The amendments to tax laws already was published in the Collection of Laws on 16 June and will become effective from 1 July 2017. Most of the changes to value added tax regulations will be effective as of the mentioned date. A majority of the changes to income tax will not be reflected until the 2018 tax period (or the tax period beginning on 1 July 2017 or later if the tax period is a fiscal year).
The General Financial Directorate published opinions on the impossibility of the exemption of the transfer of apartment units not located in residential buildings and on the tax regime of individuals operating photovoltaic power stations. Those opinions react to certain discrepancies in wording of acts and the original lawmakers' intention. The important thing is that the tax administration used originally also an approach different than those presented in the new opinions. This can cause certain complications for the affected tax payers.

What do you know about the electronic record-keeping of cash sales? Those who think that the electronic record-keeping does not relate to them perhaps only know that it will concern sending electronic data about cash sales to the financial authority and issuing receipts which will be traceable in the electronic register of the tax administrator.

Like almost every year, this upcoming January will be marked by numerous legislative changes that may affect your business. This year's novelties are also underpinned by a new civil legislation (particularly the entirely new Civil Code - the “New Civil Code” and the Business Corporations Act). Below we provide an overview of the most important changes in the fields of taxes and accounting.
KempHoogstad Tax News 12/2013
In 2014, there will be important changes in VAT relating to the sale of land.
The sale of land that is value added tax exempt in 2013 may be taxed with the base tax rate under certain conditions. This change will significantly influence the prices of land sold to individuals who cannot reclaim VAT, so the mentioned change will increase the prices of land. As for VAT payers, the change influences the cash flow at sale.
Naturally, all depends on whether the proposed legal modification is approved in the legislative process, but we can assume it will be approved.
The article is written by Olga Holubová, a VAT specialist who is one of the most respected experts in the field in the Czech Republic.
