In this monograph, we analysed all companies and entrepreneurs in Slovenia for the year 2017, then we compared for the year 2016 or 2015 key data of Slovenia and EU-28 or individual member states in the non-financial business economy. In Slovenia, in 2017 122,618 businesses employed 563,356 people. The majority of businesses (nearly one fifth) operated in the wholesale and retail trade; maintenance and repair of motor vehicles. Likewise, in the EU-28 in 2016 more than a quarter of businesses (25.9% or 6.3 million) was active in the wholesale and retail trade; maintenance and repair of motor vehicles. The average value added per person employed for the aggregated activities of the EU-28 in the year 2016 amounted to 50,900 euros, while in Slovenia 32,700 euros (36% less). In the second part, we studied the transfer of companies. We surveyed a selected sample of experts who represent important actors in a supportive environment for SME transfers. We also carried out a survey on the transfer of companies among the founders/owners of SMEs in Slovenia. We were interested in what type of support they need in this process. In this, we limited ourselves to the age group of entrepreneurs 55+.
