Liquidation of the Charitable Foundation in Kyiv quickly: Minimum terms of CF liquidation in Kyiv

The minimum term (1-3 business days) can be applied to the “urgent liquidation”, e.i. the “alternative liquidation” of the CF. This is the procedure for transferring the foundation to the new owner (member).

Price, nuances and minimum terms shall be specified for each individual case.

Other options of the CF liquidation in Kyiv will take 2 months minimum. In practice, it can take about a year or more.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Why can the CF liquidation procedure take months or even years?

The reason is that according to the law, the foundation must be de-registered with all state agencies where it is registered, including the tax authorities. For this purpose, the tax authorities have to appoint an audit of the charitable foundation, but due to the workload the audit may be dalayed for quite a long time.

Can I use the “alternative liquidation” service if the charitable foundation has already been in the process of termination for a long time?

First, you need to cancel the decision to terminate the foundation (at the state registrar) and only then - transfer the rights to it to other persons. This option is not expedient at all stages. Therefore, the decision shall be made on the case-by-case basis.

Procedure and period of dissolution (liquidation) of the Charitable Foundation in Kyiv

We can offer several options of the liquidation (dissolution) of the charitable foundation. The stages and the price of the CF liquidation procedure, legal support services will depend on the way we will jointly decide to go to your final goal.

An “alternative liquidation” is the fastest way to change the members and to withdraw from the management of the foundation. That said, this procedure does not always eliminate the risk of holding the management accountable (even if they are no longer employees of the foundation).

One of the most urgent questions our Client Managers hear is whether it is expensive to close a charitable foundation in Ukraine and what is the price of the accelerated procedure. In order to know the price of services and terms of the entire procedure, first of all we have to decide what kind of actions we will perform to solve the issue as efficiently as possible.

This service can start with consultation on the possibility of liquidation of the foundation, and later we may proceed to the liquidation (if the Client has already been consulted on the key points of this procedure). Before the start of work we sign an agreement with the Client.

After paying for our services, our lawyers start drafting documents. At this stage our lawyers may need to interact with the Client’s accountant (if the situation requires it and it is stipulated in the agreement).

After the end of the services, the foundation ceases to exist as a legal entity (in the “alternative liquidation”, the management of the foundation is transferred to persons who are not related to the Client).

If we briefly describe the procedure of the CF liquidation, say, by the decision of its members, you will have to go through the following stages:

  • Making a decision to liquidate the foundation. Such a decision shall be made at a general meeting of CF members and recorded in the Minutes;

  • Submission of the documents to the state registrar;

  • The work of the liquidation commission / liquidator. This stage involves a complex of actions, which include, for example, closing the accounts of the legal entity, an inventory of its property, dismissal of employees, etc. As a result, you get the Act of the Liquidation Commission, which specifies a list of the conducted actions and the resulting documents;

  • Submission of documents to the tax authorities, the tax audit and de-registration;

  • Submission of the registration and primary accounting documents to the state archive;

  • Submission of the final package of documents on the dissolution of a legal entity to the state registrar.


Of course, the process of alternative liquidation of a charitable foundation will be completely different with other stages.

If you want to know how to liquidate a charitable foundation, how much it costs and whether it can be done in the shortest possible time, our lawyers have the answers to all these questions. Don’t hesitate to call us!
