Spotlight On: Ukraine
Global Workforce Mobility Solution - Free 15 minute consultation!
Despite ongoing tensions with neighbouring Russia, Europe’s second-largest country has a varied and abundant landscape offering opportunities for tourists, agriculture and industry alike.
Mountains, Black Sea coastline and broad agricultural plains are widely utilised by Western and Russian industry; it is one of the world’s largest grain exporters and has often been described as a “global bread basket”. The country also has large interests in the manufacture of aeronautical and industrial equipment.
IT is a rapidly growing sector in Ukraine; it has ranked as having the 4th largest number of certified IT professionals in the world. Large tech corporations like Siemens, Samsung, Oracle, Cisco and Softserve are developing their local research and development operations as Ukraine attempts to make the move from the world’s “bread basket” to the world’s “brain basket”.

Global Workforce Mobility Solution
Mauve Group can support employment of local nationals in Ukraine through our Global Workforce Mobility Solution, similar to an Employer of Record service.
Mauve has a company set up in Ukraine which will employ the worker, and register them on the local payroll for tax and social security deductions. Our local representative will ensure the employee is correctly registered by obtaining a tax identification code from the local inspectorate, if the worker does not already possess this- the tax code is a legal requirement for all workers in Ukraine. Our representative can also assist with the opening of a local bank account if required; the local salary must be paid in hryvnia to this account.
Foreign national workers require a work permit to work compliantly in Ukraine. Our local representative will make the application with the authorities, and the worker must take the notarized approval to the Ukrainian embassy in their home country in order to complete the application for the work ‘D’ visa. Once they have entered Ukraine they must then apply for a residence permit within 90 days of arrival. The process takes 4-8 weeks once the application has been filed with the authorities, pending any internal delays on the side of the authorities.
These services are available as standalone services or as a package; whatever your requirement, our sales team will build a bespoke package that works effectively for you.
