How to relocate the whole IT team to Ukraine?

Let us give an example from our practice, which was based on the redeployment of IT specialists to Ukraine through employment.

This variant of relocation gives the opportunity to each employee:

An additional advantage is that on the basis of employment in Ukraine may move the family of the worker (having received a view of family reunion). 

Briefly about how our lawyers ensure the redeployment of the entire company (business) to Ukraine.

Step 1: Company registration in Ukraine.

In case of cooperation with our company, this stage can be successfully completed in 5-7 working days. You can register your company without being present in Ukraine - by issuing a notary power of attorney for our lawyers.

Important! When creating a legal entity, you need to find a person - a citizen of Ukraine for the position of director, as employment of foreigners is impossible without obtaining a work permit. We offer for this purpose the services of our lawyer, who will conduct the company's business until the registration of top managers. We’ve already covered this procedure in detail here.

Step 2: Obtaining employment permits for the company director and all employees.

Receipt deadline: 5-7 working days.

This stage also does not require the personal presence of a specialist in Ukraine, with an official representative. The employment procedure is initiated by a Ukrainian employer (lawyer-director), who needs only his photo and a scanned version of his passport from a foreigner.

IT-specialists in Ukraine are a privileged category of persons. This means that you can get a permit for up to three years (with the possibility of its extension) and without any limitations in the amount of wages.

Interesting: The work permit in Ukraine was cancelled: what should the employer do?

Step 3: Receiving tax numbers, signing employment contracts with employees.

For this step, the foreigner must already enter the territory of Ukraine. Our lawyers accompany all specialists to the tax office to obtain a personal tax number.

After receiving the TIN, it is necessary to conclude an employment contract with an employer who has received a permit to employ a foreigner. Such a contract should be concluded within 90 days from the date of obtaining a work permit, and therefore it is important not to delay the procedure, because the permit will have to be obtained again. Our lawyers will develop an algorithm of actions for you and make sure that all procedures are carried out on time.

Step 4: Registration of legal stay of a foreigner in Ukraine.

Having a work permit on hand, a foreigner has an opportunity to issue a residence permit - a document that will allow him or her to stay in Ukraine without having to leave.

Before this stage it is necessary to prepare a plan of entry of a foreigner into Ukraine. As a general rule, the foreigner should contact the Ukrainian consulate in a foreign country and apply for a visa type "D" for long-term entry (which is issued on the basis of the same work permit). 

After submitting the required package of documents, within 30 days after receiving the visa, the foreigner should register his place of residence in the country.

There are also other ways to relocate employees to Ukraine, for example, through the opening of the Sole proprietorship (FOP) for foreigners in Ukraine and the organization of its activities on the simplified system of taxation (ie, payment of taxes in the amount of 5% of income and about 32 euros of social contributions).

Attention! Obtaining the status of Sole proprietorship is not the basis for legal stay in Ukraine, and therefore such an employee can not stay in Ukraine for more than 90 days during the six-month period.

Our company has a wide experience in organization of employees' relocations in various spheres of activity, and can choose a convenient option, taking into account the wishes of our Clients. We can combine these options to get all the best advantages of each of them.
