David Krch
Languages: Czech, English, French, German

David Krch has many years’ experience representing foreign firms which operate in the Czech Republic. He provides full representation and services, particularly in matters relating to corporate income tax and VAT (within both a domestic and an international environment), for clients whose companies operate in the Czech market long-term; he also offers assistance in the event of one-off projects and compiles due diligence reports for new investors moving into the Czech market.

David thus specializes in particular in taxation issues affecting foreign companies which operate within the Czech market on a long-term basis. David has more than 18 years’ experience in this field (including four years during which he worked in the tax department of the international consultancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers).

David has also gained experience in a number of projects involving mergers and acquisitions and their financing in the Czech Republic, during which he has participated on behalf of both buyer and seller as part of negotiations with the leading legal firms in the CR. Another major part of David’s work centers on investment incentives, an area in which he has been representing important investors – primarily from the automobile industry – for many years.

The automobile industry is another of David’s specializations. He has been representing car manufacturers in the Czech Republic for several years now (i.e. foreign-based production plants), as well as company subsidiaries representing brands of car on the Czech market (i.e. importers), the finance (i.e. leasing) arms of car manufacturers, not to mention at present several producers of vehicle components.

David graduated from the Faculty of Finance and Accounting at the University of Economics in Prague; after completing his studies he worked in the tax department of the consultancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers for four years.

David Krch is a tax advisor and a member of the Chamber of Tax Advisors of the Czech Republic (KDP ČR), within which he is also a member of specialist divisions focusing on international taxation and VAT.
