Tradelicense.cz / Unqualified Trades according to Annex 4

Free Trade Licenses for which no qualification or diploma is required

Free trade licenses fall into the "Výroba, obchod a služby neuvedené; v prílohách 1 až 3 živnostenského zákona" category (so in short, in annex 4 and not in annexes 1-3 of the trade license law).

Trade licenses listed in annex 1- 3 are not of the 'free' type and require diploma's and/or qualifications. Examples are financial / banking services, medicine- and medical related, massage, hair, nail- and skincare services, fresh food and drink production and selling, bar- and restaurant activities.

90% of our foreign clients have activities than use the 'free' type of tradelicenses. For programming, consultancy, translation, trading, teaching no diploma is required (but if you would try to get a work permit, for the same job, doing the same activities, the ministry all of a sudden demands a diploma or certification - another good reason not to get a work permit)
