State Aid for Tax Measures

As tax measures differ from classical state aid measures, we dedicate this one-day Lexxion Training Hybrid to the principles of applying direct taxation including an assessment of the compatibility of fiscal aid with the internal market of the EU. Next to an introduction to concept and principles of State aid, an in-depth analysis of most significant cases and European Commission decisions will be made.

The event will take place as a hybrid event, which gives speakers and participants the opportunity to participate face-to-face or online via a live stream.

Participants receive a certificate upon participation.

Overview

State aid in the form of tax measures and exemptions differs from classical subsidies-based aid. In the absence of explicit State aid regulation for fiscal measures, general State aid rules and principles apply, in accordance with relevant case law. As the Commission’s practice and the Courts’ jurisprudence are in constant evolution, the assessment of potential State aid constitutes a peculiar challenge for practitioners dealing with the design and implementation of fiscal policies.

In this Lexxion Training Hybrid we discuss the State aid in the form of tax measures combines the presentation of rules and principles applying to direct taxation with an assessment of the compatibility of fiscal aid with the internal market. An in-depth analysis of most significant cases and Commission decisions completes the day.
