open a company and Registration of a legal entity with foreign founders in the Ukraine. Foreign citizens who stay in Ukraine on legal grounds have the same rights as Ukrainian citizens (except the vote right). They can register their own legal entity as the founders of this legal entity (they might require an Ukrainian partner at initial stages though). The most popular and prevailing kinds of legal entities in Ukraine are Private Enterprise (PE) and Limited Liability Company (LLC). The difference between them is the number of required founders: 1 founder for PE, 2 and more founders for LLC. The one and only issue currently is that to be a company managing director you require an Ukraine employment permit to be able to register a company in Ukraine as a foreigner, but you cannot obtain the permit until the company is founded, right? Talk about the chicken and the egg situation. The most common solution is to incorporate the company with an Ukrainian director and foreign founders, receiving the employment permits, and then replacing the Ukrainian director with a foreigner after he receives an employment permit and temporary residence card in Ukraine. Keep in mind, if your activities require many foreign employees, we propose you to consider a registration of a foreign representative office instead, so you’ll simply have to obtain a foreign employee service card for a purposes of job placement of foreign citizens, and skip the whole residence permit process.
