Decisions of administrative authorities in Slovenia are not always correct and lawful

Even if the decision of an administrative authority seems very professional and correct, check with your legal advisor if this is in fact the case. Decisions of administrative authorities have to include the necessary contents in accordance with the valid legislation (Administrative Procedure Act and Sectoral Laws). Also, the decisions have to be appropriately explained.

You can contest the decision of administrative authorities because of a significant procedural breach. In addition, you can contest it if they findings to not match the actual state or are incomplete. Appeals are also possible if the usage of material law was incorrect. But it is difficult for you to assess if the authority has done one of these breaches if you do not have the appropriate skills in these legal proceedings. This is especially true if you are a new entrepreneur and have opened a company in Slovenia not too long ago.

We present to you several cases, where clients have been successful in appealing against administrative authorities in 2018.

  1. Our client received a denied claim to get a return of the fee for municipal waste disposal because they never started with construction under the enforceable construction permit. The municipality denied the claim for the return of more than 15.000,00 EUR fee for municipal waste disposal. The reason was the claim for the return was time-barred. The decision was equipped with the explanations and quotations from the Code of Obligations. On first sight, the decision looked correct.
