Business derived from Ukraine more than two billion dollars

In 2017, the amount of repatriation of dividends by foreign investors amounted to $1.8 billion.

The amount of repatriation of dividends to foreign investors in 2017 amounted to $1.8 billion this was announced by Deputy head of the National Bank of Ukraine Oleg Churiy, writes Mirror of week Thursday, 4 Dec.

“According to operational data, the amount of repatriation of $1.8 billion Is more than we expected. Perhaps this is due to the fact that at the end of the year we allowed the repatriation of dividends until 2014, probably the company more actively began to withdraw dividends. But we don’t see the problem in that the amount of the repatriation was a bit more than expected,” he said.

According to Curia, in the nearest future the NBU will send a request to local banks to explore the desire of their clients to repatriate dividends for 2017.

“Our procedure is the need to assess the probable outflow of foreign currency, i.e. the purchase of foreign currency and repatriation abroad, the impact of this outflow on the currency market. To this end, in the near future we will provide Ukrainian banks with the request on the desire of their clients to repatriate dividends for 2017. After we gather information from banks will do some assessment and on its basis we will carry out liberalization”, he added.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that in January-December 2017 the budget received 792,9 billion, which is 28.7% more than in 2016.
