                                                    State Aid

                                                    This activity is subject to the law governing the level of public sector State Aid which can be given. It falls into the De Minimis category which limits the level of public sector funding for businesses to €200,000(around £142,450) over a 3 year period.

                                                      We are required to take into account any De Minimis aid you may have received from VisitScotland or from any other public body including Local Authorities, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Scottish Government, lottery funding or any EU funding. To enable VisitScotland to meet the regulation requirements, could you please provide us with the date the offer of aid was made, the name of the body providing the aid, what the aid was for and the value of the aid.

                                                        Have you received State Aid? *
