(All businesses established before August 31, 2003 will continue to count according to international sponsoring rules.) International sponsoring from outside the CLOS Region continues to be available. If an ABO has no business in any of the countries that make up the CLOS Region, he will be allowed to establish one new business in the CLOS Region. An ABO or Member Plus who already has at least one business in the CLOS region will not be allowed to establish another one.

Establish a Second Business

International Sponsoring
International sponsoring is always an option and an excellent means of expanding your business while avoiding many of the costs and complexities associated with establishing a second business. Please note: For those markets where foreigners are able to establish a second business, they must be the international sponsor of their second business in another country.

Immigration Issues
Amway recommends Amway Business Owners consult the local Slovenian embassy in their home country to determine the type of visa or permit required for travel.

Citizens of many Amway affiliate countries may not require short term visas (for stays less than three months). Generally, foreign Amway Business Owners staying in Slovenia on a short-term basis will not be required to obtain a visa. Those stays longer than the short-term maximum will be required to obtain either a work or a business visa. Amway Business Owners doing business as individuals will need a work visa (permit). However, it will be difficult for most foreign Amway Business Owners to qualify for a work visa (permit). A business visa can be obtained by Amway Business Owners doing business as a legal entity and who are listed in the court register. Amway Business Owners should consult legal experts in Slovenia to obtain advice on appropriate immigration requirements. Consulting a legal or tax expert is also important if you do not intend to reside in Slovenia.

Formation and Registration of Your Business
With certain exceptions, foreign Amway Business Owners may conduct business in Slovenia under the same conditions as Slovenian nationals.

The first step is to select a form in which to organize your business. The most common legal forms are:

- Independent Entrepreneur – entails personal liability
- General Partnership - joint and several personal liability
- Limited Liability Company

The form of your business should be based on cost, formality of your organization, taxation, and liability issues. Amway recommends that Amway Business Owners consult a knowledgeable attorney before establishing a business in Slovenia. When discussing the organizational form of your business, please be sure to consider dissolution costs. International Sponsoring is an excellent means of expanding your business while avoiding many of these costs.

Municipal tax and social insurance registrations, are required for independent entrepreneurs to start a business in Slovenia.

Limited Liability Companies must be formed and registered through a Court Register.

Amway requires that all Amway Business Owners who have formed business entities provide evidence of registrations on the Amway Business Owners Application. Bonus payments will be held in escrow until the appropriate information is provided. A local address and local bank account is also required.
