What is LLC? LLC is an abbreviation of the phrase limited liability company. Since in Ukraine two main languages ​​are used in colloquial and written speech, the LLC form is also often used in Ukrainian - Tovaristvo z obmezhenoi vidpovidalnistyu (abbreviated TOV).

Registration of LLC is a necessary procedure if you decide to legally start business activities in Ukraine. A limited liability company (LLC) is a popular form of business organization because it allows owners to limit their personal liability for actions taken by the company; the founders are also not personally liable for the debts or obligations of the company.

Choosing the name of your LLC

The name that you choose for your LLC must comply with the laws of Ukraine. In accordance with the legislation of Ukraine, it is not allowed to assign a newly opened company a name that is a duplicate of existing business names (that is, they are identical). The name of the company must include the name of the legal form and the proper distinctive name. Punctuation marks (periods, commas, pluses, etc.) are allowed in the name.

We recommend choosing a firm name that correctly represents your business. Since there is no exact formula for choosing the best name, we advise you to adhere to the following guidelines when choosing a name:

  • choose a name different from others;

Registration of LLC in Kiev. Starting of work.

To start preparing documents for registration of LLC in Ukraine, we need our completed application form, which we send to you at your request.

Information required for registration:

  • the name of the LLC;
  • future location address of LLC in Ukraine;
  • method of formation and size of the authorized capital;
  • contact phone / fax of LLC;
  • LLC email address (if present);
  • type of prospective activities of the LLC;
  • the size of the shares of each of the LLC participants (if the number is more than one);
  • when the authorized capital will be form by property - a list of this property with an indication of its value and an indication of which founder contributes which property;
  • preferred taxation system.

Decide how your LLC will be managed.

Before registering a LLC, you have to choose which authorities will manage your company, their composition and powers, how they will make decisions, who will manage the company's property, and how your LLC will work in general.

In most cases, the management authorities of an LLC are the general meeting of the company's participants - the supreme management authoritiy and the director - the executive authority. In more complex management structures, at the discretion of the owners, a collegial executive authority - the Directorate and control authority - the Supervisory Board, the Audit Commission, and others can be introduced. The supreme management authority makes global decisions on the activities of the company: of the registration and liquidation of the company, of the appointment and dismissal of the head, on the approval of the annual balance sheet, on the limitation of the powers of the Director, on the acceptance / exclusion of participants in / from the company, and others.

LLC Charter.

Registration of LLC cannot be without registering the Charter of LLC. Recently, LLC activities have been possible in two ways:

  • on the basis of the Charter, the standard provisions of which are registered with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine (model Charter);
  • on the basis of the Charter, certified by the Supreme management authority of the company.

The model form of the charter contains the minimum provisions under which an LLC can operate. Its use is mainly suitable for LLC with one founder, where he is also a director. Since in this case management is carried out solely by one person, the emergence of contradictions between the owners and directors is impossible.

Due to the fact that the types of activities, the procedure and conditions for the functioning of each LLC are different, the developed Charters cannot and will not look the same. The charter of an LLC with several owners at the step of set up a company should be as clearly thought out. In most cases, you should consult experienced lawyers to prepare your charter. However, most of Charters should include the following basic elements:

  • the rights and obligations of the participants in relation to the LLC. It is necessary to indicate what each member of the LLC must do in order to contribute to the LLC;
  • how the governing authorities of the LLC will vote, including the order of the voting structure used and the number of votes (or percentage of votes) given to each participant;
  • how profits and losses will be distributed between the LLC and the participants;
  • LLC governing authorities;
  • rules for holding annual meetings and voting on important issues;
  • rules on redemption of a participant's share or rules on buying and selling, which determine what happens when a participant wants to sell his share or the procedure for transferring a share in another way (due to death or disability);
  • the procedure for increasing / decreasing the size of the authorized capital.

IMPORTANT! INNOVATION! Please note that the Charter of an LLC must be developed in accordance with the Law of Ukraine "On Limited and Additional Liability Companies" dated June 17, 2018.

According to the Final and Transitional Provisions of the Law, all LLCs and ALCs must bring their Charters in line with its norms within 1 year (no later than June 18, 2019).

You can learn more about the nuances of bringing the Charter into compliance GO TO THE LINK.

In the charter, we do not recommend allowing ambiguous interpretations of its provisions. The wording should be simple to understand and unambiguous.

Legal address of LLC (location of LLC).

If you plan to be engaged in production or trade, we recommend choosing the location of the company (office) in its closest location to the workshop, warehouse. The close location of the office will have a positive effect on the company's activities. This achieves: a significant saving in time for communication between the office / production, signing the necessary documents, reducing fuel costs.

When you will choose the address of the company, we recommend signing an agreement for the provision of services with Ukrposhta. It is necessary because when the correspondence will arrives, the responsible postal employee sees and knows that your company is really located at this address. At the same time, letters will be delivered to you promptly and in time. Otherwise, the company may not receive / miss an important letter (for example, from the tax office, court, law enforcement agencies), which may entail various negative consequences.

Obtain the necessary business licenses, permits.

Permitting requirements will vary depending on your area or even according to the area in which you plan to do business.

For example, if you will open a restaurant, you must have the appropriate licenses for alcohol, tobacco, have the permission of the department of sanitary and epidemiological services, state supervision and others. City district administrations or village executive committees may also have information on what types of licenses you need, how to apply for them, and what the fees will be.

In addition, some LLC approvals can be obtained and updated via the Internet or by mail.

Opening a bank account LLC.

Equally important in this respect is the choice of the servicing bank, which you can trust to keep their assets. Check the reliability of the bank, in particular, for financial indicators, credit ratings, national ratings, availability of information in open sources about solvency, money laundering, violation of regulations, validity of the license, searches conducted, and the presence of other problems.

Before opening a bank account, you will need to have a number in the register of legal entities indicated on the inventory, as well as cards with sample signatures. Check with your bank about your tariff plan options that best suit your business needs.

If you have already chosen a bank, get from the service manager a list of the necessary documentation that must be provided to open an account. This list may differ for each bank according to their internal instructions.
