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.

During the online course by Lexxion Publisher all speakers present live via video and audio. Participants are actively involved in the online courses. By offering our participants the possibility to use their microphones and cameras during the whole course, we aim to recreate the atmosphere of a face-to-face Lexxion course. We encourage our participants to ask questions in real time and to take part in live discussions with speakers and other participants. Additionally, we offer breakout sessions, as part of this format, where participants work in smaller groups on real-life cases and exercises. During these exercises, participants have the technical possibility to see other group members and talk to them (using microphone and camera). Moreover, we make use of different interactive features of the online platform, such as polls, multiple choice questions and quizzes. This way participants can test their knowledge on the topic, anonymously. There are ample opportunities for the participants to present their own problematic issues, discuss and solve them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.
