“You can only change business and investment condition in the country from the inside. Without exception, all the leaders of foreign companies agree that the investment climate in Ukraine will improve only when the state ceases to consider a private business as an object of relations, and begins to treat it as a full partner.

On October 18, the heads of major Ukrainian and international companies gathered at the 12th Kyiv Post CEO Breakfast. The project partner has traditionally been S&P Investment Risk Management Agency.
Natalya Osadcha, the co-founder of S&P Agency, Ph.D., MBA, investment risk adviser, acted as moderator of the conversation. The main topics of discussion were taxes and their administration. Despite the fact that the state tax collection has become more transparent and less burdensome, there is still a lot to be changed to improve the business climate. So, Ukrainian enterprises continue to face raider captures and checks of dubious legality. Tax disputes often end in long and expensive litigation. Tax operations should be fully translated into the online mode to make them simpler and more transparent.
“The business and investment situation in the country can only be changed from the inside. All without exception, all leaders of foreign companies agree that the investment climate in Ukraine will improve only when the state ceases to consider private business as an object of mutual relations and starts treating it as an equal partner. This is not the case in our country yet”, — commented Natalya Osadcha.
