CzechInvest's Support

As CzechInvest is a state agency, all services for investors are free of charge. Since 1992 the CzechInvest team has exercised complete professionalism in working with clients, including confidentiality with regard to each investment project. CzechInvest offers a wide range of services throughout the investment project.

Investment project workflow

Stage 1

Our foreign offices represent CzechInvest abroad and actively promote the Czech Republic. Investment Development Department represents the first contact with the potential investor in the Czech Republic. The investor receives information about different aspects of the business climate and overview of investment opportunities in the Czech Republic. In the case of an investment in priority sectors the sector specialist also provides sector-specific information.

Stage 2

After the investment project's main parameters have been specified, the project is assigned a project manager who works with the potential investor throughout the site-selection and preparation period of the investment project. Other services offered in this phase are the following:

  • Tailor-made visits to the Czech Republic
  • Handling of investment incentives
  • Business property identification
  • Supplier and JV partner identification
  • Liaising with government and municipal bodies as well as with already established investors
  • General assistance until the start of operations
  • Liaising with service companies with local experience that offer a wide range of services and are skilled at ensuring the smooth entry of foreign investments. These companies are represented by the Association for Foreign Investment
