Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions after the video? Here are some of our clients’ most frequently asked questions about freelancing in the Czech Republic.

  • Is it necessary to be an EU citizen for these services?

    Yes, you do need to be an EU passport holder for these specific services. If you’re a non-EU passport holder, you’ll have to go through the visa processes. Don’t worry, however - we can help here, too: just go to our services for Non-EU citizens.

  • Do I have to pay anything in advance?

    No, we never ask for payments in advance. Instead, we invoice you only after you see tangible results in your process. For example: after you receive your trade license, after your virtual address is set up, after Light VAT registration, etc.

  • What do I get with the Virtual Business Address?

    With a Virtual Business Address, Pexpats essentially becomes your virtual post office. We receive posts and on request can even open, scan, translate, and handle all official communications. You get consultation along the way, and resolution of matters when they arise. All with minimal interruption to your already busy schedule.

  • How do I extend my Virtual Business Address after 1 year?

    We always follow up with you well before you need to renew your Virtual Business Address. We’ll email to inform you when the period is concluding, and, if agreed, send you an invoice after renewal.

  • What’s the process of opening a banking account?

    We will invoice you only after opening the bank account. You will have the contract in-hand, your account number, and access to internet banking before you pay us anything.

  • What is Light VAT? Do I need to register for it?

    Light VAT registration is mandatory if you invoice EU-registered companies that are registered out of the Czech Republic. It does NOT mean that you will have to pay any additional VAT. However, you must report Light VAT monthly.

  • Do I need to become a tax resident in the Czech Republic?

    To avoid double-taxation from some EU countries, it’s necessary to become a Tax Resident in the Czech Republic. This requires among other conditions a continuous 180 days proof of stay in the country.

  • How much of the process can be done remotely?

    Nearly everything. We arrange business license and address, residency, and everything you need to get started as a Czech Tax Resident. All under Power of Attorney and without you having to leave home or the office. We’ll consult on exactly what you need and resolve matters based on your unique situation.

  • Do I pay for the initial consultation?

    No. Simply choose a package and fill out a simple questionnaire. We’ll get back to you ASAP about your free 40-minute consultation session or video presentation.

  • Are there any additional charges or fees in the packages?

    The only additional fees in these packages come with the listed annual subscription for proof of accommodation. This subscription fee remains fixed and will never increase from the day you begin your package.

  • Is after-service support included in the packages?

    Yes. With each package, there is always free after-service support available. Anything you might need related to your services, from complications to additional consultations, comes at no additional cost beyond the price of the package.
