Representative office of your company in Slovenia, EU – what is a representative office?
A representative office is not a separate legal entity. It is a part of the parent company, which is located on another location or also in another country. It is usually used to advertise and market services or products of the parent company. Registering such an office can help you to do business in Europe.
When registering a representative office in another country, bear in mind that you can only register business activities that the parent company has registered. So, a this office is actually a branch of the parent company used to promote services or products abroad.
As it is not a legal entity, it also does not require founding capital for company registration. Only a notary can register this type of company.
