As part of the forthcoming changes, a significant intervention in the VAT Act is also planned. Below we bring you a list of the biggest changes as of the date of publication of this text.

Changes to VAT turnover

  • New period for calculating turnover: turnover will be calculated from 1 January to 31 December of a given year.
  • VAT registration: if the turnover for January to December exceeds CZK 2,000,000 (and does not exceed CZK 2,536,500), the entity will become a VAT payer from 1 January of the following year. If the subject wishes to become VAT-liable earlier, he can apply within 10 working days of crossing the threshold, thus becoming VAT-liable from the following day.
  • Exceeding the higher limit: If the turnover exceeds CZK 2,536,500, the subject will become liable for VAT from the second day after exceeding the new limit.

Other changes in the field of VAT

  • Reverse charge: It will also apply to certain cleaning services, including general cleaning of buildings and industrial cleaning services.
  • Reduction of the time limit for claiming the deduction: The time limit will be reduced from 3 years to 2 consecutive calendar years.
  • Extension of the time limit for correction of the tax base: The time limit for correction will be extended from 3 to 7 years. In the event of legal proceedings being initiated, the time limit will not be interrupted.
  • Refund of tax deductions on outstanding liabilities: New obligation to refund tax deductions after 6 months from the due date of the liabilities.
  • Deduction for cars: Possible change or abolition of the car deduction limit (CZK 2,000,000) in 2027.

Real Estate

  • Time test for immovable property: the 5-year time limit for claiming the exemption on the supply of immovable property is abolished to simplify the rules and bring them in line with other tax rules.
  • Limit for substantive change: In the case of a substantial change, there will be a reduction from 50% to 30% of the value of the property. This will have an impact on the running of the exemption period on delivery, which will be recalculated.
  • Building land: there will be a clarification of the definition of building land as per the municipality's planning documentation.

We will monitor any further changes and keep you informed.
