Trade Licence Non-EU citizen

 google review img of
If you’re interested in freelancing in the Czech Republic and you are a non-EU citizen, then you should apply for a Czech trade licence. If you come from a country outside of the European Union, the process will be more complex for you, but here we come. We will be happy to arrange your trade license or freelancing visa for you. Pexpats help you with the entire process.
We prepare all the paperwork for your application and support you through every step of the process. We take care of all the visits to government offices. Most tasks are done for you with a power of attorney so you save your time and avoid bureaucratic hassles.

!!! It is impossible to switch from an Employee card to a Freelancer visa if you`re in the Czech Republic with a long-term residence for less than 5 years!!! But you can still have a trade license as a side income under your employee card without changing your purpose of staying.

  • Registration of your trade licence
  • Activation of your trade licence
  • Registration at the Tax Office
  • Registration at the Social Security Office
