In previous article called “fiscalization slowed“, we mentioned that there has been a slowdown in the process of fiscalisation in the Czech Republic. Groups 3 and 4 had to wait for the fiscal law to be modified in order for them to be fiscalized. New Fiscal Law’s amendment passed the parliamentary procedure on 15.09.2019.
Groups 3 and 4 starts at the same time 1.May 2020.
Taxes for some individual activities covered by groups 3 or 4 are reduced from 21% to 10% to make fiscalisation more efficient (hairdressing and barbers’ services, bicycle repair, footwear, clothing and textile repair and repair, and draft beer sales, ….).
A paper invoice for small entrepreneurs with a turnover of less than EUR 8,000 and maximum two employees is being introduced. Such a taxpayer must retrieve an previously signed blank invoice from the tax administration. These invoices are issued in offline mode and must be submitted to the tax administration within the stipulated deadline.
Also, there remains a benefit of CZK 5,000 to every new taxpayer of those two groups as one-off discount on personal income tax for investment in fiscalisation.
At the end of this year, for most taxpayers 3 year validity of their digital certificate will expire. In november 2019, 52.000 certificates should be replaced and in February 2020 another 112.000 certificates.
