TLR Public website is intended for displaying public information about business subjects in the Czech Republic and is operated by the Ministry of Industry and Trade. Information on the public TLR website is divided into two basic sections:
The option of searching for a business subject on the basis of the data of an individual, who has a relationship with the business entity, was added to the Public website on 01.01.2009. The Public website also has links to searching for information in the Commercial Register and information from the Ministry of Industry and Trade concerning Commercial activities. The website also includes the help section, which you are now reading.
The address of the registered individual's place of residence or domicile was removed from the public Trade Licensing Register and from searching on the basis of the data of an individual as well on the basis of the amended Trade Licencing Act since 1.1.2015. Also the option on the basis of the subject's role, under which the subject is enrolled in the TR, was added to searching for a business subject.
The search form serves for definition of search criteria. Subjects can be searched for on the basis of their registered identification number or on the basis of the subject's name (or only the beginning of the name) or the address of its registered office or site of business. It is also possible to specify the role of subject, under which it is registered in the Trade Licensing Register. It is also possible to search for a business entity on the basis of an individual who has some sort of relationship with this business entity on the basis of his role within the business entity. An individual can be searched for on the basis of surname, potentially with specification of the name, role or date of birth. The actual search is carried out by entering the required criteria and clicking on the "Search" button. If you have entered the correct search criteria the search for the subject or individual corresponding to the required criteria is carried out; or the details of the specific business entity or the individual, with a list of business entities with which the searched for individual has some sort of relationship, are displayed. In the event that the search criteria are insufficiently or incorrectly defined you will be notified by an error message.
General rules for searching:
You can delete the entered search criteria by clicking on the "Searching for subjects" link in the menu or clicking on the "Empty form" button mentioned in the tips in the section on the right.
The RN is the Registered Identification Number of the business subject, which was allocated to it by the Czech Statistical Office, the Commercial Register, or the Trade Licensing Office. The RN should be unique, an RN allocated to one business subject in the Czech Republic should not be allocated to any other subject. The RN is a unique identifier and, as such, is the most suitable search criterion. If you enter the RN as a search criterion the remaining search criteria will be ignored and the subject will be searched for only on the basis of the RN. In the ideal case the search will find only one subject. However business entities for which the RN is not known also exist in the database. This is always a temporary situation (the RN will be added when the relevant Trade Licensing Office becomes aware of its value), however, you will not be able to find the required subject on the basis of this criteria in such cases. If you fail to find the business entity on the basis of its RN, use another criteria for finding it - the business entity's name or address.
Subject or subject's name simply means the name under which the subject appears and under which it is registered in the Trade Licensing Register. Depending on the type of subject this may be the trading company (subjects entered in the Commercial Register), name of a legal person (legal persons not entered in the Commercial Register) or name and surname of a natural persons including potential annex (natural persons not entered in the Commercial Register). The search on the basis of the subject's name takes place in the following manner:
The minimum length of the field is two characters, the maximum length is 255 characters.
Should there is a demand to limit the list of found subjects with a particular type of the subject's role under which the subject is enrolled in the Trade Register, it is possible to set the role in this field. Subjects registered as legal persons in the statutory body are linked to the list of subjects with the sought subject present in the role.
The role of the subject can be chosen from the listbox. Following roles are available:
The address is a search criterion made up of the following sections: District, Municipality, Municipal area, Street, Street number and character, House Number. It is essential that the "Municipality" field be completed for carrying out searches for a subject on the basis of its address. If you do not enter the municipality, you will be notified of incorrectly entered search criteria by an error message. The result of a search on the basis of the address is a list of subjects, who have the a registered office, business premises or business operation's organizational unit at the entered address.
The municipality is an essential search criterion for searches carried out on the basis of an address. If any criterion related to the address is entered, this field must be completed.
Street and house numbers are compared crosswise in the inquiry, because these two pieces of information are very frequently interchanged.

If the list of subjects found on the basis of the individual must be limited by the specific type of role that the specific individual has in relation to the subject, the required role can be specified in this field. Subjects within which this individual appears in relation to the selected type of role will be displayed for the found individuals.
The individual's role can be entered by selecting from the list (listbox). The following types of role are available:
The object of business in trades is always given fully in the foreign language version, as it is given in the Annex to Act no. 455/1991 Coll., on licensed trade (the Trade Licensing Act), as amended. In the event that the business entity's scope of activities falling under the specific object of business is limited within the terms of the specific authorization, the actual scope of activities, for which the business entity has a valid trade authorization can only be established in the original language version.
The scope of the object of business activities is an entry, which was entered in the Trade Licensing Register on the basis of the previously valid wording of the Trade Licensing Act. This data is currently not entered in the Trade Licensing Register and is consequently not displayed in the foreign language version at all.
Individual fields of unqualified notifiable trades, realisation of which the business entity announced to the Trade Licensing Office, are not given in the foreign language version. Specific fields of activity carried out within the scope of the trade authorization for an unqualified notifiable trade can only be established in the original language version of the Trade Licensing Register.
If the extent of the suspension of a trade is specified in detail in the Trade Licensing Register, a warning that the specific scope of the suspension of a trade is only available in the original language version of the Trade Licensing Register, will appear in the foreign language version.
If a impediment to carrying out trade, consisting of a court issued prohibition of activities in the field or related field, is entered in the Trade Licensing Register for one or more unqualified notifiable trades, a warning appears in the foreign language version pointing out this fact and stating that more detailed specification of these fields is only available in the original language version of the Trade Licensing Register.
The content of these fields is not translated in the foreign language version and is listed in the Czech language.
Only the list of business premises at which the business entity has notified realisation of business activities in one of the fields of unqualified notifiable trades, is listed by unqualified notifiable trades, during which time the fields of activities are not listed by the business premises. Specific fields of activities in unqualified notifiable trades carried out at the business premises can only be established in the original language version of the Trade Licensing Register.
If the conditions for carrying on a trade are specified in the Trade Licensing Register, a warning that the detailed specification of conditions for carrying on a trade is only available in the original language version of the Trade Licensing Register, will appear in the foreign language version.
