Company start-up for EU citizens

So, a foreigner from an EU country can register in Slovenia as a s.p. or Ltd. With this in mind, the conditions for a company start-up are the same as for Slovenians. Moreover, here we think of the conditions in Article 10a of the Companies Act-1. Firstly, the EU foreigner will need an identity document and a Slovenian tax number. Secondly, if the address of the company will be at a location of which he is not the (co-)owner, he will need a statement from the owner. Thirdly, he will also need certain documents from his country of origin. These will prove that he is not a tax debtor or criminal. Lastly, the foreigner will set up the sole trader within three days of the start of the procedure at the DATA point. The company start-up (Ltd) takes about a week after the application is sent to the registration court.

What about foreigners from Third countries

The condition for a foreigner from a third country to set up a sole proprietorship is 12 months’ residence in Slovenia. He or she must bring an identity document (residence permit and passport), a Slovenian tax number, evidence from his or her country of origin. Also, he might need a certified statement from the owner of the building for the business address of the Ltd. Without a doubt, it is precisely because of the condition of one year’s residence in Slovenia that many third-country nationals decide to register a Ltd. In this case, this condition does not have to be fulfilled.

Company start-up for foreigners when the Ltd is set up by a foreigner or a foreign legal person from a third country

When a third-country national wishes to register a Ltd in Slovenia, he/she must bring to the registration procedure an identity document, a Slovenian tax number, evidence from his/her country of origin and a certified statement from the owner of the facility for the limited liability company. However, if a foreign company (legal entity) wishes to register a Ltd in Slovenia, these are the necessary documents for company start-up:

  • Slovenian tax number for the company and for the representative of the foreign company in Slovenia, if it will not be the same person and will be a foreigner,
  • translation of an extract from the register of the foreign company,
  • evidence from the home country for the foreign company; and
  • a certified statement from the owner of the building for the limited company.
