  • Doing business in Ukraine: turning point for the currency control in Ukraine

    One of the most hotly discussed topics in 2019 is currency control liberalization in Ukraine.The currency control liberalization was one of Ukraine‚Äôs priorities under the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. At the beginning of 2019 the National Bank of Ukraine (hereinafter the ‚ÄúNBU‚ÄĚ) approved and promulgated all long-awaited regulations, serving as the basis for a new liberal¬†system of foreign currency control. The new¬†currency control¬†system will be launched on 7 February 2019, the same day as the Law of Ukraine¬† On Currency and Exchange Transactions¬† becomes applicable. The changes are aimed at deregulation, facilitating cross-border transactions with foreign currency and expanding the list of available foreign currency transactions.
