State Aid 

The award of discretionary reliefs is considered likely to amount to state aid. However, it will be state aid compliant where it is provided in accordance with the De Minimis Regulation EC 1407/2013. Regulations allow an undertaking to receive up to EUR 200,000 'de minimis' aid over a rolling three-year period. 

If you are receiving, or have received, any 'de minimis' aid granted during the current or two previous financial years (from any source), you should inform the local authority immediately with details of the aid received.
