Our practical experience in registration of the company with a license for employment mediation abroad

We were contacted by a Client - a foreign ship management company, who wanted to recruit seamen both, for their own ships and those under their management. 

The question was: Is it possible to create a crewing company in Ukraine that will work in the field of recruiting seamen and be legally based in Odessa?

We started our work immediately from registering the LLC.

These are the documents required for LLC registration in Ukraine by a foreign company:

  • Certificate of incorporation of such company in its origin country. It must be duly certified by the authority that issued the certificate and, depending on the country of incorporation, validated or apostilled;
  • Power of Attorney for our lawyers.

Starting such project we always double check the nature of international relations between our countries as it can influence the whole process of interaction. 

We were able to register the company in just few days and proceeded to work on the case further.
