KVED сodes are usedduring tax payers’ registration, submitting reports, defining features of taxation, receiving permits and licenses, products certification and in other cases.
Since KVED-2005 shall become invalid from year 2012 executing documents with indication of KVED-2005 codes might cause certain difficulties for business entities, e.g. non-acceptance ofmandatory reporting containing “old” codes. That is why it is recommended for business entities to change respectively during the year 2012 data containing in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities and Individuals-Entrepreneurs and formalize a new Certificate from the Unified State Register of Enterprises and Organizations of Ukraine where new types of KVED shall be stated.
