Retailer tax vs. state aid

Łukasz Karpiesiuk comments on a recent EU Court ruling on retailer tax:

EU Court will not determine factual circumstances when considering any appeal from the European Commission. The dispute in question is not about facts though – it’s more about how provisions of law should be interpreted. I can see no formal reasons why an appeal could not be made.

It does not seem likely that the EU Court will consider the appeal (if the Commission actually lodges it) still this year. The court can also do it later on, when the retailer tax is unsuspended.
