Law of Ukraine 2019
"On Accounting and Financial Reporting
in Ukraine"

Fast facts
The European Union obligated the Ukrainian government to bring the national accounting and reporting standards in line with the UN laws. It is against this background that the Ukrainian parliament (the Verhovna Rada) adopted amendments to the Law "On Accounting and Financial Reporting in Ukraine."

The need-to-know facts
In general, the amendments to the list of requirements for the reporting submission have been changed since 2017. Yet, the regulations on regulatory submission and publishing enter into force in 2019. The requirements to the financial reporting package are directly related to the type of an enterprise.
The need-to-consider facts
Before the financial reporting forms are completed, the basic requirements to their preparation and submission should be considered. At first, the type of your enterprise shall be defined and the terms for reporting submission shall be determined. The Classifier is your helping tool.
Classifier filling:
  1. Updated criteria for classification of enterprises according to their size
  2. Complete portfolio requirements to enterprises depending on their size and type of activity
