Starting a company in Slovenia – Slovenian tax number
Before you start doing business in Slovenia, you have to make sure that you have prepared yourself well for it. When starting a company in Slovenia, you have to make sure that you have all the necessary documents for company registration. One of the most important documents is the Slovenian tax number. All shareholders and representatives have to obtain it prior to company registration. You can apply for them at the Slovenian tax office by filling out a written application. You can also authorize a third party to obtain it for you. Once you have submitted the application, it takes 8 days to obtain it.
Starting a company in Slovenia – business address in Slovenia
The company will also be needing a business address in Slovenia. Even before starting the company you need a business address where it will be registered. When you have the address chosen, the owner of the business space will have to give you consent that he agrees that the company will be registered to your business address. The owner signs a special statement and notarizes it at the administrative unit or at the notary. You then bring this statement with you when you are registering the company. It is also possible that the owner of the business space comes with you to the VEM point for company registration. In that case, the consultant at the VEM point can notarize the statement.
Starting a company in Slovenia – founding capital
When starting a company in Slovenia, non-EU citizens can open an LTD company. It is a private company limited by shares and required 7.500€ founding capital. It is money that the shareholders have to deposit in the process of company registration to the corporate bank account. You can deposit this money in cash or through bank transfer from your personal bank account. When the company is officially registered, you can use these funds for business expenses. If there is more than one shareholder, each has to present the percentage of the 7.500€ that is agreed within the act of establishment.
Starting a company in Slovenia – company registration
When you have all documents ready, the shareholders and representatives have to come to Slovenia for company registration. Firstly, you will sign the company’s act of establishment at a VEM point (registration office) in Slovenia. Within this document you agree on the basic details of the company – who is owner, representative, where the business address is, what business activities the company will provide etc.
Once you sign all those documents, you will have to go to a bank in Slovenia and open a temporary bank account. To this account, the shareholders deposit the 7.500€ founding capital. The bank issues a certificate of deposit, which you then supply to the consultant who prepared your documents for company establishment. The consultant then submits all registration documents to court and the company if officially registered within 3-5 business days. Once you receive the decree of company registration, you can activate the company’s bank account and start doing business in Europe.
