What is a subsidiary and how does it differ from a branch office?

A subsidiary is a popular choice of company type for those foreigners who already have an existing company abroad and want to expand their business in Slovenia. It is an LTD company, where the shareholder is not a natural person but a foreign legal entity. When it is being established, it requires 7.500€ founding capital that the parent company has to provide. Additionally, you will also have to present Slovenian tax numbers for the parent company and the representatives. For company registration, you have to come to Slovenia to both register it and open a bank account for it. In the process of registration, you will also have to provide proof of the company’s business address and an extract from the business registry of the parent company that is not older than 3 months.

In comparison to the branch office, a subsidiary is an independent legal entity. It means that is can do business without the involvement of the parent company. The subsidiary can register different business activities then the parent company. Hence, you can offer additional services, not just the ones that you have registered within the foreign parent company. A branch office does not require founding capital while the subsidiary does. But a branch is completely financially dependent on the parent company.
