Obtainment of the Financial Services License
50 000 UAH

The specified cost of financial services license obtainment refers to obtaining one type of the license. If you intend to obtain several licenses, the cost of services shall be agreed separately.

The period of obtaining a license depends on a number of factors, but it usually takes about two weeks.

In addition, there is a number of other legal actions to be carried out in advance that also require some time. They include:

  • Registration of a legal entity - about two days. 
  • Inclusion into the State Register of Financial Institutions - about 35 days. This stage involves consulting on the requirements for the financial institution, assistance in obtaining an audit report, etc.

The services mentioned above are not included in the cost of service for obtaining a license and are provided via separate agreement with our lawyers.

Thus, the whole procedure for obtaining a license, including all the necessary steps, can take about two months. But we can speed up each of the stage upon the agreement with our specialists.

After receiving a positive decision of the Commission, we provide you with the details of the state fee payment, which amounts to one minimum subsistence level for able-bodied persons (2,007 UAH since July 1, 2019) for one license.

Over the years of continuous operation, we have developed the most convenient scheme of cooperation, since we have experience in working with managers and top-managers of financial institutions, as well as with external and internal attorneys of the companies.

In addition, we have sufficient expertise to:

  • Provide you with a turnkey service (registration, inclusion in the Register, licensing);

Volodymyr Gurlov, Managing partner


According to the law of Ukraine, financial institutions are legal entities, which are registered in the manner prescribed by law and provide one or more types of financial services.

To provide several types of financial services, the company shall obtain several types of licenses. This means that a legal entity can carry out four types of activities at once:

  • Lending, including on the terms of financial credit;
  • Guarantee services;
  • Factoring;
  • Finance lease.

However, there are also so-called “exclusive” types of licenses.

Thus, if a company, for example, intends to provide services related to fund management for purchasing goods in groups, it can obtain only one type of license, which is exclusive.
