Transport company in Slovenia – Business immigration to EU

Transport company in Slovenia is a great option for expanding your transport business to the EU.  Having said that, this industry is heavily regulated. So, if you are planing to launch your business in the EU, here is what you need to know.


Registering a transport company

If you want to set up a transport business in Slovenia, it has to be a LTD company. Branch office is not one of your options. Founder can be a physical or a business entity. To register a LTD company you need to have a share capital. What kind of money are we talking about? It depends on what kind of vehicles you intend to use. For vehicles up to 3,5 tons in weight, you need 7500,00 euro of share capital. For vehicles which weigh more than 3,5 tons, your share capital has to be 9000,00 euro for first and 5000,00 euro for every next vehicle. Also, in case you intend to use vehicles up to 3,5 tons it is not necessary to register a transport company. You can choose another business activity.
