Czech Company Databoxes
This article is only relevant if you own a Czech property via a Czech company.
A Czech databox („datová schránka“ in Czech) is the electronic method by which the Czech government sends all official communication & documents to all Czech companies, including tax notices, legal obligations, fines and so on.
If you own a Czech company which then owns property in the Czech Republic you (or your representative) need to have access to the databox for your Czech company.
Since 1.1.2016 all company income tax returns must be submitted through the databox of the company (its no longer possible to use someone elses databox). Furthermore, notices for property tax and so on will be sent via the databox.
Once the government sends a message to your databox it is legally deemed as being received by you (whether or not you have logged into the databox or not), therefore its very important to monitor your databox to avoid potential fines for not dealing with government correspondence.
You can get access to your databox via the Czech post office.
Databoxes are mandatory for Czech companies and were launched on 01.11.2009.
Databoxes are not required for private individuals and individuals who engage in business activities (eg self-employed persons).
