Develop your business in Slovenia – a checklist

When starting to do business in a new country, it is good to come prepared. So, that before you start to develop your business, you know exactly what you have to prepare in advance and what you can expect. This is why we have prepared a short checklist that will enable you to have all the important answers before even starting your business in Slovenia.

Develop your business in Slovenia – which company type suits you best?

If you have experience from doing business abroad, you can take advantage of those skills and also your existing company to expand your business to Slovenia. When you have an active company somewhere else, you can do business in Europe by establishing a subsidiary or a branch office in Slovenia. This will enable you to introduce your existing services or products to a new market and to develop it even further here.

But do not be discouraged if you are new to entrepreneurship. You can establish a brand-new LTD company here as a natural person. In Slovenia there is no requirement that only residents of Slovenia can establish an LTD company – you can open it without having lived here before. Hence, Slovenia is really open to attracting new and seasoned entrepreneurs to participate in its stable and vibrant market.

What comes after company registration?

As soon as your company is registered, you have to make arrangements about what type of business you develop. Already when registering the company, you would decide on the business activities. Should you later want to add or remove them, you can do so at our VEM point. Certain business activities are regulated and require a license before you can carry them out. Those business activities are for example tourism agency, pharmacy, certain types of construction, international transportation.

Also, if you plan to expand your services across Slovenian borders to other EU countries, you can do so but firstly it is best to enter the VAT system. Having a VAT number would enable you to have clients, buyers and suppliers across the European union.

When you develop your business in a new country it is also vital to decide which employees you plan to employ in your company. If they are EU citizens, you can employ them immediately after the company is registered. But if they are non-EU citizens, you have to obtain a work and residence permit for them beforehand. For that, your Slovenian company has to fulfill certain conditions for business immigration.
