Business immigration to Slovenia

The term active business conduct frequently appears when describing steps of business immigration to Slovenia. Business immigration means relocating to another country to oversee the business you have set up. Hence, the first step of business immigration is company registration. Non-EU citizens can register an LTD company with providing 7500€ share capital.

After the company if officially registered the company has to fulfill one of three conditions to show the company’s active business conduct. Only after fulfilling the condition, the representative has the opportunity to apply for work and residence permit.

What does active business conduct mean in terms of business immigration?

While in the broader scope of doing business, active business conduct means any business activity that generates income for the company. But in terms of business immigration to Slovenia, the Slovenian legislation stipulates specific conditions that fall under active business conduct.

The legislation determines that active business conduct for business immigration is fulfilled if the company completes one of these three conditions:

  • investing 50.000€ into fixed assets of the company,
  • employing an EU citizen for 6 months on a full workday,
  • showing monthly company revenue 10.000€ for 6 consecutive months

A detailed description of the conditions of active business conduct

If you decide to fulfill the condition of investment, your company would have to purchase items in the amount of at least 50.000€ in the first 6 months from company registration. The cost of the item or items you purchase have to amount to at least 50.000€.  The purchase has to be connected to your company’s business activity.

Should your company decide to fulfill active business conduct by employing an EU citizen, it means that you need to employ the person on full-time on a 40-hour week. Your company would need to pay the employee at a monthly salary for at least 6 months. When the 6 months have passed, you can apply for your work and residence permit.

The last condition means that your company will have to start issuing invoices and receiving payment from clients. The revenue the company generates has to amount to at least 10.000€ per month. It has to continue for 6 months without interruptions. When the 6 months of this revenue has passed, you can apply for your work and residence permit.

Keep in mind that your company has to fulfill only one of these conditions of active business conduct, not all of them.
