State Aid for Tax Measures

Taxation
Date: Monday, 20 November 2017 - Tuesday, 21 November 2017

Venue: Brussels  |  City: Brussels, Belgium

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.

Our two-day intensive training on 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, and with an in-depth analysis of most significant cases and Commission decisions.


Thematic scope

  • General Principles of the Application of State Aid Rules to Tax Measures
  • Article 107(1) TFEU and Tax Measures
  • Review of the Concept of Selectivity and its Application to Tax Measures
  • The 2016 Notice on the Notion of State Aid: Aspects Relating to Direct Business
  • The Current Investigations
  • The Spanish Goodwill and Tax Lease Cases
  • Environmental Taxes and the NOx and British Aggregates Cases
  • Parafiscal Levies and Hypothecation of Tax Measures
  • Best Practice: Application of State Aid Rules to Tax Measures in the Hungarian Practice
