Many individuals and companies in Slovenia decide to also open a foreign bank account in another country. A natural person who opened an account abroad, has to register it in 8 days from day of the opening. Accounts opened in the Republic of Slovenia do not need to be reported because the FURS (Financial Administration of Slovenia) obtains the data ex officio. Registration of a foreign bank account is necessary in the case of payment accounts, deposit accounts, custody accounts, etc. FURS points out that registering a foreign bank account with them is needed. If you report it yourself before FURS receives the data on your account abroad, you can avoid fines.

Companies must also make sure that the registration of an account abroad is completed in due time. Only in this way they fulfill their obligations to the tax administration.

All companies must have an open bank account. This is regardless of whether they may not be in business for a certain period of time. You can also use this bank account for running a web-shop.
Doing business without an account is an offense under point 14 a of the first paragraph of Article 397 of ZDavP-2. A sole trader can receive a fine up to EUR 10,000, and a legal entity up to EUR 30,000. The responsible person of the company can also receive a fine for the offense. It can add up to EUR 4,000.
