Change of company headquarters

When changing a company’s registered office, it is decisive where you change the registered office from.

  1. If the company’s original seat is outside the new/planned municipality (change of seat Prague-Plzeň), it is necessary to change the company’s founding documents as well. Therefore, in this case, it is necessary to visit a notary and make a decision of the general meeting (or the consent of all partners). The decision will take the form of a notarial entry. In this case, you need to visit any notary.
  2. If you are changing your seat within one municipality (Prague-Prague), it is usually possible to make the change without the need for a notary. In this case, the statutory body (one or more executives) can decide on the change of the company headquarters. In the event that you change the registered office of the company within the municipalities of Prague, Brno, Ostrava, without the need to change the founding documents (see point 1.), we offer you help with processing the change proposal for the Commercial Register and processing this change. When using our company headquarters, we offer you a discounted price for processing documents for the Commercial Register.

Change of company seat step by step

1) Carry out a legal act that changes the seat

The decision of the general meeting or the consent of all partners is required if the change of the registered office is accompanied by a change in the founding document (the content of the partnership agreement). This decision must be taken in the form of a notarial entry, and therefore it is necessary to visit any notary. The notary will already provide all the necessary details for the transfer of the company's registered office, including registration in the commercial register.

If it will be a company with several partners, it is necessary to determine whether all partners will participate in the meeting or only one based on full powers. It is important to check in the articles of association whether the executive can represent the company or not. You will need to take with you to the meeting:

1. founding document (a scan of the copy or an electronic version in the collection of documents at justice.cz will suffice)

2. Articles of Association

The decision of the statutory body (one or more executives) to change the registered office of the company (without changing the founding document) does not have to be in the form of a notarial entry.

2) Submit a proposal to enter the change in the commercial register

After the decision on the change of registered office has been approved (by the relevant entity or its body, and in the relevant form), the legal entity is obliged to submit a proposal for registration of the change without undue delay. The proposal is submitted by a business company acting through a statutory body to the relevant registry court. The proposal must include the full address of the new location.

Annexes to the proposal must be:

proof of the execution of the relevant legal act (decision of the shareholders, minutes of the general meeting, decision of the statutory body) in the appropriate form
in the event of a change, a duplicate copy of the founding document or articles of association in full and valid wording
a document proving the legal reason for the use of the premises in which the company's new headquarters are located (consent of the property owner to the location of the headquarters with a verified signature, an extract from the real estate register not older than 3 months or a lease agreement)
court fee of CZK 2,000 for changing the registered office of the company
