Czech or foreign investors entering the Czech market may choose between several corporate forms. The fundamental law in this area is the Civil Code and Business Corporations Act.
There are no limitations for foreign investors when it comes to setting up companies. A foreign natural or legal person may establish any form of company either together with other foreign or Czech persons, or alone as a sole shareholder. In this respect, foreign natural and legal persons enjoy the same rights and bear the same obligations as Czech persons and may not be discriminated against.
