New Regional Aid Guidelines (“RAG”) 2014-2020
The EU Commission's Regional Aid Guidelines 2014-2020 were published on 27 July 20132. If your company is planning investments based on state subsidies in the next 1-2 years, it is essential that you consider whether the new guidelines apply to you. If they do, there is a greater risk you could be denied state assistance or it could be limited. By bringing forward the investment you may be able to bring it within the current, less restrictive rules.
