OVERVIEW OF ESTABLISHED AND DISSOLVED JOINT STOCK COMPANIES, LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANIES, AND TRADES FROM 1990 TO 2018
Currently, there are approximately 6000 active joint stock companies. Of the first joint stock companies registered immediately after 1990, the company Brown - Immo Slov, a.s., Bratislava is still operation. It was registered in the Business Register on 25 April. The permit was granted by the Ministry of Development and Construction of the Slovak Republic. In the description of the principal activity, the company lists the lease and sale of real estate.
The growth of limited liability companies since 2016 was mainly due to the transfer of part of trade operators to the legal form s.r.o. The reason was that the business was more advantageous. The slight increase in the number of trades in 2017 is also due to the introduction of higher flat-rate expenses in the amount of 60 percent of income.
