Amongst the numerous types of legal entities foreign investors can set up in Slovenia, the applicable legislation also stipulates the partnership, which is a business structure that will require at least two partners. In Slovenia, foreign businessmen can register two main types of partnerships – the limited partnership and the limited partnership with share capital. The registration requirements are similar for both types of structures, but there are also relevant differences that have to be met during the incorporation procedures. Our team of lawyers in Slovenia can offer legal advice on the type of partnership best suited for the investors’ needs and business plans.

Register a limited partnership in Slovenia
A limited partnership (k.d.) in Slovenia has to be registered by at least two investors, associated in the business as partners. The investors can be Slovenian citizens or foreigners, who will sign a contract of members, which is the main statutory document for a limited partnership.
The following video offers information on the main requirements for setting up a Slovenian partnership, as well as on the types of partnerships available here:
In a limited partnership, a partner should assume full liability for the company’s debts, while the other will be considered a limited partner, due to the fact that he or she will not be held responsible for the company’s liabilities. At the same time, the limited partner can assume liability only in respect to the amount of capital he/she invested in the business and our team of attorneys in Slovenia can provide more details on this aspect.
An important aspect when registering a limited partnership in Slovenia refers to the fact that the company will not require a specific amount for the required share capital.
Open a limited partnership with share capital in Slovenia
In a limited partnership with share capital (k.d.d.), the legal requirements specify that only one of the partners must have full liability (including his/her personal assets), while the other investors will be considered limited shareholders, who will not have any liability for the company’s creditors.
The k.d.d. in Slovenia must be formed by drawing the articles of association, which must be signed by minimum five representatives. The legal entity can be established at a public notary in Slovenia.
