Open A Branch In Ukraine

Introduction to setting up a Ukrainian branch

The Ukraine is favourable to foreign investment and offers various incentives to encourage investors. Foreign companies looking to establish a branch in the Ukraine can benefit from the country’s skilled labour force, huge consumer market and geographical location as the trading bridge between Europe, Asia and Russia.


What are the formalities regarding Ukrainian branches?

  • A registered address
  • A copy of the parent company’s Certificate of Incorporation
  • A copy of Memorandum & Articles of Association of the parent company
  • A copy of the parent company’s Certificate of Good Standing
  • The appointment of a Ukrainian branch representative
  • If the directors of the branch are not Ukrainian citizens, work permits are required

These documents are required by the Ukrainian Ministry of Economy for registration of the branch.

All documents are required to be notarised, apostilled and translated into Ukrainian by an official translator.


What are the accounting requirements for a Ukrainian Branch?

If the branch is planning active economic activities it must register for tax with the Ukrainian State Tax Administration. The branch accounts must comply with Ukrainian legislation; VAT returns should be filed monthly and tax returns annually.

Corporate taxation for branches of foreign parents is the same as for domicile companies.

The parent company is required to appoint a qualified accountant and official auditor for the branch.
