Register a Slovenian legal entity 

Foreign investors are allowed to set up any type of legal entity provided by the commercial legislation applicable in Slovenia. The regulations referring to the registration of a company in Slovenia are given by the Companies Act. An entrepreneur can also start a business as a sole trader, which represents the simplest form of performing business activities here. 

The registration procedure starts by obtaining a certificate on the company’s trading name, a step which has to be concluded prior to the legal incorporation of the legal entity

All companies in Slovenia are required to appoint a director. However, in the case of a sole trader, the requirement is not applicable. It is also necessary to establish a head office of the company, but also to open a corporate bank account. The procedure is handled at any commercial bank in Slovenia and the investors should deposit the minimum share capital, which can vary depending on the business form chosen for incorporation. 

Our team of attorneys in Slovenia can offer further information on other registration requirements, such as on the compulsory registration for taxation matters.
