There are several possible regimes of tax treatment for real estate transaction in Ukraine, which depend on status of the seller (as far as the rule is that taxed not the transaction itself, but profits received in the result of the same with certain exemptions).

Private (natural) persons including non-residents of Ukraine are tax treated on the grounds of the Law of Ukraine "On Personal Income Tax" effective as of January 1, 2004 with numerous subsequent amendments, which are continuously included into the same by Ukrainian Parliament (Verkhovna Rada Ukrayiny).

Corporate entities including non-residents of Ukraine and registered offices (representations) of foreign (non-resident) corporate entities in Ukraine are tax treated on the grounds of the Law of Ukraine "On Enterprise Profit Tax" effective as of January 1, 1995 with numerous subsequent amendments.
