How to register a company in Ukraine for a foreigner?


Limited liability company is the most popular option for business registration in Ukraine. The founder can be a person or a legal entity, as well as a combination of legal entities and individuals. The maximum number of participants is not limited, and the minimum is 1 participant.

Formation of LLC in Ukraine serves as a good ground for obtaining a temporary residence permit for its foreign founders. The permit is issued for the period of up to three years. 

When searching information about companies that are already registered in Ukraine, you can have free access to the official state register online.

The register allows you to find a company formation either by its name or registration number as well as provides information about its legal address in Ukraine, current director (CEO), list of founders and their shares in charter capital etc. For example, the register contains information about bankruptcy procedures initiated regarding certain legal entities.

Information from the official state register may be useful for official correspondence with Ukrainian firms since sending formal letters (including complaints) to the legal address specified in the register is recognized as due by all authorities in Ukraine, including judicial bodies.

At the same time the actual location of the company’s office is not that relevant.

We offer you not only the registration of the company, but the selection of the best option for the solution of your issue. Thus, the registration of LLC can be chosen, for example, for conducting business in Ukraine, or to solve the issue with the relocation to Ukraine (obtaining a residence permit through the opening of a company).

In any of these cases, the registration of the company - only one of the steps to achieve the goal. We will offer you full support and a solution to your problem. All in one place, with a professional English-speaking lawyer in Kyiv.

Is it cheap to open a company? Depends on the risks you are willing to take. We can surely tell that simply registering an LLC can be cheap as it is not a complicated procedure. But if you plan to do the business activities, open bank accounts in Ukrainian currency, earn your money without problems or additional expenses - you will need legal consulting. It is better to plan your business wisely, spending a little more on preparation and business analysis, than to end up with losses or fines.

When facing difficulties using the register (it is in Ukrainian) you can contact our lawyers who will provide all the necessary assistance to clients of our law firm.
