State Aid

State Aid is a form of government assistance essential for the survival of many companies. Low-interest loans, financial assistance, collaterals, guarantees and shareholding which help companies liquidity are financed by individual governments. The European Commission will only permit such measures if a set of stringent requirements are observed.

Clear rules and regulations for awards

The basis for granting state aid is laid down in the Lisbon Treaty. It stipulates that State aid must be compatible with the EU single market and must not impede trade between member states or distort competition. The laws on state aid are being constantly revised at both national and European levels and need to be checked permanently.

Extend your expertise by participating in the various events held by the European Academy for Taxes, Economics & Law in this area.
