Main stages of registration

The requirements for the process of registering a financial institution depend on its form. However, there are a few general requirements, which we will now discuss.

Establishment of a legal entity

When included in the register of financial organizations, in most cases, managers use the legal form of LLC. There is an exception 一 registration of a pawnshop. In Ukraine, taking into account the requirements of the legislation, the head can register a pawnshop only in the form of a Full Company (FC). At the same time, an insurance organization can be entered in the register in the form of JSC, FC, ALC.

Authorized capital

The size of the authorized capital is determined by the type of organization being opened, for example:

  • for a pawnshop it is necessary from 500,000 UAH;
  • factoring will require from 3,000,000 UAH;
  • for leasing you need from 3,000,000 UAH;
  • for the exchanger you will need from 5,000,000 UAH.

The main requirement for the formation of the authorized capital is the use of funds, the origin of which is confirmed by the relevant documents. At the same time, all funds are deposited by the founder to a special account, where they must be kept in full until the package of documents is considered by the NBU and permission is received to provide financial services.

Preparation and submission of documents to the NBU

Before starting activities, the head must register the organization with the NBU. An appeal to the NBU should be preceded by an audit report, which confirms that the formed authorized capital complies with regulatory requirements. When submitting documents to the NBU, the company must have an appointed manager and chief accountant.

An obligatory step is also the licensing of financial organizations with the receipt of relevant documents.

Registration in the State Financial Monitoring Service

At the final stage of creating a financial company, the head should register the legal entity with the State Financial Monitoring Service. To do this, you must first appoint a specialist responsible for financial monitoring within the organization.
