A Czech limited partnership is treated like a company with regard to the proportional income of its limited partners. In a general partnership, the partner's pro rata income is subject to income tax at the individual's rate (if a partner is a corporation then the pro rata income is subject to corporate income tax at the corporate rate). The same approach is applied to the income of general partners of a limited partnership.
