Update: Czech parliament agrees to merge the current 10% and 15% reduced VAT rates

30 November 2023

The Czech parliament has now given its approval to consolidating the country’s two reduced VAT rates of 10% and 15% into a consolidated rate of 12%, as well as to reduce the VAT rate on physical books to zero. 

This will take effect from 1 January 2024. The two reduced rates currently apply to the following supplies:

  • 10% - Baby and gluten-free foodstuffs, newspapers, certain pharmaceutical goods and services, accommodation, restaurants and hospitality services, certain books and e-books, and admission to cultural events.
  • 15% - Certain foodstuffs, non-alcoholic beverages, takeaway food, certain medical goods, certain passenger transport, certain books, e-books, and amusement parks

There will be no change to the standard VAT rate of 21%.
