Legal advice on starting a business in Ukraine

Let’s find out how the business setup can be the basis for obtaining a temporary residence permit, because the list of possible grounds doesn’t include this basis.

In this case, the basis for obtaining a temporary residence permit isn’t actually the start of the business, but a permit for employment in Ukraine, which you get as the director of a newly established company. But you should pay attention to the algorithm of actions:

  1. We register an LLC in Ukraine with you as the founder. In this case a Ukrainian person shall be appointed as a director of the LLC (it will be one of the company’s lawyers). The thing is that you cannot immediately become the director of the company without having a work permit, and to get a work permit the company must be already established and have a director;

  2. On behalf of the LLC you apply for a work permit in Ukraine, we also help you to get a TIN in Ukraine;

  3. After obtaining a TIN we change the director of the company — you replace our lawyer in this position.

Of course, each of these stages requires a different set of documents and understanding of the Ukrainian laws and regulations. But our lawyers have been providing services on business immigration to Ukraine for many years, and can conduct the entire procedure within the shortest possible time.

As for the situation where you want not only to move to Ukraine, but also relocate, for example, your wife or husband, this can also be arranged. Some of our Clients wonder if it is possible to employ a spouse in the established company to obtain a work permit, and accordingly the basis for a temporary residence permit. Here it is important to understand that hired employees in the company, that is, the second spouse, will entail the need to pay taxes. Much easier and more profitable will be to get a temporary residence permit for family reunion. We can also help you with this issue.

Please note! Having registered a company, you must follow the rules of its maintenance, i.e. regularly pay taxes and submit reports to the tax authority. This is not difficult.
