July 6—Ukrainian employers will have to report new hires to the government before the employees begin working under Decree No. 413 approved by the Cabinet of Ministers June 23 and effective on that date.

The decree requires that employers notify the State Fiscal Service about new hires after signing the labor contract but before a new employee actually starts working. Employers must notify a local office of the SFS in the location they are registered as payers of social levies. The decree also introduced a new form to be used by employers to notify the tax agency of a new hire.

Employers with more than five employees must submit notification forms to the SFS electronically using digital signatures.
