According to the legislation of Ukraine reorganization is a form of termination of a legal entity as a result of the conclusion of the various types of corporate agreements.

• Joining - involves the termination of an enterprise as a legal person and the transferring of the property rights and obligations to another entity - a legal entity.

• Division - provides termination (liquidation) of a company as a legal entity and transmission of all of its property rights and obligations to several companies - entities that are created as a result of the reorganization by distribution act (balance) in the relevant parts. Thus, the company that operated prior to the reorganization is liquidated, but instead of it two or more new independent businesses are created.

• Separation – is a selection of the unit (units) of the enterprise (association) and creation of an independent enterprise on its basis or enterprise’s leaving the association.
