This article takes a look in the situation concerning the European Company (SE) in the Czech Republic. As the European Legislature adopt the legal act in 2001 and put it into force since 2004, Czech Republic became the state with the highest amount of SE. Authors try to identify the conditions of founding SE in Czech region and whether SE are located there as a ordinary trade companies or not. Even the idea of SE was unique now there are 27 local law amendments which make the situation complicated related to aquis communautaire (legislation EU). Although it seems that SE are here rather as “empty shell SE” authors think that such legal form is the future in the European join market.
