The General Court dismisses actions against state aid Decision on UK Controlled Foreign Company rules (CFC)

In a decision adopted in 2019, the Commission found that the UK had granted state aid to certain multinational groups in the form of tax exemptions within Controlled Foreign Companies (CFC) rules. The UK and a significant number of companies lodged actions for annulment of this Decision at the General Court.

In the judgments rendered today in cases United Kingdom v Commission (T-363/19) and ITV v Commission (T-456/19), the General Court considered the actions unfounded and dismissed them in their entirety.

Judgment in joined cases T-363/19 and T-456/19
