A branch office of a foreign company is not a Czech legal entity, but functions as the representative of a foreign company and incurs obligations on the foreign company’s behalf. Branch offices are only allowed to engage in business activities which correspond to those of the founder. The branch office must have an appointed director, who is entitled to act on behalf of the foreign company in relation to the branch office. He/she must be registered in the Commercial Register.The law under which the branch’s parent entity was founded also applies to the branch’s internal dealings.
SRO’s are the most common company type established in the Czech Republic. Like in many countries, partners in an SRO are liable for the company’s obligations only up to the capital they originally contributed to the company. In the Czech Republic, SROs are required to start with a minimum registered capital of CZK 200000.
A founding contract, including the company’s statutes, and an issue of shares establishes an AS. Shares can be freely traded without registration in the Czech Republic’s Commercial Register, which makes it attractive if you plan to make your company publicly traded. A Joint Stock Company must have a minimum capital stock of CZK 2 million. At least 30% of that amount must be paid at the time of incorporation.
