The Czech Republic has become a very open country since 1989, enabling not only Czech citizens, but also foreigners to live and work here freely. The government and the parliament are gradually introducing the necessary laws which should reduce the formalities that foreigners have to comply with when they want to run businesses here, be it on a trade licence or as the owner of a company.

On the other hand, the Czech Republic requires something from its citizens as well as from foreigners working here. This primarily entails respect for the law and adherence of the rules and customs that exist here. The country welcomes the efforts of those who decide to stay and discover the Czech culture and language. Speaking Czech may prove necessary during official or business meetings. These pages should help when establishing a company and arranging everything necessary in running a business.
