Changes in health insurance advance payments from January 2020

Do you pay the minimum health insurance contributions in the CR as self-employed (in Czech “OSVČ”) or individual with no taxable income (in Czech “OBZP”)? Then you should make sure that you adjust your payments now.

Monthly health insurance contributions are due until the 8th of the following month, i.e. for January until the 8th February.

Due to the increase in average salary every year, the minimum contributions increase as well.

Since 1 January 2020, the minimum advance payments of self-employed persons have been increased to CZK 2,352 (instead of the current CZK 2,208). This amount has to be paid as of the advance payment for January (due date till 8 February 2020).

Due to the increase in the minimum wage, the OBZP insurance premium and the minimum insurance premium for employees also increases to CZK 1,971 (instead of the current CZK 1,803).
