Today, most investors choose European countries for registering brokerage companies and for subsequent attraction of the new customers to the Forex market.

Such a decision of investor is explained by the fact that the legislation of European countries allows organizations to enter the markets of the EU countries according to a simplified system.

There are a lot of advantages in registering a company with a European Forex license.

About the Regulator

The state body that monitors and regulates the activities of forex organizations in the Czech Republic is the National Bank.

The main requirement for obtaining a Forex license in the Czech Republic is the presence of a Czech company, since only organizations registered within the country can obtain a license in the Czech Republic.

Requirements to share capital

Please, note that the share capital of a company must be minimum 125 000 EUR (the share capital does not depend on the legal organization of the company).

The share capital required for the Forex activities can be of two types:

  1. The share capital of 125 000 EUR. In this case the company obtains a Czech STP license to provide the following services:
  • storage and management of securities on behalf of the client;
  • portfolio management;
  • issue of securities.
