State Aid Rules

The award of some relief is classed as State Aid under European Union Law and Colchester Borough Council must therefore comply with the European Union State Aid legislation. You will therefore need to confirm that the granting of this relief will not result in your organisation exceeding the state aid threshold of €200,000. Further information on State Aid law can be found here.

When we apply the relief, we will issue a state aid form that is required to be completed and returned. If we establish state aid limits have been exceeded then the relief will be removed.
