This research focused on the European Union's legal framework for the granting of state aid by means of tax incentives and on the World Trade Organization's Subsidies Agreement regulating tax incentives affecting export and import. Within both frameworks, a conceptual analysis of tax incentives was performed and procedural inconsistensies were identified.
