You have decided to open a company in Slovenia – what are the steps before opening a company in Slovenia?
Before opening a company in Slovenia, the foreign entrepreneur has to decide, which type of business form he would like to establish. If it would be a private limited company (LTD), where the future owners and co-owners are natural persons or would it be a subsidiary or a branch office. EU citizens can also decide to register the form of a sole proprietor (s.p.).
Reservation of company name
Before opening a company in Slovenia, you have to select a company name in Slovenia carefully. You have to pick a title for the company – a short form and a long form that also contains the basic activity of the company. The name can be chosen in a foreign language and can contain letters that are not in the Slovenian alphabet (X, Y, W and Q). The title has to be clearly distinguished from other company names in the Slovenian business registry. You can carry out the reservation of the company name before preparing the documentation for the registration of a LTD at our »One Stop Shop«. This procedure cannot be performed without the Slovenian tax number of the founder (natural or legal person).
Before opening a company in Slovenia, set a meeting at a bank to open a business account
Newly established companies have to open a business account at a bank of their choice after the registration of the company at the »One Stop Shop«. We advise you to set up an appointment at the bank before the process of the registration.
Prepare a business address of the company
You have to pick out a business address for your new company even before the registration at our »One Stop Shop«. If you are not an owner or co-owner of the real estate, you have to have a certified statement of the owner of the real estate that allows you to use this property as your business address. The owner of the property himself can also confirm the authentication personally at our »One Stop Shop«. You can decide to hire a virtual office at our company’s headquarters and register your newly established company at our business address.
Before opening a company in Slovenia, prepare your documentation
A natural person has to obtain a certificate of non-criminal record in the Republic of Slovenia before the registration of the company. We can obtain this certificate for you based on a power-of-attorney.
