Share capital is not the only cost you have to consider when registering the company. Your company would require a business address already in the process of company registration. A business address can be a commercial or residential property and you need permission from the owner to register your company’s address there. You can also use services of virtual office, like the service we also provide at Data d.o.o.

It is an office with governmental license to perform company registration. Data d.o.o. is also such an licensed office. The company registration process is free-of-charge for LTD companies at all VEM points in Slovenia.
What about the costs for your company after registration?
When the company is registered, you can use the share capital to cover business expenses. In addition to paying the office (virtual or actual office), you will also have expenses of salaries if you plan on employing workers within your company. The costs for their salary depend on the amount of their wage, which you can check in our salary calculator.
