Most common company form – LTD company
LTD company is a limited liability company. It requires at least 1 shareholder and 1 director. They can be the same person. In an LTD, the minimal share capital is 7500€. Additionally, the representatives and shareholders also need a Slovenian tax number. Already in the process of company registration, you will need a business address for your company. You can start an LTD company even if you have no company abroad. It will mean that you as a natural person will be shareholder and provide the share capital. The LTD company form can include various business activities within the act of establishment so you are not limited to one activity.
Expanding your business abroad? Consider registering a subsidiary!
If you already have experience in business and would like to expand your business to the European market, you can consider opening a subsidiary. It is also an LTD company, with the only difference that the owner in this case is a foreign legal entity. Otherwise, when it comes to company form, the same rules apply as described in the previous paragraph. The upside of having a subsidiary is that you already have a strong and developed country behind your new company, which can provide both funds and a good name for your services or products.
If you plan on marketing your existing services in Slovenia, opening a branch office would be a suitable company form for you
A branch office is the only company form that is not a separate legal entity. It is part of the parent company and hence does not require share capital for registration. The branch can only offer the same services that the parent company has registered, so it is mostly used for marketing services. A branch registration happens at the notary. It is also the only company type that does not require a separate bank account. This means, you can use your parent company’s bank account even for transactions in Slovenia.
Who can open sole proprietorship?
Many foreigners would prefer to open a sole proprietorship. It is a company form connected directly to the natural person and requires no share capital. Also, it means that the natural person bears all liability for business conduct. But not every natural person can open a sole proprietorship immediately in Slovenia. Only EU citizens can open sole proprietorship without prior residence in Slovenia. All other non-EU citizens only have the possibility to open a sole proprietorship after 1 year of living in Slovenia.
