Renewal Fees for UCITS et AIFs authorized for distribution in Czechia

Renewal Fees for UCITS et AIFs authorized for distribution in Czechia

Further to our fund distribution alert 2022-18 regarding the transposition of Directive (EU) 2019/1160 in Czechia and the introduction of regulatory fees, please be aware that an administrative fee for renewal of the entry of foreign investment funds in the Czech National Bank (CNB) list (Article 598 (5) AMCIF) is now effectively being applied.

This annual regulatory maintenance fee will be charged for the first time in 2023 for all foreign investment funds (both UCITS and AIFs) marketed Czechia. This will renew the entry on the list for one year.

As for next year (2024), the renewal of entries in the CNB List will take place as of 1 January 2023 until 2 December 2023.

The renewal fee introduced by the CNB is as follows:

Single fund

Umbrella fund (per sub-fund)

CZK 10,000

CZK 10,000

1. Payment period

The maintenance fees should be received by 2 December of each year at the very latest (i.e., no later than 30 days before the expiration of the validity of the entry). The CNB considers that the date on which the payment was credited to the CNB’s account is the decisive day.

Once the payment has been done, the Czech authority encourages to provide this information to the following e-mail address:

2. Payment procedure

The validity date of the fund as well as its Personal Identification Number, which will be needed to proceed with the payment, is accessible on the following website:
