State Aid

State Aid law is the means by which the European Union regulates state funded support to businesses.

The award of this relief is considered likely to amount to state aid. However it will be state aid compliant where it is provided in accordance with the De Minimis Regulations EC 1407/2013. The De Minimis Regulations allow an undertaking to receive up to €200,000 ‘de minimis’ aid over a rolling three-year period.

If you are receiving, or have received, any ‘de minimis’ aid granted during the current or two previous financial years (from any source), please contact us straight away with details of the aid received.
