Steps for Acquiring a Czech Professional Trade Licence

Steps for Acquiring a Czech Professional Trade Licence

Division of Czech Professional Trade Licences

 
 


 
According to the Czech Trade Licensing Act (Act No. 455/1991 Coll.), the business activity is conducted systematically, individually, using one's own name, on one's own responsibility, with a view to make profit and under the conditions laid down under this law. The different professions requiring a trade licence are listed in annexes 1- 4 of the Czech Trade Licensing Act. You can find general information in our article Steps for acquiring a Czech Trade Licence.
 
Trades are divided under the Czech Trades Licensing Act (Act No. 455/1991 Coll.) into notifiable trades (Czech Free Trade Licende with fields of activities), which can be obtained based on notification - unqualified trade with objects of business: Manufacture, trade and services not specified in Annexes 1 to 3 to the Trade Licensing Act, and concession trades, which can only be pursued on the basis of a special business licence – a concession. Notifiable trades are categorised into three further groups: vocational, professional and permitted.
 
Professional trades include activities such as providing or brokering consumer credit, work as an optician, or animals trading. For complete list please see the chart below.
 
In order to acquire the concession for concessionary trades, it is necessary to demonstrate the relevant professional eligibility and in some cases to also meet some additional requirements. Trades that require concessions include operating a travel agency, road freight transport or a security firm employed to protect other people’s property.
