Czech Republic – Rate change planned for 2024

The Czech Republic is considering consolidating the two reduced VAT rates of 15% and 10% into a single rate of 14% or 13%. The standard rate would remain at 21%.

The 15% VAT rate currently applies to certain books, medical products and foodstuffs.

The 10% VAT rate applies to certain pharmaceutical products, cultural events, catering and hospitality services.

If passed, the measure could go into effect in January 2024.
