Looking to sell goods into the Czech Republic? Here’s everything you need to know about Czech VAT registration, Returns, Fiscal representation and your legal obligations within Czech Republic.
There are certain scenario’s that trigger VAT registration in the Czech Republic as well as distance selling thresholds. For non-European businesses selling goods to Czech consumers the threshold is nil and you will need to be VAT registered before you sell goods to the Czech Republic.
For European businesses selling goods to consumers in Czech Republic there is a distance selling threshold of CZK 1,140,000 per annum applied and you will not need to register until you reach the threshold.
However this all changes if you begin to store goods in Czech Republic, even through schemes such as the Amazon Pan European Program which allows the free movement of goods between Amazon’s warehouses. If you store goods, regardless of how many sold you will be required to register for VAT right away.
The registration process can take up to 12 weeks to complete and could be longer for non-eu businesses. Fiscal representation is not required for Czech Republic registrations.
