Holding company registered as a societas europaea
A societas europaea (SE) is a new type of legal entity available in the member states of the European Union (EU) which provides a simpler registration procedure, compatible at the level of the Community. That means that the company can relocate in another EU member state without having to dissolve the legal entity and re-register it in the other country.
A holding company can be registered in Slovenia as a SE, which must be performed according to the 32 Article Regulation 2157/2001/EC.
The procedure should be comprised of the establishment plan of the entity, as well as on the Minutes of Assembly, in which the company’s partners provide their consent for the registration of the business form.
It also needs to contain a foundation report and an audit on the respective report. The foundation plan must be registered with the local authorities.
