On 21 June 2018 the Ukrainian Parliament adopted a law “On currency and currency operations” (the “Law”) *designed to ease the existing currency control regulations in Ukraine.
Unlike the previous legislation, this Law establishes a new rule “anything that is not explicitly prohibited is permitted”.
Among the most recognisable changes introduced by the Law are the following:
abolishment of the requirement to obtain a license for investing abroad for individuals and legal entities;
it is no longer required to register loans provided by non-residents with the Nationalbank of Ukraine;
no maximum term for settlement of liabilities under foreign trade operations, etc.
The Law takes effects even months after its signing by the President of Ukraine and its official publication.
