    Subsidy Control

    Low Carbon Dorset is provided through the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) and must comply with rules on Subsidy Control. It is your responsibility to understand the Subsidy Control implication of your application for your organisation. Please confirm below if you have received grants or other support subject to Subsidy Control in this financial year or the previous two financial years (you might also know this as State Aid). Please note that only one SPF grant is allowed per organisation. If we need more details following your expression of interest, we will let you know. Note that the following (among others) can be classed as subsidies/aid: Grants, loans, tax breaks, including enhanced capital allowances, and the use or sale of a state asset for free or at less than market price.

    If the free technical advice you receive from Low Carbon Dorset qualifies as Subsidy Control we estimate that your organisation will receive 15 hours of technical support from Low Carbon Dorset. This support will be free to you but has a value for Subsidy Control purposes of £870, delivered via the Minimum Financial Assistance route, which currently has a maximum threshold of £315,000 in any three-year period.
