Opening a company in Slovenia, EU

If you would like to engage in trading business, your first step would be to register a company in Slovenia. Non-EU citizens can register an LTD company with 7500€ share capital. When doing the company registration, you would also need to present Slovenian tax numbers for all shareholders and representatives as well as a business address for your company in Slovenia.

Within the company’s act of establishment, you can list various business activities. Trading is a broad business scope and you can specify in the act what kind of trading you will engage in – like retail, wholesale, list specific products you plan on trading. Slovenia does not foresee a trading license when registering the company but the type of the product you are selling and the origin are important. If you are importing from non-EU countries, your products might be subjected to obtaining specific certificates of quality. Also, when trading items like food products, chemicals, gasoline or cosmetics, obtaining additional certification would be required as well as abiding by additional standards and regulations.

You can also engage in trading by opening an online store. Soon, the option to sell through Amazon Europe in Slovenia would be possible for Slovenian companies.

Obtaining the VAT number for your trading company

Your company would have to enter the VAT system if the revenue from the business activity surpassed 50.000€ in the last 12 months. But if you plan on trading with companies in other EU state, you would have to enter the VAT system voluntarily. Obtaining the ID number for VAT for your company is a service we also provide at Data d.o.o.
