In Ukraine a non-resident must have an individual tax number for some official procedures and actions. First of all, it concerns purchase of immovable and movable (car) property, establishment of companies and corporations, opening a bank account, etc. Without Ukrainian tax code it’ll be impossible to carry out the above mentioned actions.
Offices of State Tax Service of Ukraine are authorized to issue Ukrainian individual tax numbers only. Main Directorate of State Tax Service of Ukraine in Kyiv provides this service the best way, compared to other offices throughout Ukraine. Actually, this process is not so complicated, but it may be faster and sometimes even cheaper to order it with a professional Ukrainian translation company. Irrespective of the current stay of a foreign citizen in Ukraine, the Ukrainian tax code can be issued for residents of Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhie, Odessa, Lviv, Chernivtsi, Uzhhorod and other cities of Ukraine.
However, besides providing an individual tax number to Ukrainian authorities, in some cases a non-resident of Ukraine can be required a Ukrainian police clearance certificate and to present official documents from Ukraine abroad they should have the apostille/legalization stamp.
