Most foreigners, who decide to open a company in Slovenia, also want to cooperate and offer their services in other EU countries. For that, their company would already have to be a part of the VAT system. Entrepreneurs often think that the company will be automatically registered within the VAT system but that is not the case.
Company registration in Slovenia and VAT number
In order to do business in Slovenia, you would have to register a company first. Non-EU citizens can register an LTD company with 7.500€ founding capital. While your company will receive a tax number in the process of company registration, this does not mean that is automatically became a part of the VAT system as well.
While it is obligatory to enter the VAT system if your company surpasses 50.000€ of taxable turnover in the last 12 months, there are also possibilities to enter the VAT system voluntarily.
