Register a Company in Ukraine

Ukraine is the largest country in Europe. It has more than 40 million inhabitants. The country aims to integrate with the European Union, and join NATO. In 2018, a visa-free regime between Ukraine and the EU states began to operate. In addition, the state is a member of the Eastern Partnership. Therefore, the demand for the registration of companies in Ukraine is actively growing now.
The capital of Ukraine is Kyiv.
The official language of the country is Ukrainian, but most of the population speaks Russian.
The monetary unit of Ukraine is the hryvnia (UAH).

Why is it profitable to register a company in Ukraine right now? This country is experiencing rapid economic and political growth. The state authorities are changing the legislation, making it more attractive for business. Taxation in Ukraine is quite liberal, the working conditions are transparent. The government is taking measures to increase the investment attractiveness of the state and has introduced a new program. Therefore, registering a company in this country can give a serious impetus to the development of your business, opening new markets and attracting clients from a country with a large population.

The forecasts for the further development of Ukraine are also favorable, and there are prospects for further enhancing the stability and transparency of the country. Therefore, if you open a company right now, you can occupy empty niches before this market becomes especially popular for European companies.
