About this initiative


National governments usually require EU approval to provide assistance to domestic businesses that might give them an unfair advantage over other EU competitors.
The State aid de minimis Regulation exempts small amounts of these subsidies because they are not considered to distort competition.
The Regulation will expire by the end of 2020. To ensure sufficient time to assess how it has worked and should work in the future, this proposal will extend it by 2 years.
