WHY CHOOSE US

  • plus

    Take drafts, where it is impossible to determine the number of valid members

    It is a common practice that the number of valid members of non-governmental organizations, which have been registered for a long time, is impossible to determine: their records were not kept, statements on entrance and exit were not always signed, contact with some members was simply lost and somebody is not already alive. Provisions of charters of the organizations, which were registered before 2013 and charters of which were not amended, have almost always not complied with the relevant legislation. We are taking even such drafts.
  • plus

    We can make changes to a charter within one working day

    If a new version of the organization's charter needs to be registered within tight deadlines, we can do it within one working day from the moment of obtainment of the signed documents.

RELEVANT INFORMATION

Registration of changes in a charter of a non-governmental organization since 2013

 

Sources of income for non-profit organizations, which are exempted from taxation, were newly defined be the Tax Code of Ukraine.

 

Considering this, the charters of non-governmental organizations, which were registered before 2013, have not complied with the provisions of the law.

 

The law defined a term for draft and adoption of a new version of the charter of a non-governmental, which is 5 years.

 

However, it is better to do it right now, since:

 

  • this will remove restrictions on the territory of activities of a non-governmental organization;
  • this will allow to prescribe sources of income and funds formation in compliance with the tax legislation;
  • this will bring provisions of the charter in accordance with the new law on non-governmental activities.

 

That is, change in the charter of a non-governmental organization significantly reduces a risk of exclusion from the Register of non-profit organizations, as well as extending the territory of activity and will bring the charter in compliance with the law.

 

In addition, there is a possibility to add a word "international" to a name of the organization now.

 


The Procedure for maintaining the register of non-profit organizations, which contains a number of requirements to charters of non-governmental associations, who want to have non-profit status, was approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine number 440, dated July 13, 2016.
