  • Employing Foreign Specialists in Ukraine – Rules of the Game Have Been Simplified?

    Following the strategy of the Government to improve the doing business climate in Ukraine, Parliament adopted the Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Concerning Elimination of Barriers for Foreign Investments Attraction” dated May 23, 2017 (hereinafter – “the Law”), which came into force on September 27, 2017.  The Law with such an expressive name should have definitely removed the barriers for employment of foreigners, but what have we actually received? Putting the cart before the horse, the Law really significantly changed the procedure of obtaining work permits (hereinafter – “the Permit”) facilitating it essentially from the one hand, but introducing some questionable conditions from the other.

  • New Law on LLCs in Ukraine

    The Law of Ukraine On the Limited Liability Companies and Additional Liability Companies passed on 6 February 2018 shall come into force on 17 June 2018. The Law is a positive sign for doing business in Ukraine as it introduces significant changes and innovations in the legal regulation of the establishment and activities of limited liability companies, which are the most numerous and the most popular form of entrepreneurial activity in Ukraine (second only to individual entrepreneurs).
  • The Code of bankruptcy procedure in Ukraine: positives and negatives of the new document

    The Verkhovna Rada registered a draft law on the Code of Bankruptcy Procedure (No. 8060).

  • CHANGES TO PPA: TO MAKE FINANCIAERS HAPPY

    Over the last few months before January 2018, when the latest changes to the power purchase agreements (PPAs) between State Enterprise “Energorynok” and producers of energy from alternative sources were adopted, more than ten agreements were signed with upgraded conditions set earlier in 2017. In the mentioned agreements, the changes to the PPAs were applied and helped bring Ukraine’s PPAs closer to international standards. Nevertheless, the revised PPAs still have a lot of issues that need to be clarified and further elaborated to make them perfectly bankable, and to make them properly executable.

  • Disputes arising from finance arrangements: post-crisis phenomenon in Ukraine – read more!

    The 2008 financial crisis peak had hardly faded away, when another breaking news was brought to the surface in CIS countries: a significant part of the funds advanced during the pre-crisis period by banks and other financial institutions to support various businesses and commercial initiatives, flew beyond national frontiers to be found in Panama, BVI, Seychelles, Jersey, Cyprus and other offshore and onshore jurisdictions in the pockets of numerous private persons, mostly CIS nationals. No surprise this fact led to a tsunami of disputes, one way or the other related to repayment of loans and funds advanced under other types of finance arrangements. Many of those disputes are still pending, thus, keeping finance arrangements among the top-litigated issues within CIS borders.
