If you have been thinking about opening a company in Slovenia, you have to understand that all company types require a legal representative within the company. We will be explaining who can be a legal representative in a company and what his responsibilities are.
Legal representative of the company in Slovenia, EU
All company types in Slovenia have to appoint at least one legal representative. They can appoint more than one or also appoint a procurator.
The legal representative or management executive is a person how is allowed to lead the company’s business. The company can have one or more representatives. He can either sign agreements with individual representation right, so that each representative can sign agreements on their own and does not require consent of others for the contract to be valid. The company can limit the representative’s power by having joint representation. This means that the signed agreement is only valid if all legal representatives sign off on it.
The legal representative can be both an EU citizen or also a non-EU citizen. This person has to be appointed either in the process of company registration or later added in the business registry. In order to be a legal representative, the shareholders have to add you in the company within the Slovenian business registry.
Difference between legal representative and procurator
Procuring is a special type of authorization, where the appointed procurer gets the right to represent the company when doing business in Slovenia.
A procurator is a business proxy, who can represent the company in its entirety except for burdening real estate or selling it. They also cannot make decisions about closing the company or doing structural changes within the company.
A procurator is not someone who makes decisions within the company and also not responsible for leading the company but has the function of representing the company towards third parties.
