The purpose of the article is to conduct a comparative legal study of laws and regulations that determine the legal framework for the implementation of currency regulation in some foreign countries and in Ukraine and to define ways for improving domestic legislation in this area on this basis. The subject of the study is the experience of currency regulation in some European countries, USA, China, and Ukraine. Methodology. The research is based on a comparison of foreign exchange regulation in Ukraine and abroad. Based on the analysis of peculiarities of the state regulation of currency circulation in Great Britain, Germany, France, Poland, the USA, China, and in some other countries, the advantages and disadvantages of different regimes of state control over currency circulation are determined: from the regime of the floating rate to the rigorous state control. On the basis of the comparative legal study of certain provisions of the administrative legislation of Ukraine, the possibilities and limits of the application of positive foreign experience in this area are determined. The results of the study showed that in order to implement foreign exchange management experience, it is necessary to postpone the final transition to establishing a floating rate regime, reinforcing state interference. At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen currency control not only over the implementation of foreign exchange operations but also over the activities of entities that determine the state policy in the field of currency regulation, as well as directly implement the relevant activities using the instruments determined by provisions of the current legislation. Practical implications. The positive experience of the formation of the foreign exchange market in foreign countries shows that the gradual transition from a fixed to a floating exchange rate is the beginning of a natural market exchange rate formation, equalization of the balance of payments, and the gradual liberation of the national economy from the pressure of administrative and corruption restrictions. Value/originality. Conducting a comparative analysis of foreign exchange regulation in foreign countries is the basis for developing the most promising directions for the development of domestic legislation in this area.
