To ensure that aid from national and local governments to private companies is legal, state aid has become an important field of law in the European Union. As a MNE, are you aware of potential state aid risks that you may have to manage and control in the European Union? We help you to be on top of it.
The European Commission intensified investigations into illegal state aid as companies in the EU are receiving more government support in the current economic climate. This presents MNEs with some new challenges: For instance, how do you respond to the auditor if asked whether your group is exposed to state aid risks? Do you need to take measures to identify or reduce risks from previous years? If a state aid risk exists, what must be disclosed in your financial statements?
