Trade license (živnostenský list) is intended for both EU citizens (including Czech citizens) and non-EU citizens who wish to work in the Czech Republic on a self-employed basis. Trade license holders are able to legally work in the Czech Republic as independent contractors/freelance workers. It is popular with many different professions, especially freelance language teachers. Self-employed persons are obliged by law to pay their health insurance and social security contributions. Trade license is a supporting document for non-EU citizens who are applying for a long term visa or a long term residence permit.
