Invoicing in the Czech Republic

Czech Republic invoicing requirements

VAT invoices are typically required to be issued for taxable supplies. VAT invoices are necessary to support the recovery of input VAT. Czech VAT payers are generally obligated to provide VAT invoices to VAT-liable individuals or non-business legal entities for all taxable supplies. Failure to do so may result in a fine.

VAT invoices in the Czech Republic are the equivalent of tax receipts in the European Union. They represent the formal documentation of the amount of tax charged and collected, and they also serve as the definitive evidence of the tax amount owed to the government.
