Discusses requirements for products entering the country/economy temporarily. Includes information on warranty and non-warranty items shipped for repairs.
Companies may export goods to the Czech Republic for temporary use as long as the period does not exceed 24 months (in some cases it is possible to extend this). The exact time period must be agreed with Czech Customs. When the goods are re-exported, three percent of the duty value per month (when the goods were in the Czech Republic) must be paid if the goods were used (maximum will not exceed the full duty amount). The potential customs debt must be secured by a guarantee.
Exports to the Czech Republic of raw materials and certain semi-finished products that are processed and then re-exported from the European Union enter duty-free. This is contingent upon the approval, by Czech Customs, of the processing conditions and the handling of any waste created through the transformation of the goods.
