Limited liability company in Slovenia
The regulations related to limited liability companies (d.o.o) in Slovenia
stipulate that the investors – who are associated in the company as shareholders
- are not liable for the debts incurred by the company.
The d.o.o in Slovenia
is considered a separate legal entity
and it must be registered with the Slovenian authorities
. It is also required to state in its company name
the abbreviation d.o.o
The minimum requirements when setting up a d.o.o in Slovenia are the following:
• minimum one shareholder, who can also be a foreign businessman;
• minimum one director, who can also be represented by a foreign citizen.
As a general rule, a limited liability company
must have a maximum of 50 shareholders
. However, the regulation provides an exemption in this sense, thus allowing more shareholders
, but only in the situation in which the ministry for economic affairs provides an approval on this matter. Our team of attorneys in Slovenia
can offer further details on this aspect.
Capital requirements for Slovenian d.o.o
As mentioned above, the company must have a minimum share capital of EUR 7,500. Investors are required to contribute to the company’s capital with minimum EUR 50/person, but the capital contribution can differ amongst shareholders.
