Relocation of business from Ukraine to Slovakia

relocation of business from ukraine
Due to the armed conflict in Ukraine, many companies operating there have faced the necessity to relocate their business abroad. Slovakia is one of the most frequently chosen locations by Ukrainian entrepreneurs, especially due to its proximity, similar language and culture. 
Currently, around 2 174 companies with Ukrainian capital operate in Slovakia.

Ukraine currently ranks 5th in the ranking of the most frequent foreign owners of our companies. Due the military attack on Ukraine, this number will certainly grow significantly in the near future.

The Slovak government and non-governmental organisations undertake numerous initiatives aimed at supporting Ukrainian citizens fleeing the war and helping Ukrainian entrepreneurs to relocate their companies to Slovakia.
