The parties agree
Czech law doesn’t allow for a unilateral termination of a contract that has been duly performed by both parties. Even so, the parties are free to agree on this. The agreement should come in writing, so that no doubts arise, and ought to include the date of termination as well as the settlement of the already performed tasks.
Withdrawal from a contract for work
The fact that most contracts for work contain no withdrawal provisions doesn’t necessarily preclude the act. If one of the parties violates the contract, the other may, upon meeting certain criteria, renege on it. The contract itself should define these criteria by specifying the particular violations that may lead to cancellation. If no such conditions are stipulated, then we must assess whether the conditions in the new Civil Code have been met.
Among the most prominent conditions is a breach of contract, for instance, uncleared invoices or missed payment dates. Let’s note here that any payment dates stipulated in the contract must be adhered to even if no invoice is made out. Moreover, the customer may withdraw from the contract when the contractor misses a deadline. However, they must back out without delay, lest the cancellation be unlawful.
Furthermore, the customer may withdraw if the work contains severe faults. On the other hand, the contractor may withdraw when, e.g., the customer fails to cooperate when necessary. Any particular case needs to be duly evaluated, for which reason we can’t recommend using contract withdrawal templates from the Internet – these may be meant for other situations, making your claim false.

Void contract for work
Any contract for work that fails to meet the prescribed requisites may be deemed void. However, the concerned party must make the claim, otherwise the contract will be considered valid and will need to be observed.
If you wish to cancel a void contract, you must formally object to the other party. If they don’t recognize your objections, you’ll be left with no other option than turning to the court. The period of limitation for raising an objection to a contract is 3 years from the date it was signed; after that, any demands will be fruitless.
