Types of joint ventures in Czech Republic
Businessmen who want to open a company in Czech Republic as a joint venture may choose from two main types of structures:
• corporate joint ventures;
• contractual joint ventures.
A contractual joint venture (JV) is established through an agreement between the parties, which are not required to establish a legal entity to carry out their business activities. In Czech Republic, most of the JVs are set up as corporate JV, which will necessitate registering a new business form.
The corporate JV may be also set up through the acquisition of shares in a company that has already been incorporated in the Czech Republic. It is important to know that a corporate JV will need to respect the regulations applicable under the Czech corporate legislation, on which our team of attorneys in Czech Republic may provide an in-depth presentation.
Legal entities for Czech JVs
In the case of a corporate Czech joint venture, the businessmen will have the following options related to the legal entity of the business:
• limited liability company (which is the most common business form registered in Czech Republic);
• unlimited partnership;
• limited partnership;

In order to register a Czech joint venture, it is necessary to have at least two associates. As a general rule, one of the business partners must be a Czech resident.
