider. If the value of the goods is over 326.000,- CZK in a calendar year, then VAT registration is automatically needed.

There is no VAT threshold applied if a company is based outside of the Czech Republic and imports goods with the Czech Republic as the country of entry. VAT registration is automatically needed in this case.

VAT thresholds related to taxable documents:

  • If a bill exceeds 10.000,- CZK including VAT, a normal invoice must be issued.
  • In cases where the amount paid is lower than 10.000,- CZK , a simplified tax document can be provided.
