The company setup in Slovenia – LTD which you open as a natural person

Setting up a LTD company – the owner is a legal entity
In case you have an existing LTD company abroad, you can open the subsidiary of the same busienss in Slovenia. In that case, the owner of your Slovenian company is your parent company. Here, the parent company pays the capital. In addition to the Slovenian tax number for the director, we will also need to obtain the tax number for the parent company. For these purposes, you would need to prepare an extract from the court register of the parent company that is not older than 30 days. This is a completely independent form of the company and can do various business activities with it.
The company setup in Slovenia – a branch office
How can you expand your business to EU? You can also open a branch office. A branch office, on the other hand, is not a separate company. It depends on the parent company. You do not need any start-up capital to open it. Registration is done with a notary, but based on your authorization, we can still do it. But the branch can only perform the same activity as the parent company. You also cannot choose a new name for it. It has to be the same as the parent company, just with the addition “branch in Slovenia”. Our legal experts can also help you to decide which company setup in Slovenia which is best for you.
Doing business abroad
Do you plan to also work in other EU countries? You can do it with the company you open in Slovenia. The company can also perform works abroad, in other EU countries. There are some rules for that. Before you can send your workers for a certain period of time to work, for example, to Germany, your company in Slovenia must be registered for at least 2 months. Also, posted workers need to be registered for social security by a Slovenian company at least 30 days before you can post them abroad. Finally, they can go to work in other EU lands via A1 forms.
