What documents will be required to obtain non-profit status?

You will need to collect and prepare a number of documents that will testify to the non-profit nature of your activities in Ukraine. The main document here will be, of course, the Articles of Association. It should contain provisions stating that the organization does not plan to make a profit, how exactly the funds received into its accounts will be distributed, and what are the goals of the NGO's activities. 

We have drafted dozens of such charters, designed for each specific organization.

The tax office to which you will apply for the status may also require other documents on the registration of the NGO and proof of the nature of its activities.
