Following a judgment by the EU Court of Justice (ECJ) (case C-73/11 P) on its previous decision (case C25/2005), the European Commission has adopted a new decision confirming that a Slovak SKK 416.5 million (€11 million) write-off of tax debt in favour of Frucona Košice, a.s. was incompatible with EU state aid rules.

The non-payment of taxes that its competitors had to bear has given Frucona Košice an undue economic advantage. In order to redress the distortion of competition caused by the debt write-off, the company has to pay the due amounts with interest.
