Czech Republic Electronic Money License - Finlaw

Czech Republic Electronic Money License

The Czech Republic is a rapidly developing, Central European member of the European Union. With one of the highest per capita incomes in the European Union, the Czech Republic ranks higher than the United States with respect to the ease and cost of doing business. Czech Republic corporations face an effective tax rate of twenty percent while non-Czech Republic corporations are not taxed on foreign sourced income.

As part of the government of the Czech Republic’s efforts to grow its burgeoning financial services sector, it has passed a plethora of legislation modernizing its nascent banking and payments industries. The move has largely been successful, as a myriad of both electronic money and payment service providers have relocated to the Czech Republic to leverage its business-friendly environment. The streamlined, cost effective licensure process remains one of the most attractive across the globe today.

The Czech Republic is an ideal location for obtaining an electronic money license. A Czech Republic e-money license grants the operator wide latitude to offer an array of services, including stored value and payments. The Czech Republic offers two tiers of electronic money license in order to accommodate both established entities and startups.

Advantages of a Czech Republic Electronic Money License

In recent years, payment service providers based in traditional financial hubs such as the United States and European Union have faced near untenable amounts of regulatory scrutiny. In reaction to this, payment service providers have become increasingly limited in the industries they serve, foregoing not only traditional high-risk markets but also more traditional, conservative businesses. An offshore payment service provider license provides a respected platform for operating a payments-related business free from the encumbrances faced by operators in larger jurisdictions.
