Have you been considering opening a company or expanding your business to Europe but have not yet decided on a destination? Are you also considering to oversee your business first-hand after establishing it? Then consider Slovenia for the possibility to relocate here based on business establishment.
Relocate to Slovenia by establishing a company – conditions of business immigration
Only opening or owning a company in Slovenia does not give you automatic right to also relocate here. The company has to prove active business conduct in order for the representative to be able to apply for business immigration.
The fastest way to prove it is by investing 50.000€ to fixed assets of the company. This means that your company purchases something needed for business conduct. The item depends on your chosen business activity but can range from property, company car, equipment etc. Your company has to make te purchase within 6 months from company establishment. The amount cannot be lower than 50.000€.
The other two options take at least 6 months to fulfill. You can employ an EU citizen for a period of at least 6 months on a full workday. When he is employed with you at least 6 months and you pay him all salaries, you can apply for your work and residence permit.
The last option is usually viable for companies who plan on starting strong with their business activity. If your company has 10.000€ turnover each month for 6 consecutive months, you can also apply for your work and residence permit.
Relocate to Slovenia by establishing a company – process of opening a company
If you have decided on Slovenia as your business destination, you first have to open a company here. The process is very straight-forward. You would have to come to Slovenia for about 14 days to finalize all company registration procedures.
The documents that you need to bring with you are: valid passport, statement about the business address in Slovenia, Slovenian tax number and 7.500€ founding capital. After you make the act of establishment, you have to go to a bank in Slovenia to open a temporary bank account where you deposit the founding capital to.
In 3-5 business days from depositing it, the company is usually registered. At this point the representative has to go back to the bank to open a permanent bank account. When this is done, you can proceed to fulfilling the condition of active business conduct which would enable you to relocate to Slovenia.
