Accounting services for business in Ukraine: take an accountant as outsource or hire a staff?

When entering the Ukrainian business market, any foreign company or entrepreneur aims to make a profit.

You can organize your business in many different ways. In Ukraine you can start a representative office of any form of business structure convenient for you, a subsidiary company, or even register a company from scratch. But whatever type of business structure you choose, you will face many accounting and legal issues, for example:

  • How to withdraw money from the Ukrainian company to the parent company?

  • What group of taxation in Ukraine is better to choose for your type of activity?

  • How to optimize taxes and avoid extra fees?

  • How to properly organize personnel accounting if you are going to use hired labor?

And here arises the main question, Where to get an accountant versed in Ukrainian law, and whether to hire an in-house accountant or use outsourced accounting services? 

Many activities directly provide for the presence of an in-house accountant, for example, the activities of financial companies - in this case, an in-house accountant is a must. But in other cases, this position can be held by the director of the company or an outsourced accountant.

When conducting business in Ukraine, for example, a foreigner doesn’t always need an in-house accountant. Often foreign companies do not even have a physical office, but organize their work remotely. But the biggest danger is that an in-house accountant, like an in-house lawyer, does not always have the skills to solve any problem that arises in your business.

The easiest solution is remote accounting, that is, outsourced accounting services.

In fact, quality outsourced accounting means a full-fledged accountant at your company. Such an accountant can be paid for services or on an hourly basis, and can run several businesses at the same time.

As our practice shows, the most difficult aspect is the procedure for withdrawing funds to the parent company with the least financial losses (taxation). 

This issue becomes especially urgent at the end of the year, when income tax must be paid. In our company’s practice at the end of 2020 there was a situation when it was necessary to transfer an amount with six zeros to the account of the parent company and to pay the minimum amount of taxes. The appropriate solution was found due to the specifics of the state policy approved for 2020. But as a rule, you can always find optimal options for solving difficult situations if you take a non-standard approach.
