Subsidy Control

In order to avoid public funding distorting competition within the European & UK Common Market, UK law regulates the levels of assistance which the public sector can provide to businesses (“Subsidy Control”). You should note carefully the requirements needed to comply with the UK subsidy control rules and if need be, refer to the relevant legislation.

It is proposed that the assistance provided needs to comply with the UK’s subsidy control regime since it will be provided in line with the Minimal Financial Assistance provision (in accordance with the UK subsidy control regime (Chapter 4 of the UK Subsidy Control Regime 2022).

If, within the current or past two fiscal years, your business, or any other business that it may be linked with, has received support from any public sources in any form, financial or non-financial, then your business may have received aid through the Minimal Financial Assistance provision.

MFA has a financial threshold so no recipient can receive more than £315,000 over the applicable period; The elapsed part of the current financial year (i.e. from 1 April), and the two financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

Please complete the Statement of Previous Aid received under the Minimal Financial Assistance provision, remembering to give consideration to any other business that your business may be linked with. Using this information we will assess your eligibility to receive assistance.

If you are in any doubt as to whether previous assistance received would constitute Minimal Financial Assistance please contact a member of the team.
