Open-a-Limited-Liability-Company-in-Slovenia.jpgThe limited liability company (d.o.o) represents the most common legal entity registered in Slovenia, but also across the European countries, as it provides advantageous conditions to its shareholders. There aren’t any special regulations applicable to foreign investors, as they can incorporate the legal entity following the same rules available for the local businessmen. However, there are special procedures that have to be completed in this case and our team of lawyers in Slovenia can offer an in-depth presentation on the main requirements applicable to limited liability companies
 

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;
the company’s minimum share capital must be of EUR 7,500;
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
 
Prior to registering the company, each shareholder must deposit at least 25% of his/her individual capital share, while the overall value should amount for the above mentioned value.
 
Other details related to the registration of a Slovenian limited liability company can be provided by our law firm in Slovenia. Please contact our attorneys for other registration requirements, such as the company tax number or the registration with the local authorities.
