Residential property as a business opportunity in Slovenia, EU – establishing the company in Slovenia
Most non-EU citizens cannot purchase property in Slovenia as natural persons. Also, if you plan on using the property as a business activity, you would need to have a legal entity through which you would rent out this residential property.
A foreigner can establish a LTD company. For that the shareholders need to provide 7.500€ founding capital. Shareholders and representatives would also need Slovenian tax numbers to register the company. They all need to come to Slovenia to perform company registration and open the corporate bank account. Additionally, a company needs a business address where it would have official business seat.
With all those documents, you can make the act of establishment and open the temporary bank account of the company. To this account, you deposit 7.500€. The court registers the company within 3-5 business days after depositing the capital. Afterwards you would activate the permanent bank account and your company can officially start doing business.
Residential property as a business opportunity in Slovenia, EU- what are the possibilities for business conduct?
After you establish a company you can purchase real estate. If you also want to rent it out to tenants, you need to have the appropriate business activity registered within the company. This would allow you to legally issue invoices to tenants and generate income for your company. You can rent out the apartment or house as long-term rent as well as short-term holiday rent.
In addition to residential property, you can also purchase commercial property such as offices. These you can also rent out to companies looking for their business space.

Residential property as a business opportunity in Slovenia, EU – possibility of business immigration
If you are a non-EU citizen who is starting or expanding business to Slovenia, company formation could also result in business immigration to Slovenia. As many foreigners want to oversee their business first-hand, they tend to want to relocate to Slovenia to make it happen. Non-EU citizens need to obtain a work and residence permit for Slovenia to be able to work in their company and live here. The possibility to obtain it does not come automatically with company establishment. But if your business activity is renting own real estate and you make the purchase of residential property in the amount of at least 50.000€, you have the possibility to apply for a work and residence permit.
