Are you purchasing a truck in the EU for your transport company? Why not open a transport company in Slovenia and purchase a truck and obtain the license for international transport, while at the same time solve the problem with CEMT permits?
If you are thinking of opening a transport company in Slovenia and are buying a truck in the EU at the same time for your existing company in the country that is not a member of the EU, we recommend that you open a transport company in the EU. Based on purchasing a truck in the minimal amount of 9.000 EUR you can submit the application for the license for international transport in Slovenia. It is better to do it this way because if you buy your truck for the company that is located in a country outside of the EU and would later transfer it to the Slovenian company, they would be considered as used vehicles and you would pay 16% – 22% customs rate in order to import the vehicles. The customs rate is paid when importing, whereas the VAT is paid later when calculated.
How to obtain the license for international transport for the Slovenian company?
A company that wants to conduct the transport business activity has to obtain a license. A license is a document with which the company proves that they have the right to perform transportations listed in the document.
Immediately after the registration of the LTD you can start the process of obtaining the license for international transport for goods with vehicles weighing over 3,5 tons. You can apply if you have proven your financial capability and obtained a responsible person of the company – the manager of vehicles. We can help you to find a manager of vehicles and can refer you to the appropriate institution where you can be trained for a manager of vehicles after obtaining a residence permit in Slovenia. You can prove your financial capability by purchasing or leasing a vehicle, where the cost was 9.000 EUR for the first vehicle and 5.000 EUR for every following vehicle.
The license is issued by the appropriate institution – in Slovenia it is the Chamber of Commerce of Slovenia and the Chamber of Craft of Slovenia, respectively. By the legislation of the European Union, you can obtain the license for international transport for a period of 10 years, while the Road Transport ACT (ZPCP) determines that the license should be obtained for a period of 5 years.
The institution issues the License in 15 days after receiving the complete documentation. The original issue of the license has to be kept at the seat of the company, but a copy has to be kept in each vehicle. License is not transferable.
The company DATA gladly helps their clients in the process of company registration, as well as with bureaucratic questions when obtaining the license. Experienced business consultants and lawyers will gladly help you to obtain different licenses and permits in Slovenia.
