Legal filing requirements:

Public Limited Companies file accounts and publish them in national newspapers and Private Limited Company accounts are available through the payment bureau.

It is not compulsory for other company types in Slovenia to publish financial statements, however these companies are all obliged to prepare financial statements and file them with the State by 28 February each year. In general terms, financial statements can be obtained from state against payment. It is compulsory for Proprietorships to prepare financial but they cannot be obtained from state agencies against payment.

It is reported that Slovenian companies usually have a nominal capital figure which is lower than the issued capital figure. This is due to annual capital revaluation which is added to the issued capital figure each year.
