The Czech Ministry of Finance has introduced its plans for a new digital services tax.

The digital services tax would apply to these services when provided in the Czech Republic by companies with a global turnover of €750 million or more, and the proposed tax would also be based on a minimum turnover of these companies in the Czech Republic (however, that threshold has yet to be established).
A first draft of the legislation is expected by the end of May 2019, and depending on the legislative process, the legislation (if enacted) could have an effective date at some point in the middle of 2020.
