  • plus


    We often face situations when changes to the company cannot be effected under the typical requirements of the law or the registration authority. For example, there are no precise data on the organization’s membership, some members of the Board of Directors do not agree to their dismissal or interfere with it, the provisions of the Charter are not drafted properly and so on. We undertake such projects and always carry them through to the logical conclusion.
  • plus


    As a rule, justice authorities process the documents for registration of changes in a non-governmental unity within three (3) business days and, if everything is alright, they effect changes within 24 hours. Working with us you will not only avoid any complications, but also will get all the necessary changes registered within one (1) business day!

  • EDRPOU code
  • Soft copies of valid documents (minutes, Articles of Association)
  • Information on the nature of changes in the organization or unity

Documents required to make changes in public organizations

There is no a fixed set of documents required for ensuring changes in public organizations due to the fact that in addition to the requirements of the law this procedure is also regulated by the organization’s Articles of Association. Also, the process can be significantly affected by the requirements of the registration authority (the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine), which can often be changed.

In this regard, our lawyers usually prepare the full set of documents themselves, taking into account the specific nature of the organization and the currently valid requirements of the registration authority. In order to simplify the work, we need the Client to provide us with the soft copies of the latest edition of the organization’s Articles of Association and minutes. To ensure the changes, we also need to know the number and names of the organization’s members.

Information on the nature of changes includes a new name of the non-governmental  organization or non-governmental  unity, a new registered office address, an organisational structure, etc. In case of replacement of the organisation’s CEO or governing body, we need to get copies of the passports and identification codes of all members of the governing body.

Important to know

Changes to the governing bodies, names, addresses, statutory documents of registered non-governmental unities are subject to compulsory registration.

At the same time, changes in the names of members of a non-governmental organization are not subject to registration.


May a non-governmental organization be converted into a non-governmental unity?

This procedure hasn’t been prescribed by the law of Ukraine. However, such conversion can often be the only solution for non-governmental organizations, especially sports federations. Such changes have already been effected in practice and our company can do it for you.

Is it possible to remove the data of the non-governmental organization’s founder (natural person) from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities?

In accordance with the current legislation, the powers of the founder of a non-governmental organization are terminated at the moment of the changes registration. However, the general rule is that the data entered in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities during the registration cannot be excluded from it. At the same time, we have practical experience of removing the founder’s data from the Register. This applies for one of the founders, as well as for all of them simultaneously.

Procedure for registering changes to the Articles of Association of a non-governmental organization

After our Company is notified of the Client’s willingness to place an order for registering a non-governmental organization, our Company’s specialist agrees on the meeting with the Client. At the meeting, the Client signs the Legal Services Agreement, makes an advance payment, and provides us with all the necessary documents and information.


Registration of changes to the Articles of Association of a non-governmental unity includes drafting of a Charter and other documents. Then the Company’s attorney and the Client agree on the final text of the abovementioned documents through e-mail. Following the agreement on the documents, we set up a time to meet with the Client to sign the draft documents.


The Company shall provide the Client with all documents or parts thereof as and if agreed within the negotiated timeframes.


If requested by a Client the typical procedure of work can be modified to a more convenient one.


To get more information and order the legal services please contact the Company’s specialists.


How can we help you?

Any changes to the documents of the organization comprise at least two related procedures, which shall be properly carried out in accordance with the law:


  • adoption of changes;
  • registration of changes.
Both procedures require particular attention to details. If you mishandle the adoption of changes (e.g., in case of failure to introduce changes to the minutes or to meet the required quota at the meeting, etc.), you won’t be able to register them.


With respect to amending the Charter, we have studied the process in great detail, as well as thoroughly elaborated the procedure. We are proud of the quality of our services, which meet the highest standards of legal services.

  • We don’t focus on one task set by the Client, but on the ultimate purpose. Thanks to our extensive experience and expertise in various fields of law, we can immediately assess the situation and offer the best and most appropriate way to achieve the required results. Our Clients can usually benefit from services much sooner than they expect.
  • Each our lawyer not only knows exactly how to solve this or that problem in practice, but also assesses all potential risks. This allows us to prepare a thorough report on the situation in the future, as well as to provide you with certain guarantees.
  • We ensure comprehensible and and simple communication. We can answer all your questions in simple terms. Our task is to explain the situation in such a way that there can be no room for understatement or dissatisfaction.
