Why Czech Republic
Growing Interest in Cross-Border E-Commerce
Interest in cross-border e-commerce is growing among Czech customers.
Mobile Phone Access
Recently, smartphone usage in the Czech Republic has grown in popularity. This means larger screens and access to faster and more reliable internet connections, which has led to a better e-commerce experience.
Setting Up to Launch
To establish your brand in Czech Republic as a non-resident importer, you must obtain a VAT registration and an EU EORI number. The local tax office will mandate regular filings, which are usually done on a monthly basis.
In addition, Czech Republic has strict regulations on product compliance, requiring authorized representation or responsible parties for food, contact materials, electronics, and toys.
Launching Your Brand in Czech Republic
When importing goods into Czech Republic, you will require an Importer of Record to act on your behalf, even if you have a VAT registration and EU EORI number. A VAT of 21% will be charged on the import value, which is typically the selling price of your goods, but it can be reclaimed. It’s important to correctly classify your goods as duties are based on the classification and are not refundable.
You can also arrange for direct shipping to Czech Republic or other EU countries.
