Press Release: State aid: Commission concludes part of UK tax scheme gave illegal tax advantages to certain multinational companies; remaining part does not constitute aid

The European Commission has found that a UK tax scheme is partly justified and does not constitute State aid, insofar as it ensures the proper functioning and effectiveness of the relevant tax rules. However, the Commission found that the scheme unduly exempted certain multinational groups from these UK rules targeting tax avoidance. This is illegal under EU State aid rules. The UK must now recover the illegal State aid from the multinational companies that benefited from it.

Press release: Auditors examine EU oversight of state aid to banks

Press release: The General Court annuls the Commission’s decision that support measures adopted by a consortium governed by private law for the benefit of one of its members constituted ‘aid granted by a State’

In 2013, an Italian bank, Banca Popolare di Bari (‘BPB’), expressed an interest in the subscription of additional capital in another Italian bank, Banca Tercas (‘Tercas’), which had been placed under special administration in 2012. In 2014, after satisfying itself that the measures adopted for the benefit of Tercas were economically more beneficial than reimbursement of that bank’s depositors, theFondo Interbancario di Tutela dei Depositi (FITD) decided to cover Tercas’s negative equity and to grant it certain guarantees. Those measures were approved by Banca d’Italia. The Commission initiated a detailed investigation into those measures as it was uncertain whether they were compatible with EU rules on State aid. By today’s judgment, the General Court annuls the Commission’s decision, as it concluded, incorrectly, that the measures granted to Tercas entailed the use of State resources and were imputable to the State.
