Main provisions of the Companies Act presented by our experts in company formation in Slovenia

A company operates under a registered name. In Slovenia, the name cannot contain name or logo of foreign countries or international bodies (it’s mandatory for the name to be in Slovenian). A registered name must be unique and mustn’t break the law or moral.

A name of a registered company can be transferred only if the company is also transferred.

In case of a partnership, if a member’s name is used in the company registered name and that person is no longer part of the partnership, he must give its consent regarding the use of his name in the partnership further more. If that partner dies, his name must be erased from the partnership’s name.

Any Slovanian company must also hold a registered office, where the commercial activities take place.

All the companies are represented by appointed persons, registered in the Articles of Association or by law. The representatives carry out legal activities in behalf of the company.
