Types of vehicle

What types of corporate vehicle to hold real estate assets are available to investors in this country?



Ukrainian law provides for the following corporate vehicles:

  • a limited liability company;
  • an additional liability company;
  • a joint-stock company (private or public);
  • a partnership; and
  • a commandite partnership.

A limited liability company is the best vehicle for real estate investment in Ukraine for the following reasons:

  • there is no need to issue shares and register them with the State Commission for Securities and the Stock Market;
  • the corporate governance structure is relatively simple and more flexible;
  • there are no requirements as to the minimum amount of charter capital; and
  • the number of participants is unlimited.
