You are buying an existing company in Slovenia – additional costs
One of the first reasons why entrepreneurs decide to buy an existing company is to avoid costs. They mostly want to avoid depositing initial capital. When registering a limited liability company, it is necessary to pay €7,500 in basic capital. Some think that they can avoid this by buying the company. This is not the case. The previous owners usually withdraw the initial capital. Only then do they sell the company. In order to avoid fines and for the company not to be capital inadequate, you will have to deposit €7,500 after buying the company. This is a big disadvantage because you have already spent money on the purchase of the company, the purchase fee and notary fees.

A new danger – possible hidden debts
When you buy an existing company, you must also accept all previous debts. Of course, you can check some aspects of the company’s operations. Can’t you always check everything. In this case, the new owner would have to settle both existing debts. If you decide to open a new company in Slovenia, you cannot have this kind of problem. If you buy an existing business, you may have more expenses than you wanted. When you buy a business, you don’t always know what you’re going to get. In other words, you are buying a cat in a bag.
