From the proposed options, we envisage that: A legal entity must pay a fee of UAH 20,400 for each person booked; there must be no salary and tax arrears; and as an additional condition, the average monthly salary must be UAH 36,336. The sole proprietor must have a monthly income of UAH 61,200 and must have conducted business activities during the previous year. Additional condition — he/she must be registered as an entrepreneur no later than six calendar months before the entry into force of this Law. Further developments will show which draft law will be adopted, but we can already say that economic booking will become an important tool for stabilizing and developing Ukrainian business in the face of constant changes in the market.
