Czech Republic: exit tax rules enacted

Effective from 1 January 2020, the relocation of assets beyond the borders of the Czech Republic without a change of ownership (eg when a Czech tax resident transfers assets to its foreign permanent establishment or when a Czech tax resident changes its tax residence) will become subject to tax.

The new rules will apply for all relocations which occur after 1 January 2020. The movement of an asset will be taxed in the same way as the sale of the asset for its market value. The tax base will be calculated as the difference between the market value of the asset and its tax value.

This regulation also affects cases of cross-border mergers.
