What is the difference between a sole proprietor and an agency?
These are terms used colloquially for the legal form of „preduzetnik (PR)“ ie. a natural person performing a particular business activity. When registering an agency or sole trader, the term agency may be added to the name, with all other items required by law as a mandatory part of the business name for sole traders.
Is it mandatory to register more than one business activity code?
According to the Act on Companies, all business entities, including soel traders, are obliged to register one predominant activity, that is, the activity that they will be most engaged in. At the same time, the Law allowed business entities to perform other activities that are not prohibited by law, regardless of whether they are registered or not.
Can an employee become a sole trader?
Absolutely. Any person who is employed may also register as a sole trader, which is registered as an additional activity.
Can PR (sole proprietor) be transferred to d.o.o (LLC)?
The Companies Act allows such a change in legal form. In this case, two proceedings are conducted at the Serbian Business Registers Agency. Firstly, closing the PR and then the procedure for establishing a company, ie. limited liability companies - d.o.o is performed.
What is the difference between lump sum tax rates and self-taxation?
In case of flat tax rate the sole trader pays a monthly amount of taxes according to the decision made by the competent tax administration. The amount is determined on the basis of several parameters, so it cannot be precisely determined before. Self-taxation is a form of controlling your salary and pay taxation on that amount. For this type of self- taxation, it is essential that you have a licensed bookkeeper who will professionally keep your books in compliance with applicable regulations.
Can the address of Sole Proprietor match the address of residence?
The sole trader form allows this possibility. It is necessary to obtain the consent of the property owner to cede the premises to perform the business activity or to make a contract of renting the space. The only requirement is that the address of sole trader must be at the teritory of Serbia.
