Process of opening an LTD company in Slovenia, EU and becoming a shareholder
If you have decided to become a shareholder, you can open a new LTD company in Slovenia. For that you need founding capital of at least 7.500€. Additionally, all shareholders and representatives have to obtain a Slovenian tax number. When registering the company, you also need to present a business address in Slovenia.
When you have all those documents, you need to come to Slovenia for at least 2 weeks to register the company. In that time, you sign the act of establishment and decide on the company’s business activities. Then you go to the bank, where you open a temporary bank account. There, you deposit the founding capital 7.500 € either in cash or through bank transfer from your personal bank account. When you do that, the court registers the company in 3-5 business days.
