Market Economy Investor Principle


Financing your own municipal company does not always have to involve State aid. In order to reject the presence of State aid, one solution is to prove that the aid is granted on market terms. This means carrying out the so-called Market Economy Investor Principle. This test is also applicable to debt cancellation, transfer of assets, etc.

What can you do?

The crucial issue is to collect the arguments in favor of using a given support and what effects you want to achieve. Come to us with this information – contact COMPER.

What is the threat?

If you provide support without conducting an analysis in this area and are unable to ensure compliance with State aid regulations, you are exposed to a serious violation of the law and your company is at risk of returning the funds obtained.

What COMPER can do for you:

  • Structuring the transaction to ensure compliance with the law,
  • Support in the process of arrangements and changes in the financing structure.
