Are you considering trading electronics in the EU by opening a company in Slovenia because of easier business conduct in the EU?
Primarily, foreign entrepreneurs consider opening a company in Slovenia and obtaining a VAT identification number for the purposes of import and export of electronics to the EU. If you are planning to import and export electronics through Slovenia to the EU, it is necessary for your company to enter to the VAT system. We recommend that you apply for a VAT identification number immediately after the registration of the company. Bear in mind that a company does not automatically obtain a VAT number just by company registration. After registration, you have to submit the application for a VAT identification number. The process of obtaining a VAT identification number lasts about 30 days from the submission of the full documentation and in the process itself, you have to prove that you plan to conduct business actively. The proof of active business conduct are usually pro-forma invoices, advance payments, contracts, letters of intent, enrollment in insurance and similar. The more evidence you can gather on active business conduct, the sooner you will obtain a VAT identification number.
What type of company for trading electronics can you open in Slovenia if you are a foreigner, a citizen of a country that is not a member of the EU?
Foreign entrepreneurs can open a private company limited by shares (LTD) or a branch office. You can open an LTD easily at our »One-Stop Shop« DATA, but a branch office has to be opened at the notary, which we at DATA can also do based on a power-of-attorney. The minimal founding capital in an LTD company is 7.500 EUR. There is no need for founding capital when opening a branch office.
