The main problems faced by non-profit organizations in Ukraine

Start of activity in Ukraine. The organizers have registered the organization, but do not know what to do with it; what is possible and what is not; rights and obligations. This is a common problem, as the organizers usually have a great goal, knowledge in the fields that will help to achieve it. But they do not have a legal education or many years of experience in the field of registration and legal registration of NGO activities in Ukraine. Our lawyers help to avoid this problem by providing advice on the work of the NGO/Charity fund, reporting, taxation, rights and obligations, etc. (the specific list of issues can be specified, but it should be general and general).

The issue of entering into registers – for example, entering into the register of persons engaging volunteers or into the register of non-profit organizations. Entry into such registers may be necessary, depending on what kind of activity you are planning in Ukraine and how you intend to organize it. Our lawyers help with entry into the relevant registers.

Making changes to NGOs - inclusion/exclusion of NGO members, Charity fund participants, change of head or address - all these are frequent problems faced by non-profit organizations. Proper organization of procedures is necessary to minimize risks both for participants and for the organization itself.

Accounting of a non-profit organization - the common thread here will always be the problem of maintaining the non-profit status, the distribution of fund expenses (80/20) and the issue of accepting funds into accounts. You can look for an accountant in the state. But here it is important not only to have an accountant, but also to constantly monitor changes in legislation, record keeping, etc. by a lawyer.

The preparation of documents for the Way is an issue that faced the NGO and Charity fund against the background of the war. You need to know the consequences, risks and possibilities of working with the Path system.

Involving volunteers to work - you need to remember that attracting volunteers and hiring staff to a public organization are different things. Work with volunteers should also be legally formalized, ideally through contracts. And to work with foreign volunteers, you need to be entered in the relevant state register.

Opening representative offices and obtaining the status of an all-Ukrainian NGO is a matter of organizing activities in Ukraine and the need for certain statuses for your organization. First of all, our lawyers will help you determine whether you need these statuses, what advantages they will provide you.
