During almost two years of war, activities of local and foreign NGOs became an integral part of the resistance to the aggression of the russian federation. Meanwhile, numerous challenging legal aspects of NGO activities in Ukraine are crucial.
Thus, we propose discussing the legal aspects of NGO activities through two years of martial law in Ukraine. Our webinar will be devoted to the legal peculiarities of NGO activities in Ukraine, the updates in Ukrainian legislation concerning NGO activities, including the new procedure for importing humanitarian aid, the review of the main aspects of establishing and operating an NGO, as well as highlighting the most pressing issues related to their legal status and operation in the current situation in Ukraine.
We invite you to join us in order to receive useful information and prepare yourself for the effective implementation and operations of non-profit initiatives.
Matters for discussion:
🎯 How can a foreign non-governmental organization conduct activities in Ukraine during martial law, and what are the main differences between NGO legal presence organization forms?
🎯 How to incorporate the legal presence of a foreign non-governmental organization and legalize the staying of foreign staff in Ukraine?
🎯 What are the features of opening a bank account for non-governmental organizations and carrying out financial transactions during martial law?
🎯 What are the main ongoing legal issues in NGO daily activity?
🎯 What is the procedure for importing humanitarian assistance to Ukraine in 2024?
🎯 What are the peculiarities of NGOs’ taxation during martial law?
