The tax system of the Czech Republic is similar in its main features to the systems of other European countries. The Czech tax system consists of direct and indirect taxes. Direct taxes include income tax (both corporate and personal), real estate taxes and road tax. Indirect taxes include value added tax (VAT), excise taxes and ecotaxes.
The main institution in the field of taxation is the Financial Administration.
Taxes are divided into 2 main groups - direct taxes and indirect taxes. Since the accession of the Czech Republic to the European Union on 1. May 2004, the system has been harmonized with European legislation. The Czech Republic also has a broad network of double taxation treaties with both EU and non-EU countries.
