The size and procedure for paying lawyer contributions in 2019

Next year, the amount of the annual contribution of a lawyer to ensure the implementation of lawyer's self-government will be set for UAH 1921 (in accordance with the subsistence minimum established on January 1, 2019).

Regulations on contributions to the implementation of advocate's self-government, approved by the decision of the Council of Advocates of Ukraine of February 16, 2013, No. 72, with subsequent amendments and additions, and Decision of the Council of Advocates of Ukraine dated December 15, 2017, No. 283, stipulate that lawyers shall pay annual contributions by January 31 the current year with two payments according to the following distribution:

- by transferring 70% of the established annual amount to the current account of the relevant council of advocates of the region;
- by transferring 30% of the annual amount to the current account of the National Association of Advocates of Ukraine.

At the same time, it should be noted that the decision of the RAU of December 13, 2018, No. 216 for lawyers of Kyiv establishes a separate procedure for paying an annual contribution to ensure the implementation of lawyer's self-government in 2019, by transferring it by one payment to the current bank account of the National Association of Advocates of Ukraine in the amount of 100% annual contribution.

According to the Regulations, the annual fee is considered paid from the moment of receipt of funds to the bank accounts of the organs of the advocate's self-government. The obligation to pay an annual contribution to the implementation of lawyer's self-government is not considered to be performed by a lawyer if it is not paid in full (except for installment payments), or at the expense of only one of two lawyer's self-government bodies: the Regional Advice Council or the National Association of Advocates of Ukraine.

The deposit can be paid through any banking institution in Ukraine. Receipts can be generated at thelink.
