The Customs Administration of the Czech Republic is a security authority ensuring the execution of processes in the area of customs administration and related taxes, as well as other non-fiscal activities to the benefit of the state and its citizens. It reports to the Ministry of Finance. The organizational structure of the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic is two-tiered and consists of the General Directorate of Customs of the Czech Republic (GDC), which manages 15 customs offices.
The customs authorities administer all excise duties (taxes on mineral oils, alcohol, beer, wine and intermediate products, and tobacco), environmental taxes (on natural gas and others, solid fuels, and electricity), taxes on raw tobacco and value-added tax, though the last only in situations where goods are imported from third countries and the declarant is not registered as a VAT payer in the Czech Republic.
Adastra is built on long-term cooperation with its customers, one of which is the GDC. The company started building the data warehouse in the year 2004 and continues to maintain and develop it alongside the customs office. As the GDC has established new purviews and programs related to the customs office’s expanding jurisdiction, Adastra’s con sultants have continuously added more and more sources to the data warehouse. At present, there are 40 of these sources, so it is easy to picture the enormous reach of this solution.

Based on data from the data warehouse, the GDC’s analysts prepare managerial reports and statistics for the organization’s own purposes, as well as for use outside the customs office (for example, for the Ministry of Finance, the Czech Statistical Office, the General Financial Directorate, EU bodies, etc.). These reports are based on certified, quality data from the data warehouse, are interactive, and meet requirements for the use of up-to-date technological and visual reporting tools.
