When providing services to help foreign companies enter the market of Ukraine we faced a variety of situations. For example, while registering a representative office of a hardware manufacturer that wanted to transfer a foreign director from the head office to its Ukrainian office we faced with the fact that the tax authorities demanded an additional decision for appointing a director, although the only document, on the basis of which the director could work in Ukraine, was a special kind of power of attorney from the parent company.
We helped to prepare documents, which satisfied all requests of tax authorities in Ukraine, so the process of registration and appointment of the director of the representative office was successfully completed.
