Views: 2047

So, You’ve decided to stay in Ukraine and need to decide how to receive a TRP in the fastest and easiest way. 

Today we’ve decided to talk about such a way or TRP receiving as registration of Your own company in Ukraine.

The whole procedure consists of stages, which you can see on our page of services, or clarify with a specialist. The first will be obtaining TIN in Ukraine, which will be needed for almost all official actions and procedures in Ukraine.

How to receive an identification number in Ukraine?

As a foreigner, You cannot hold a job position in Ukraine or register a firm here without this number. To receive it, You’ll need to provide a local lawyer with Your passport and a power of attorney which can be issued at the nearest notary’s office (in case, if You are staying in Ukraine at the moment). 

You can also receive the IN (identification number) without visiting Ukraine, if you’ll send all the documents by mail. Just notice, that in this case the power of attorney must be prepared by the local lawyers and legalized or apostilled in Your country. 

We can get the IN within 1 week after receiving Your documents.

What is the process of the LLC registration in Ukraine?

We often recommend choosing the LLC as an organizational form as it has an easier establishment process.

First step that needs to be taken is the assembling of the general meeting where such things will happen:

  • establishment of the LLC;

  • elections of the head of the company;

  • approving of the documents;

  • determination of the LLC’s address and directions of activities;

  • definition of the size of shares capital. 

As a result, You'll get a protocol of the general meeting which is needed for the further registration. As its preparation as well as the development of the charter require knowledge of the local legislation, we highly recommend applying to the local lawyer. 

We can draft all the needed documents and complete the registration process on the basis of a power of attorney in two days.

Important! For a faster procedure without applying for additional permits and documents, You should use services of a nominal director on this stage. As a foreigner, You can’t hold a position in Ukrainian company including a position of a director, without a previously received work permit. This means, that after the registration, this position must be occupied by Ukrainian citizen. 

We can also provide You with the address for the LLC registration, if You don’t have one.

Getting a work permit (WP) for a foreigner as a CEO in his LLC 

First thing to do is to send an application for such a permit on behalf of a registered LLC.

This document must be written on an official blank, and include all the information about the job position. Such a document is personal - it is issued to a specific employee.

Appendixes to the application include photo, passport and the labor agreement project.

WP can be issued in 7 days if the documents are formed correctly and don’t contain any mistakes.

After the work permit is issued, the only thing left to do is to apply for a D visa and enter Ukraine.

If you want to receive it via courier, it can be organized, as the permit can be received by the director with the power of attorney.

How does the CEO’s replacement happen?

As an example, when we were working with our Clients from abroad, our lawyers prepared a protocol of a general meeting beforehand, which approved a replacement of the CEO. This is a necessary step for the process.

These documents must be submitted to the state registrar after their notarization. This will be the final stage of company registration - you will be appointed its director.

Getting a temporary residence permit 

To start the process, You need to write a legal entity’s petition on an official blank, sign and seal it by yourself. In addition, such documents are required:

  • a passport; 

  • a health insurance policy; 

  • a work permit.

Such a permit can help You to stay in Ukraine longer legally and visit/leave Ukraine as much as You wish.
