COVID-19 European Grants and Incentives – State Aid Guidance

COVID-19 European Grants and Incentives – State Aid Guidance

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the European Commission passed a framework of support for companies of all sizes in all EU member states. The aid packages are mostly in the form of loan guarantees, including state guarantees for loans taken by companies from banks, subsidized public loans to companies, safeguards for banks that channel state aid to the real economy and short-term export credit insurance.

Duff & Phelps’ Site Selection and Incentives Advisory practice provides a summary of approved EU member state programs. In partnership with the European Funding Alliance, Duff & Phelps will continue to monitor and provide frequent country-by-country updates as they are approved by the European Commission.

In addition to these programs approved under the new framework, every national government has passed additional measures, such as tax filing and payment deferrals as well as reimbursements of salary expenditures for companies that retain employees through the downturn.
