The most common way to legally pursue an activity is to set up a company, for example, in the form of a limited liability company or sole proprietor – a self-employed person, who may also be employed. In cases of performing certain activities and fulfilling the conditions, you can also obtain a special status. When you want to legally perform certain activities as a natural person, you can also do business through contractual agreements, or pogodb o delu or edit the status of performing personal complementary work.

Partnership

If you intend to do business remotely with a company outside of Slovenia, we recommend that you consider the arrangement of the partnership. In this case, business decisions, responsibilities, costs, profits and risks are shared. Partnership is a relatively simple and flexible business method, but in the event of failure, it does not provide protection, as each partner is personally liable for all business debts. There is also the possibility of a merged company with an existing company, which has many advantages, including access to the existing sales and distribution network in the RS.
