Requirements for a licensed business

Before contacting the National Bank of the Czech Republic, an entrepreneur should check the compliance with the requirements put forward, and first of all, to the authorized capital as a guarantee to cover any risks.

Employees of "E-COMMERCE BROKER" will help to correctly calculate the amount of capital for a new organization that has not yet accumulated sufficient accounts to determine the minimum allowable amount.

  1. Accounting and risk management.
