A1 – A must for working abroad

What is it?

 

All employees sent for work across Europe are obliged to have an A1 form.

The A1 (formerly E101 or E103) is an internationally recognised form that allows EU-based employees to work from other EU and EEA* countries without paying additional social and health insurance fees. It proves you pay insurance in another European country, and therefore prevents you from being fined.

 

Who does it concern?

 

The A1 form is obligatory for Czech residents working in multiple EU* states. 

Whether it is a half-day business trip or a year abroad, having the A1 form is a legal requirement and not fulfilling it could result in fines. The A1 is valid for up to 24 months and can be re-issued, given the employee fulfills a two-month break after the expiration date before re-applying.

 

How to get your A1?

 

At ReloCare we can submit the A1 application for you so you can save time and focus on work. Keep in mind that the authorities demand between 30 – 40 working days for issuing the form, so make sure you let us know well ahead of your trip.

For A1 information and support, contact our Head of Immigration Kristýna Richtrová at kristyna@relocare.cz  or call at +420 608 874 860.

 

*The A1 form is valid across the EU, the EEA (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway), Switzerland and the UK.
