Enterprises with foreign founders are obliged to pay taxes in the same amounts and at the same time as any other legal entities in Ukraine. For such enterprises, there are no tax privileges, but, at the same time, there are no additional tax burdens.

The tax system in Ukraine is divided into two main categories: the general taxation system and the simplified taxation system.

The general system of taxation.

Enterprises that are assigned to the general taxation system must pay income tax and value added tax.

The basic rate of income tax for all types of enterprises, (incl.  foreign founders)  is - 18% from 01.01.2014.

The basic rate for the value-added tax is 20%.

Tax benefits for enterprises with foreign founders.

A simplified system of taxation implies the payment of a single tax. Details on the single tax for legal entities >>>
