Abstract: The financial crisis has demonstrated that banks may end up holding toxic or impaired assets that harm their perceived solvency and liquidity.

To address that difficulty, the European Commission has issued policy guidelines defining to what extent such banks can be relieved from impaired assets under the rules on State aids.

An important question in that regard is the assessment of whether any assistance from governments may distort competition between financial institutions.
