IT services VAT-able again!

Issue 37, July 2011.
Will it hit Lviv IT services providers? During the last few years Lviv has become one of the most rapidly growing centres of the IT industry in Ukraine and has every chance to develop further in this direction. Lviv is one of the regional leaders of the IT industry in Ukraine (along with Kharkiv and Kyiv) due to competitively priced labour, a high number of technically trained and skilled people, low cost of services and relatively-developed infrastructure. International demand serves as a trigger for Ukrainian (including Lviv) IT industry development. Local Ukrainian IT companies have also started to see more opportunities on the domestic market. Hopefully the growing number of orders from foreign and local clients will drive competition among software companies, which in turn will strive to provide better quality products and services.
