Czech Republic Company FormationCzech Republic – Společnost s Ručením Omezeným (s.r.o.) Company Formation

A Czech Republican Společnost s Ručením Omezeným (s.r.o.) is equivalent to a Limited Liability Company in the UK or a GmbH in Germany in that it is a legal entity which is separate and distinct from the individuals who run it.

As the Czech Republic has strict controls on the ownership of property by non-nationals, but has no restrictions on share ownership of an s.r.o., incorporating an s.r.o. is the ideal means for foreign nationals to purchase and hold property within the Czech Republic.
