How to open an online store in Ukraine?

First of all, the business needs to be officially registered. We are not talking about selling goods through Instagram or Facebook, we are discussing the size of the business that will allow you to really make a profit and develop in the Ukrainian market.

For such possible development, you need to officially start a business by registering it in the form of a company or private entrepreneurship. The choice depends, first of all, on who you plan to cooperate with and who will be your counterpart. If you are planning retail sales with small turnovers - suit private entrepreneurship.

If your contractors may be other legal entities, you plan to hire employees, want to be able to quickly sell the business - then it is better to immediately open a company.

Of course, your business will need to be registered with the tax authorities, as well as to obtain additional permits, if they are required. This depends on the type of business you plan to conduct, the type of goods you will sell online.
