    We can offer a director of the representative office, if necessary

    The responsibility of the liquidation falls primarily on the director of a representative office. If the director of the representative office is a foreigner and is not willing to stay in Ukraine until the liquidation procedure is completed or to send documents from abroad from time time, we can offer a candidate to replace the director even before the beginning of the liquidation procedure. This will allow to avoid necessity of providing explanations and petitions to the state authorities.

Important to know

Activities of a foreign company’s representative office in Ukraine may be terminated in the following cases:

  • Liquidation of the parent company;
  • Upon decision of a foreign company that has founded a representative office in Ukraine;
  • Termination of the agreement on the opening of the representative office;
  • By decision of a court.


Is it possible to quickly get rid of a representative office (for example, by selling it)?

No, it isn’t. Representative office is not a legal entity. Although it is entirely owned by the parent company, which can make any decision on it, no one can buy a representative office. Thus, the only option is to terminate its operation.

Can the director of the representative office be changed during the liquidation process?

This aspect is not regulated with law. But technically, it is possible to do at the initial stage of the procedure. To be exact, this can be done before a tax audit. No changes can be made after the de-registration at the tax service. Due to the fact that all state authorities, where the representative office is registered, shall be notified of the replacement of the representative office director and some of them may process the documents within one month, we don’t recommend to do this during the liquidation procedure. After all, this can bring the procedure into a stalemate due to the information inconsistency.

Procedure for liquidation of a foreign company’s representative office in Ukraine

After the Client notifies us of his/her willingness to order services for liquidating a foreign company’s representative office, we conclude a Legal Services Agreement with the Client.

After signing the Agreement, our company provides the Client with draft power of attorney and minutes to be signed. After that, our company’s lawyers carry out all the necessary actions within the terms stipulated by this Agreement.

If you want to change the director of a representative office before the beginning of the procedure, we can easily do this upon prior agreement. This will allow you to minimize communication with Ukrainian state authorities and involvement of the previous director of the representative office in the liquidation process.

If necessary, the standard procedure can be changed to better meet your needs.

If you have any questions regarding the legal assistance provided by Pravova Dopomoga Law Firm during the liquidation of a foreign company’s representative office, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
