Frequent Questions and Answers

ClarusApex supports its clients with complete solutions and not simple standard service products.

We utilize our experiences with the Ukrainian labor market and business environment to create unique out of the box solutions. 

Many new foreign market participants believe that they could run their business in Ukraine like at home. 

They tend to completely underestimate the legal and administrative complexities to do business in Ukraine.

The management of personal in Ukraine is much more formal and complex compared to Western European countries. 

Their Ukrainian competitors know their boundaries and work arounds but international companies in Ukraine do not have such luxury.

New market participants get their first governmental audits between 3-5 years after establishment. At this point it is almost impossible or at least very expensive and time consuming to correct mistakes related to Ukrainian labor laws and payroll calculations.

Outsourcing payroll accounting with ClarusApex offers a solid firewall protecting the business from early mistakes. Setting up standard HR procedures and documentation systems build a  foundation for employee satisfaction, retention and future business growth.

Outsourcing of human resources and payroll accounting is significantly cheaper and compliant compared to trying to get along with a none compliant management and salary payment of your staff.

ClarusApex supports individuals in the establishment of their Ukrainian work and residence permit when they do not have any company sponsorship. 

We also help foreign workers to immigrate to Ukraine to start their own business or to find work with Ukrainian companies.

Compliance is at the core of ClarusApex as German owned and managed company. 

Like our clients our business is under constant threats by imprecise, vague and sometimes misleading legislations. We are also getting regular audits with the purpose to extract penalties from our business. 

As foreign company we cannot act like local businesses. Our only defense and the right way forward to succeed in Ukraine is to engage in the highest level of compliance and ethical standards.

Doing the right things means more work but in fact we found that upholding our values and business culture pays off in the long term.

Ukraine Market Entry

Clarus is specialized in the market entry support for international companies into the Ukrainian market. This process starts with market studies, recruitment, outstaffing and in the case of larger projects the complete project infrastructure as well.

This process allows our clients like Shell to enter the Ukrainian market without the need to establish a legal entity and to invest a lot of money upfront.

As side effect of our activities we are gaining always a large candidate pool of Ukrainian but also international candidates where we are also looking for employment and contractor opportunities outside of Ukraine.
