Tax Regulations When Opening an Account Abroad: What You Need to Consider

Understanding the tax implications of opening an account abroad is crucial to ensure compliance with all tax obligations. It's important to note that earning income abroad does not exempt individuals from paying taxes in Ukraine. Many foreign banks act as tax agents. Ukraine has enacted the Law on the Automatic Exchange of Tax Information. This exchange requires financial institutions in CRS participant countries to collect information about personal accounts of individuals and corporate accounts of companies (CFCs) and transmit this information to their country's tax authority.

Subsequently, the tax authority of the bank's registration country transmits financial information to the tax authorities of the company's registration country and the country of the beneficiary's residence. In other words, this law imposes the obligation to transmit information:

  • for foreign banks/tax authorities to transmit information to Ukraine;
  • for Ukrainian banks/Ukrainian tax authorities to transmit information to other countries based on the tax residency of the beneficiaries.


For Ukrainian citizens holding accounts abroad, this Law requires timely and accurate reporting of all financial assets in income declarations. Violating these rules can lead to tax penalties and other legal consequences. We always address the tax aspect during consultations and when opening an account in a foreign bank. This ensures peace of mind for our clients and effective financial management without tax risks.

Нow Much Cash Can Be Taken Out of Ukraine?

According to the Procedure for Cross-Border Movement of Currency, an amount exceeding 10,000 EUR or its equivalent must be declared at the border. Documents confirming the source of funds must be provided with the declaration. Amounts up to 10,000 EUR do not require declaration.
