Main information about the service

The main role of a Point of Single Contact is to make it easier to start a business, especially in the provision of services, both in the Czech Republic and the entire EU.

A Point of Single Contact accepts and passes on to the appropriate administrative authorities all submissions from entrepreneurs that govern access to activities involving the provision of services, especially:

  • registration or notification applications;
  • notifications and reports in the area of social security from individuals to the extent stipulated by other legislation;
  • notifications regarding the creation of open job positions or their filling;
  • notifications and reports from individuals to health insurance companies to the extent stipulated by other legislation;
  • submissions related to the recognition of professional qualifications.

A Point of Single Contact can, for example, be used to submit a registration application to a local tax authority pursuant to § 33 of Act No 337/1992 on the administration of taxes and fees, as amended.

A Point of Single Contract does not assess whether submissions are complete or materially correct.
