Alongside this, we send you a long list of available co-working office spaces according to your requirements. You look through the variants and shortlist the ones you like.


Our lawyers negotiate with the landlord on the lease agreement and discuss all rent details.


At the same time, we purchase all the necessary equipment for your employee to have everything they need at the workplace.


Two weeks before the first working day, we ask your new employee for documents and assign them to a personal accountant for payroll and taxes services.


Your own R&D department is all set up! You then scale up this workflow to hire more programmers…

Ukraine for Offshore Software R&D

Big pool of IT talents

There are nearly 200,000 qualified software engineers in Ukraine, many that are well-known for their expert skills. Ukrainian engineers are smart, flexible, creative, and open-minded. Due to a long engineering tradition, they have gained deep technical expertise and broad experience. They often win international IT awards and take leading positions in the competitions, as well as get job invitations from Google, Amazon, Reddit, and Apple.

Government tax incentives

The Ukrainian government offers a special tax incentive for IT specialists, which allows them to pay only 5% of income for taxes. With the proper structuring model, you won’t need large up-front investments for your turnkey R&D center here. This allows for more opportunities in building your software research and development center here in Ukraine

Emerging startup ecosystem

Driven by the interest in technologies and innovations, more and more engineers experiment with new IT products and try starting up their own tech businesses. Plenty of award-winning startups were born in Ukraine: Petcube, MacPaw, Jooble, Ajax, Grammarly, Depositphotos, Preply, YouScan, etc. Learn more about the booming tech community in Ukraine here.

Close proximity

The geographic position of Ukraine makes it easy to travel from Europe. It takes 2-3 hours to fly from London, Oslo, Berlin, or Paris to Kyiv. American companies also enjoy the similar work ethic with their Ukrainian research and development center. Having good comprehension of English and a matching mindset, developers in Ukraine are easy to work with.

How much does a turnkey R&D center cost?

It depends on the number of software research and development services you’d like to have. Interested in hiring developers only? No problem. Or maybe you need just legal support? OK. With our flexible engagement model, you will have comfortable pricing. Regulate costs easily by paying only for what you use. To calculate your expenses on the offshore development team, go to the R&D calculator on our website.

Software R&D team Vs extended team – what’s the difference?

You manage a software R&D team independently with no intermediaries, while extended development teams are supervised by vendors who assign project managers to help you with onboarding, training, etc. You pay a one-time fee per hire for your R&D team member with no buy-out fees in the future, while for an extended team you’ll be charged monthly and pay an additional fee to buy out the team.

How much time will it take to set up a software R&D office in Ukraine?

It usually takes us 3-5 weeks to establish a software R&D center. Mostly it depends on the number and type of IT specialists you want. We guarantee a fully equipped development office with 5 seasoned software engineers in Ukraine within 1 month. All of this can be further supported by our accounting & legal teams, so that your offshore R&D center works like clockwork.

What services does your offshore R&D solution include?

Alcor provides software R&D as a service for tech companies in Ukraine to get an all-in-one place solution. We will build your software R&D department in Ukraine with all back-office functions, including IT recruitment, real estate, office maintenance, legal support, HR payroll & accounting, and other operational services.
