Cash payments via post money order-type A

Czech Post (Česká Pošta, s.p.) uses a post money order – type A for money transfers in cash. This form of payment is not free of charge. Post money order can be used to pay all types of taxes.

After filling the postal order and paying in cash at the post office, the postal order is acknowledged and its right stub is saved at Czech Post, while the left stub of the postal order keeps the remitter as a proof of payment. All data from the postal order are processed electronically into a data file, which is then sent to a recipient. This data file is recipient’s only information source. Therefore, the correct filling of all important information to the postal order is important to ensure its errorless identification and delivery to the recipient.



If the taxpayer will not use the pre-printed postal order, there is also a possibility of use a common post money order – type A, which can be obtained at Czech Post offices. The postal order then has to be filled out by hand completely. Entered data has to be well identifiable, it is also recommended to write in black ink.
