About the country
The Czech Republic is located in Central Europe. It has been an active member of the European Union for just over a decade, and therefore enjoys unrestricted access to the EU market. In terms of economic strength, the Czech Republic is considered a highly developed industrial nation and is a key player in the economy of Central and Eastern Europe. National debt to GDP rates in the Czech Republic are amongst the lowest in the whole of the EU. All major credit rating agencies rated the country’s outlook stable. The banking system in the Czech Republic is seen as healthy and stable.
Deposits with J&T Bank are protected in full by the Czech Deposit Guarantee Scheme (Fond pojištění vkladů) for amounts up to EUR 100,000 per customer. This protection covers the deposits of all individuals, not just those of Czech citizens. More information about the national Deposit Guarantee Scheme in the Czech Republic can be found at http://www.fpv.cz
All Member States of the European Union have agreed on the need to better protect savers. Throughout Europe, the minimum requirements for national Deposit Guarantee Schemes were harmonized a number of years ago (EU Directives 94/19/EC, 2009/14/EC, and 2014/49/EU). These directives provide a standardized, high level of protection of deposits across the EU, regulating, among other things, repayment modalities and repayment deadlines.
Tax process and documents
The standard withholding tax rate on interest in the Czech Republic is 15%. The tax rate can usually be lowered by providing the bank with a certificate of tax residence. The exact lowered withholding tax rate will depend on your country of residence.
As the J&T Banka has informed us, the taxation process in the Czech Republic has changed. The Czech tax authorities now only accept tax documents issued or signed not older than 90 days before the interest payment date.
J&T Banka requires a copy of a photo ID and proof of address in order to open a new deposit account. These documents will be required during Raisin‘s registration process and forwarded directly to the bank, once verified.
