CMS Ex­pert Guide to State Aid Dur­ing Coronavir­us Crisis
Any busi­ness in the world could be af­fected by the coronavir­us (COV­ID-19) pan­dem­ic. For many, ur­gent meas­ures need to be taken to avoid ser­i­ous fin­an­cial con­sequences as a res­ult of these chal­len­ging and un­pre­ced­en­ted times. Against this back­drop, gov­ern­ments are in­tro­du­cing new meas­ures to provide dir­ect fin­an­cial and non-fin­an­cial sup­port to busi­nesses of all sizes. Any such meas­ures need to com­ply with EU State Aid law and many will re­quire ap­prov­al by the EU Com­mis­sion.
