CMS Belgrade Prepares an Overview of the New State aid Law for Interested Market Players

The Serbian Parliament adopted the new State aid Law (Law) in October 2019, exactly ten years after State aid regulation entered the Serbian legal system for the first time. The Law aims to regulate the area in more detail, align local rules with the EU acquis and remove some of the main concerns the European Commission continues to flag in its Progress Reports.

Market players should familiarize themselves with the rights and duties they are likely to have under the Law - they should not be bystanders to the aid granting process but should be well aware of how best to defend their interests and market positions. Companies that receive a governmental benefit need to know if the benefit constitutes State aid and, if so, to ensure that the relevant authorities are duly notified of the aid by the grantor for a compatibility review. This reduces the exposure beneficiaries might face down the road – ex post investigations, disruptive requests for information and on-site inspections, procedural penalties and, most detrimentally, aid recovery. The same holds true for beneficiaries’ competitors and other market players as they can also become formally involved in the proceedings conducted by the regulator or be substantively affected by the aid itself and thus the outcome of the review process.

CMS Belgrade has prepared an overview of the provisions of the Law that should be of the most interest for market players. You can read the full overview here.
