Subsidy control – replacing state aid in Great Britain


Share

From 1 January the UK government brought into force a new subsidy control/compliance system. 

This means that in Great Britain state aid law no longer applies to public funding/investment granted on or after 1 January 2021 though for certain activities it will still apply in Northern Ireland under the Northern Ireland Protocol. In the whole of the UK public support granted before the 1 January 2021 will remain subject to state aid law until 11 pm on the 31st December 2024.

The EU UK Trade and Co-operation Agreement (TCA) sets out the principles for a replacement UK subsidy control system as well as a range of new terms for old state aid subsidy definitions.
