Method of applying

Companies that have already signed an agreement with the Labor Office of the Czech Republic (hereinafter referred to as the Labor Office of the Czech Republic) are proceeding as they were used to before. Thus, they document the Statement and again follow up on drawing support. The statement is submitted after the end of the calendar month for which the company requests. At the same time, wage compensation and mandatory contributions must first be paid.

Companies that do not have a signed agreement with ÚP ČR will fill in the application in the application (link on the banner below) and send it to ÚP ČR. There theyl will inspect it and, if necessary, request a correction or adjustment. In that case, the applicant fills in a new application in the required order. The Labor Office then decides whether it can be closed or whether it rejects the application for specific reasons. After concluding the agreement, paying wages and mandatory contributions, a monthly Statement is filled in for each scheme for which the employer requests a contribution (A, B), and this Statement was sent by the company via a data box or email with an electronic signature back to the employment office.
