Back on track

Once again I did not realize how long I had taken between entries. Shame on me! I am seriously considering picking a day each week to write entries so I can update more regularly. Enough regretting my poor effort!
How is everyone doing with the QLTS preparation? Any advice you would like to share with all of us? Here is mine: read the whole range of manuals or study material quickly and as many times as you can rather than focussing too much on just one area as it will stop you from progressing. Let me put it this way, there are 11 outcomes to get through and just 4 months to go. Times flies and eventually you might feel you are working against the clock!
By the way I am planning to take the MCT exam on the 23rd of January. So no much time to waste... In fact, I am going to make myself a cup of tea and carry on with my study.

In the meantime here is a simple question that will challenge your knowledge about EU Law:

A private company, which sells its goods in member countries of the EU, wants to increase its share of the market. It persuaded its own government to suspend tax on its profits for 2 years to make its prices more competitive. According to EU Law:
a) No breach of the EU Law
b) No breach of the EU Law, if its tax payment halved
c) No breach of the EU Law, if its tax payment reduced by 10%
d) Absolutely forbidden by the EU Law
e) It is a domestic matter not affected by the EU Law
Feel free to answer but please include an explanation. Good luck!


  1. The answer is D. Absolutely forbidden as the government's help constitutes 'state aid'.
