Uber to give Czech authorities details for tax purposes

PRAGUE — Uber is to give the Czech Republic's finance ministry information on its drivers' activities so the proper amount of tax is paid.

According to the deal signed Thursday, the ride-hailing service also agreed that as of October its new drivers will join an electronic reporting system introduced by the local authorities.

Initially, the agreement will be effective for a year. Uber will then assess its functioning.

Finance Minister Alena Schillerova says she hopes the deal could also help calm down tensions between Uber and traditional taxi services.
