Business Register maintained by the Czech Statistical Office in compliance with Article 20 of Act No. 89/1995 Coll., on the State Statistical Service, is a public list in the scope determined by the Act. An entry to the register has a meaning of registration only. Businesses, which are legal entities and natural persons with the status of an entrepreneur, are recorded in the register on the basis of the data obtained by the CZSO in compliance with special regulations or the Act on the State Statistical Service. The register is regularly updated; quarterly information on the number of registered businesses according to selected basic classification criteria is available. Basic characteristics of businesses and entrepreneurs in the CR are specified in the publications brought out up to now.

Assigning of "IČO" (identification number) - according to the Act No. 111/2009 Sb., on Basic Registers, as amended, the system of basic registers has been put into operation, by which all entities are assigned an identification number of an entity right at the registration by an editor of the Administration Business Register (ROS). There is a rule, which continues to be valid, that each entity may be assigned one identification number only regardless whether it is registered in more agendas. Identification numbers assigned before the basic registers were put into operation remain valid.
