They also find that growth is attributed to domestic demand driven by consumer optimism. At the same time, there is a strong increase in investments due to the new cycle of European investments.
If you have a business idea, it’s now time to think about how to put it into practice! Increased domestic demand and forecasts for the further growth are surely good news for micro and small entrepreneurs who decide to open the company in the New year!
3. Open a company at the beginning of the New year – business opportunity
To start a business at the beginning of the New year is the easiest also from the point of view of accounting.
With final reports, especially with a final balance or a tax return, if you are keeping your books with normative costs, you will deal at the end of the year. You will only have the costs then. If you are reasonably expecting to make a profit with your business, it’s better to do business for several months in financial year, as your profit will be destributed. This will affect how much tax and contributions you will have to pay in the next financial year.

4. More employees, more customers – business opportunity
An enormous number of micro and small entrepreneurs want to have end consumers. If you plan to open a restaurant, shop or online store, or maybe you are dealing with some other activity that primarily targets end customers, it’s good news for you that there are less unemployed people. Compared to last year, unemployment in Slovenia reduced by almost 15%, while the Employment Service of Slovenia predicts that unemployment will continue to decline. At the end of November, around 82 thousand unemployed were registered at the Employment service. However, the number of employees in the European Union has never been higher than now!

According to the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia, the average monthly salary for October 2017 was 1.1% higher than in September 2017 and 3.4% higher than the salary for October 2016. Thus, in October 2017 the average salary was 1,621.46 eur gross (1,056.47 eur net). The average was higher in the private sector, while in the public sector it was about the same as in the previous month.
Higher average monthly wages may also mean higher disposable income for households. This is another good news for micro and small entrepreneurs who focus primarily on the local market and decide to open the company in the New year.
