Taras Rozputenko: Revocation of State Registration Certificate fails to better entrepreneurs’ lives
Kyiv. April 8, 2011
If the certificate of state registration of the legal entities and
individual entrepreneurs is cancelled the life is not suddenly better
for entrepreneurs, what will really make it easier is Internet access to
the Unified State Register of Legal Entities and Individual
Entrepreneurs, considers Taras Rozputenko, an associate with Volkov and Partners Law Firm.
"At present, an information database can be accessed via any computer
connected to the Internet. In Great Britain, the Internet is the way to
access the documents similar to those kept in the Unified State
Register, in particular, right at the web-site of the relative state
agency," commented Mr. Rozputenko to "Interfax-Ukraine" Agency
concerning the law adopted by the government and canceling the
certificate of state registration.
The Lawyer believes, the entrepreneurs have to prove their registration
only electronically via the Internet, instead of obtaining the extract
from the Unified State Register.
"It would be logical to exclude an entrepreneur from the chain of data
exchange between the Unified State Register, entrepreneur and any state
agency that requires a confirmation of such entrepreneur’s registration,
and to entrust the said state agency to obtain the information from the
Unified State Register,” Mr. Rozputenko noted.
In turn, Senior Associate with AstapovLawyers International Law Group
Volodymyr Yakubovskyy emphasized that in case of cancellation of the
state registration certification and simplification of licensing system
to obtain corporate seals, articles of association becomes a key
corporate attribute needed to be closely watched out to manage a
Reportedly, the Law “On Abolition of the Certification of Business
Entity Registration” adopted by the Parliament on Thursday waives such
certification and prescribes to use directly the data excerpted from
Unified State Register of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs to
confirm such registration. Such excerpt is given for free.
If a status of a person needs to be certified by some document, such
person may use an excerpt of the Unified State Register of Legal
Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs or its copy. Alongside, a
notarization of such copy is offered to be waived as the criminal
legislation imposes the responsibility for consistency of the provided
data on a person that submitted such data.
