Summary/Abstract: This contribution analyses the number of newly established as well as closed down entrepreneurial units in the Czech Republic between 2008 and 2015 with regard to the legal form of business as well as the field of business activity. The aim is to use the non-public sources of Czech Statistical Office and assess the trend in the number of entrepreneurial units in the Czech Republic. The methods of comparative analysis and trend analysis were used to monitor individual types of business activities as for the number of established and closed entrepreneurial units. The types of economic activities with high entrepreneurial activity were determined by means of net balance and average annual growth rate. The contribution reacts to the conclusions of a European Commission study Flash Eurobarometer (2012), which assesses the Czech Republic as one of four EU countries where a growing number of people prefers self-employment to employment. The authors consider the differences among various entrepreneurial activities and among legal forms of business to be a starting point for a discussion about support to particular fields of business, about private investment and forms of financial flows on both national and international levels.
