How to register a business in Ukraine?

Foreign investors, whose goal is to enter the Ukrainian market with their goods or services, have many ways to achieve this. 

First of all, you need to understand what form of business registration will best meet your interests and help you get the result you expect in Ukraine.

The most popular form of business registration is LLC - its own company allows you to adjust business control processes, to obtain the necessary permits for many activities in Ukraine, as well as to employ a foreign director who can on this basis obtain a residence permit in Ukraine.

Representative office is also quite a popular form of doing small or big business, but already somewhat outdated. We also need to mention that there is a possibility to be self-employed in a form of sole proprietorship. But this form won't give you an opportunity to obtain a residence permit and is most suitable, for example, for IT specialists who want to work remotely while staying in Ukraine.

The main advantage to start your own business in Ukraine through our company is that we not only help to register a company, but also offer services for foreign business in Ukraine. It can include:

  • maintenance of enterprise accounts, communication with the Ukrainian bank, control of funds entering the account and expenses of the enterprise;

  • personnel accounting of the enterprise, assistance with registration of employees, payment of salaries, etc.;

  • accounting in Ukraine;

  • legal advice on all issues arising in the process of doing your own business.

Important to know

Can I become a director in my Ukrainian company?

A convenient scheme for many entrepreneurs is to start a small new business in Ukraine and employ it as a director. Thus it is possible to solve several problems at once:

  • All the levers of management are in the hands of an interested entrepreneur;

  • You can get a residence permit for employment in Ukraine, basically being self-employed and thus stay in Ukraine as long as you need to manage your business;

  • Getting a work permit in Ukraine in this way for the director is somewhat easier - if the director becomes the founder of the company, for him no minimum wage is set.

The only restriction is that at the very moment of the procedure it is impossible to appoint a foreigner as a director of an LLC in Ukraine. According to the law, a foreigner can work in Ukraine only with a work permit. And it has to be requested by an already registered Ukrainian company. Which, in turn, it is impossible to register without a director.

Thus we offer the services of our trusted lawyer, who becomes the director only for the period of obtaining a Work Permit. Or, if you have a reliable partner in Ukraine - he can become a director in your new company for a certain period of time.
