Don’t have a food licence? Or are you thinking of starting to earn as a self-employed person but have no idea where to start? Read on for advice on how to get this certificate and how to set up a business easily.
Food processing certificate
Currently, all individuals who handle or come into contact with food in the course of their work must have a food health certificate. The card must be in possession before commencing business. It is the responsibility of the medical practitioner who will carry out the medical examination. The validity of the document is determined by the doctor and may be set for a definite or indefinite period.
Setting up a trade as a courier is a relatively easy process. Just stop by the trade office and apply for a trade. You can decide for yourself what kind you need. If you will be walking or cycling – you will be applying for a free trade. You apply for a trade licence for small goods transport up to 3.5 tonnes if you are delivering goods by car.
An administrative fee must be paid to the Office (CZK 1,000 for the first trade, CZK 500 for the next trade). Ask the office to inform the health insurance company, the social security administration and the tax office about your business. Otherwise, you will have to inform them yourself.
The office will issue you with a free trade licence – for bicycle or pedestrian couriers – immediately and we can start working with MoveTo Delivery immediately. The office usually has two weeks to process a licensed trade and will send the documents by post.
