Types of Companies in the Czech Republic
There are two company types that we suggest. Limited liability company (s.r.o) is the most common company type in the Czech republic. (around 90% of all registered companies). One of the biggest advantages is its limited liability company is only liable up to value of its property, shareholder only up to amount of unpaid capital). Simple ownership structure is also an advantage. There is at least one shareholder and one director (both possibly the same person).
SE company (kind of European joint-stock company) is considered the most exclusive and prestigious company type in Europe. Being an SE company will put you in the same company as Porsche, Allianz, BASF, PayPal, etc. The ownership structure is very similar to joint-stock companies. You can also be an anonymous shareholder if required, using bearer shares. The most important one is possibility to transfer registered office to another EU country. By this move is also changed the jurisdiction or, in simple words, the nationality of company. If you one day find out that conditions (like tax, legal etc.) in other country are more friendly than in current one, you can simply transfer the European company to this better country within few months.
