the man, the myth
The letter is dated the 16th of October. I am sure I received it about 10 days ago, but I have the bad habit of ignoring my post and so I just read it last night.
The heading: Upozornění na zánik živnostenského oprávnění – Notice of cancellation of trade licence.
Martin had fixed the previous problem. He had obtained a new printout of my trade licence with a later date and refiled for registration with the commercial court. I didn’t have to do anything except pay an additional 5000 Kč, and the commercial court registered me and everything seemed to be fine.
But apparently the commercial court had sent a letter to the trade licence office the first time round notifying them that my registration had been refused. And the letter the trade licence office sent to me will also have been sent to the financial authorities, the social insurance office and the foreigner police. So the next notice I get will be that my visa has been cancelled. If Martin can’t fix this, I will have to start all over again.
The joy I feel at the sheer absurdity of it all would almost be worth it if it weren’t costing me quite so much money.
