The objective of the authorities is to simplify doing business. To enable entrepreneurs to work simply avoiding contacts with officials and government agencies. Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said during a presentation of the new e-service: state registration of limited liability companies.
The Head of Government noted that earlier, to start up a business it had been necessary to spend days, weeks, and sometimes even years.
"We are simplifying doing business. We have abandoned hundreds of outdated regulations, introduced a new system of risk-based supervision, instead of inspections on formal grounds. Today we are presenting a new service - enterprises, legal entities, limited liability companies (LLC) can register online in three steps. Entrepreneurs no longer need to go anywhere, they can save time, money and do business simply", said Volodymyr Groysman.
At that, submission of documents for the new registration of LLC will be carried out in a completely electronic form, even the decision of the founders will be formed as an electronic document and signed founders with use of electronic signatures.
The service will allow not only to register the company in the USR (United State Register of Legal Entities, Individual Entrepreneurs and Public Organizations of Ukraine), but to submit simultaneously the relevant documents for registration to use the simplified taxation system as well as registration as the VAT payer.
The Head of Government reminded that Ukraine is currently ranked 71st in the Doing Business rating.
"Our ambitious task is to enter top 40. The Government submitted such propositions for the Parliament’s consideration. I hope that the new Parliament will quickly adopt the necessary decisions. This will ensure new investments, workforce and economic development. The main thing is that each entrepreneur could feel this simplification", the PM said.
Currently, Government portal kmu.gov.ua offers 120 e-services available in various areas: social protection, business, transport, finance and taxes, construction and real estate.
Only last year the use of e-services has increased threefold:
