Summary:

Temporary Framework adopted by the European Commission on 19 March 2020, relating to State aid rules and support to the economy in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Further information:

The Temporary Framework enables Member States of the European Union (EU) to ensure that sufficient liquidity remains available to businesses of all types and to preserve the continuity of economic activity during and after the COVID-19 outbreak. It is based on Article 107(3)(b) TFEU, and it recognises that the economy across the EU is experiencing a serious disturbance. The Temporary Framework provides for five types of aid:

  • Direct grants, selective tax advantages and advance payments;
  • State guarantees for loans taken by companies from banks;
  • Subsidised public loans to companies;
  • Safeguards for banks that channel State aid to the real economy;
  • Short-term export credit insurance.

This Framework was put forward alongside a number of other possibilities, many of which set out in a Communication published by the European Commission on economic coordination in the context of the sanitary crisis. The Temporary Framework was set to be in place until December 2020.

A number of schemes from different Member States - and from the United Kingdom (UK) - were later approved in the context of this Temporary Framework. On 3 April 2020, the European Commission adopted an amendment extending the scope of the Temporary Framework, followed by a second amendment published on 8 May 2020. A third amendment was tabled on 29 June 2020.
