Set up your business efficiently: how the right structure can help you

Your small office has grown into a company with assets worth hundreds of millions of Czech crowns? Since entering the Czech market, your company has achieved steady turnover and now reports undistributed profits from previous years, which you have postponed because of the tax burden?

You have branches abroad and it is hard for you to monitor the flow of cash between companies or your tax obligations? You deal with the issue of reorganization and the related amount of tax burden, asset diversification or with succession issues in family businesses? Whether you are doing business locally or internationally, what you need right now is to streamline your corporate structure. At a workshop with Martin Houska, you will learn how a properly set up company structure will help make your business more efficient.


  • Types of company structures and control, their benefits and who they make sense for
  • How the approved tax package affects the possibilities for structuring companies and the tax burden when reorganising
  • How to diversify assets and reduce the overall risk profile of a company or group of companies, e.g. from an operational perspective or through government intervention
  • How to distribute money to the owner for his or her hobbies and other investments with the lowest possible tax burden
  • Experience with various corporate structures
