Your state aid challenges

As an MNE you will need to be in control of potential state aid risks. There are potentially a number of challenges for you to consider, including:

  • 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, quantify, control or reduce risks from previous years, and what are the consequences of these measures for you.
  • If a state aid risk exists, what must be disclosed in your financial statements?
  • How can you prepare for a state aid investigation?
