There are two taxation systems applied for Ukrainian legal entities. For the practical reasons you are most likely to choose the common system also used by most local businesses. Representative offices of foreign companies do not have a choice, but pay taxes on the general basis.

General Taxation System

General corporate tax is (as of March 2012) 21 % on profit which is gradually reduced to 19% on January 1, 2013 and to 16% on January 1, 2014. Pursuant to the current tax legislation of Ukraine, the corporate profit tax is going to be reduced gradually to 16% by the year of 2014.

Simplified Taxation System

The Simplified Taxation System can be chosen by small companies with a turnover of less than 5 mil UAH (appr. 625.000,- US dollars) and amount of people employed less then 50. Not all commercial activities can be performed by such undertakings.

  • Value Added Tax free: 3 % on the turnover.
  • Value Added Tax is involved: 5% on the turnover. VAT – 20%.

Profit taxes are reported – 4 times for each year quarter, 2 reports for each year half and 1 annual report.

Please ask us for advice before taking any action. We are always happy to help.

Sincerely yours,
