Czech Self-employment for Expats!
You may be used to calling it self-employment, independent worker, sole proprietor, one-man business, freelancer, external contractor, sole trader, private or individual entrepreneur, or LLC, but in Czech Republic this is known as Živnostenský List (Živno for short) or a Trade License, which makes you an Osoba Samostatně Výdělečně Činná - OSVČ (An independently earning person).
One of the best ways to confidently start a Self-Employed business in Czech Republic is to Book a Consultation so you fully understand
- Why a Trade License and not another business type
- What you can and can't do with a Trade License
- how much Tax / Social / Health you are going to pay,
- Whether you need to register for VAT
- Invoicing abroad in foreign currencies
- what documents are required for registration of a trade license,
- which different steps the registration process has,
- how to apply for a visa / residence permit
- how to set up and use the Datova Schranka
- and most of all: what not to do!
Our typical client is a consultant, programmer or IT specialist, most often working from Czech Republic for a foreign company (in the EU or USA) with Revenues between 50.000 and 200.000 Euros (Dollars). Also the last few years we have more and more digital nomads as client.
