How to buy an LLC in Ukraine?

Buying a ready-made company can be not only an alternative to registering a new business for those who want to save time, but sometimes even a necessity.

Let's say you have decided to take part in an auction or a profitable tender, you are confident in your capabilities, but you do not have a company that meets all the requirements for a bidder - for example, the company is very new, has no “ business history”, or does not have the status of a VAT payer.

Registering a company from scratch and obtaining a VAT payer status is not an option as it takes too much time. The obvious way out is to buy a ready-made company. But this process is also full of knots:

  • It is dangerous to buy a company from an unverified seller, because it may already be included in n the registry of debtors, which you may not know right away;

  • It is necessary not only to choose a safe company to buy, but also to make sure that the company is correctly re-registered.

As a way out of this situation, we offer our Clients to buy a company from us.

How to buy a ready-made company from us? 

In the fall of 2020, we were contacted by a Client who intended to participate in the Prozorro bidding process. Due to certain circumstances, he needed a new company to participate in the tender. But the registration of a limited liability company was out of the question, because in order to participate in the auction, the following rules had to be met:

  • A company had to have a VAT payer status;

  • A company had to have a “history”, i.e. it had to be registered some time ago.

Moreover, the Client had 4 days to submit an application for participation in the auction, during which it was necessary not only to re-register the company, but also to prepare a package of documents for submission to Prozorro.

Thus, the Client needed a ready-made company with a history, a VAT payer status to be re-registered within 4 days.

We managed to provide him with it.

As we mentioned before, all our companies, including the one chosen by the Client, are registered by us, which means that we did not have to spend extra time on its verification.

We conducted an accelerated company re-registration procedure for the Client. What does it mean? The thing is that during the transfer of the company to the new owner, it is necessary to make minimal changes - the change of the company shareholders and its director. These are two separate registration actions which cannot be performed simultaneously. Usually, the change of director and shareholders takes about 3 days. However, even 3 days was too long for our Client.

But with flawless documentation and prior arrangements, we managed to perform each action within 2 hours. Thus, the Client had already got the company by the evening. 

In addition, we also helped to prepare the documents for their submission to the Prozorro bidding process.
